I finally finished Simply Live last night!

The Primitive Needle "Simply Live"
The Primitive Needle "Simply Live"
Fabric: 40 ct. Pearled Barley

Here is the list of the threads I used...

Called for Valdani - I used
P8 Old Rose - Same
P11 Aged Black - GAST Soot
P10 Antique Violet - WDW Purple Haze
P2 Olive Green - GAST Dried Thyme

I'm going to put The Primitive Needle "ABC Hornbook" in this rotation spot starting next week. Hopefully I get the fabric by then (I ordered 40 ct. Purely Primitive from Silkweaver for it).

P.S. I will be adding this chart to the 1000th post giveaway! :)

  2. When the picture of your finish popped up, my first thought was, "Oh, what wonderful colors!" Then I read about your conversion. Your substitutions are excellent.

    This pattern keeps catching my eye, so maybe I'll have to stitch it eventually.

  16. WOO! It looks fabulous, Nicole! I'm so psyched that you're moving to the ABC Hornbook, too. Thursdays are my Primitive Needle day and I love it! The Hornbook will be fabulous on Purely Primitive--can't wait to see some WIP pics when you get going.
