What I've been up to...

40 ct. Straw by WDW, Belle Soie silks

I worked on Melicent a little bit.

Blackbird Designs Summer

I kitted the new Loose Feathers pattern. I'm thinking of using 40 ct. V. Pecan Butter (shown) or 40 ct. Examplar.

Belle Soie and NPI
36 ct. V. Sand Dune by Lakeside Linens, Belle Soie and NPI silks

And I started working on a model for one of my favorite designers. :)

Autumn at Hawk Run Hollow

A friend was wondering what Picture this Plus fabric might work for AaHRH. I told her I thought Relic might work. I did a floss toss with some of the called for DMC threads and I think it works really well!

Last Import-2

Now, after taking this picture, I want to set everything aside and start it! I was planning on using Sand Dune, but maybe Relic would be a better choice! :)

40 ct. Straw by Weeks Dye Works, Belle Soie silks.

This is all I have worked on in the last 10 days or so. I seem to be in a slump. I think it must be the heat!! Hopefully, I can snap out of it soon! :)

40 ct. Straw WDW Linen, Belle Soie silks

I have been using the hoop on and off because the WDW linen is a little soft and it's sometimes hard to see the holes. Other than that I'm loving it! :)

I can't wait to get started! Diane did a great job with the adaption of this sampler and I love the colors she chose!

I think I may use Vanilla Pudding instead of Baguette though. The Baguettes I have are all a little dark. The linen I'm thinking of using is 40 ct. WDW Straw.

I also finished up block 6 of VoHRH. I would have been done sooner, but I had to do some frogging.
