A Little Stash...

...Appeared while I was away! :) I ordered "Beloved" by A Stitcher's Hands after seeing Gill's beautiful progress. Now I'm just trying to decide which fabric would be best, and if I should stitch it over two or one??

Beloved with DMC and 32 ct. Vintage Lentil

Here is the design with 32 ct. Vintage Lentil. If I chose this fabric, which I like a lot, I'd have to stitch it over one because I don't have enough to stitch it over two. So I was leaning a little bit towards this one....

Beloved with DMC and 32 ct. Vintage Examplar

32 ct. Vintage Examplar. I could stitch it over two if I chose this one. I don't know. I can't make a decision right now. My brain is mush! :) I think I need a nap!

Thank you to everyone for your kind compliments on my bedroom. I tried taking a picture of the living room, but I have terrible lighting in there (not that I'm complaining)! I'll try again in a few weeks. :) Write later!

edited to add: I just found this piece of Antique White linen in my stash, which is also a possibility!

Beloved with DMC and 32 ct. Antique White Belfast

Edited again to add: I stopped by my LNS and ended up getting a piece of 34 ct. Cafe Au Lait (what Gill is using for her's and what I'm using for my Happy Home Sampler). I think I found it the right fabric now! :)



  1. Wow that is a beautiful chart! It looks so involved! No matter what fabric you choose, it will be beautiful :)

  2. Oh yes the 34ct Cafe Au Lait seems just right

  3. Well I had been going to say I preferred the 2nd one as I liked the warmer pinky tones best, but when i saw your 4th choice then that was just perfect. I will really look forward to seeing your start on this one.

  4. I like all the fabrics, but I think you made the right choice with the 34ct. Cafe Au Lait.

  5. I'm happy to enable! lol

  6. It's not a design I would attempt over-one, but I bet it would look stunning!

  7. I love the cafe au lait (the vintage examplar had that warm feel)

  8. Great fabric choice! I just love her designs (she lives very near me, and sometimes works at my LNS). Can't wait to see a start!
