Thread Pulls (AKA Cross Stitch Fashion Show)

I decided to pull some of the threads for some of things I'd like to start next. The first is LHN "Home of a Needleworker (Too)." The threads are all Crescent Colours and the fabric is 32 ct. Vintage Light Examplar.

Crescent Colours Threads for Home of a Needleworker.

Aren't they gorgeous! The next one is CCN "Garden Girl" I just love this pattern. It's so pretty and dainty.

The threads are all DMC, but one Crescent Colour. The fabric is 32 ct. Lambswool Jobelan. Another CCN I'd like to start sometime in the future is "Cherry Hill." I love the pinks and the sheep. It's just so cute! :)

The threads are Crescent Colours and DMC and the fabric is 32 ct. Antique White Lugana. I had "Valentine Wishes" with the wrong fabric yesterday. Here's another picture with the right fabric...

Bluebird Designs Valentine Wishes

Not that it's a huge difference! This fabric is unknown. I told Lois from Elegant Stitch to pick out a pretty pink fabric for it and she chose this. I think it's by R&R and could possibly be the fabric it's called for which is "For the Cure Pink." I'll have to ask Lois because it wasn't labeled.

The 32 ct. Bittersweet is actually for a different pattern that I forgot to share. It's one I got earlier in the week from Down Sunshine Lane.

Bluebird Designs Tokens of Affections

It's Bluebird Designs new pattern "Small Tokens of Affection." And you all are so right my stash diet will never last. I'm sure it will have to wait until after Nashville. There are just too many cute things coming out!! I may have to find some more things to put up for sale in order to get anything though!! :) Write later!

  2. I just bought the first three LHN/CC patterns you list in this post. I love them all!! You must have quite the collection of Crescent Colours threads. You seem to have all of them for every project! I am jealous. I think all of the fabric you have picked out is just fab. I just bought my first piece of linen, 32 count Light Mocha Belfast, because of seeing it on your blog! It looks so great with so many projects. Can't wait to see some WIP's.

  18. Wonderful fashion show! I love the pink for your Blue Ribbon piece. The pink she uses for the Essie's Friends pieces is a much brighter darker pink - not sure what the piece is you've got, but it's beautiful!
