I have to admit I have trouble resisting a mystery project and so I had to join the With Thy Needle and Thread mystery Sampler - Birds of a Feather. Suffice to say, with a postal strike (I ordered my supplies from Canada) and the need for the supplies to have a long plane flight and the "rapidity" of Australia Post I received my first part the day the last part of the mystery was revealed. I may like a mystery, but I have no will-power when it comes to not-peeking!
I am using the Weeks Dye Works floss as charted and the WDW confederate grey linen (35 count). This is going to give it a very antique feel to it. I am still waiting for a couple of flosses but they will appear with my next package.
Here is my floss toss
I could not resist doing a little bit of it, and will post a piccie soon.
I have done some other stitching this weekend as well, and as it was the third weekend in the month it was IHSW (International Hermit and Stitching Weekend). It is organised by Joyce at Random Ramblings, and over 30 people have joined this weekend.
I finished 5 Golden Rings (Nora Corbett - 12 days of Christmas) on Saturday and was so excited I dropped it in at the framer. Several hours later I realised I had missed an isolated bead - oops! I will call tomorrow as I am sure they haven't done anything yet and will drop in to fix my forgetful boo-boo. If it is too late it is very difficult to see where it should be.
It is very sparkly again!
I only have a couple of leaves to do on the tomato panel of Baroque Gardens - the tomatoes are all stitched. I will post a photo when it is finished - the over one takes time and does not grow very quickly.
Hope everyone has had a good stitching weekend (IHSW or otherwise) and I look forward to seeing what everyone has done
