New Start

I have had a bit of startitis lately. I started the Samsarah ornament from the JCS 2007 ornament preview issue on Weeks Dye Works 30 count Cocoa linen and my own threads, GAST Cranberry, Mulberry, and Crescent Colours Bamboo, Weeping Willow, and Black Coffee. I have buttons on order for this ornament as well, two stars and a red cardinal.




I have learned I really do not like working with Weeks Dye Works threads. They just seem to lay differently than other threads.

I have also learned to like Weeks Dye Works 30 count linen. I used to feel the weave was too loose, but after putting a piece in a Q-snap, that seems to be the trick, keeping the fabric as taut as possible. Such gorgeous colors in this fabric!

Until next time...

Wow, is that Frosty the snowman? He’s really cute and happy in those stitches! Great job! I hope you could finish it soon. I’m pretty excited to see Mr. Snowman once again in that gorgeous smile. Anyway, I just passed by to check on you. Have a snowy and fun weekend!
