I have started on the outer border so not far to go!
I have also had another start.... Opps!
28 count Ivory evenweave
This is another Chatelaine Design called Pompeji, I'm loving the colours so far!
I have also had these Teresa Wentzler charts for a long time, so I finally purchased some fabric to start them
Magical Night will be stitched on 28 count Ice Blue evenweave and Carousel I have 28 count Grey evenweave. Never ever again will I do a Teresa Wentzler piece on 32 count linen, I value my sanity lol.
I have also brought New York by Thea Gouverneur. Now this has 18 count aida in the kit and I will not be using that, mostly because I don't like aida much so I think I will get some evenweave 28 count. It is stitched with one strand and I am considering using 2 strands. Obviously there won't be enough thread in the kit so I will have to match up from my DMC threads . Has anyone used 2 strands? How does it look?
So all up I have a few things to get on with and the stash grows bigger and bigger!
I am rather remiss in my postings but anyway here I am again.
I actually have finished 2 cross stitches!!!
The first is Afternoon in Provence
The second finish is the Eiffel Tower bookmark which I still have to make up
Lake Como mandala is coming along nicely, I am on the second villa and hopefully I can finish that soon. I usually only work on this at weekends hence it takes me a while to do.
Unfortunately you can't see the sparklies in the fabric which makes it look really nice.
I am trying really really hard to finish some WIP and we all know sometime you just lose the mojo to finish a particular WIP that you have been doing for years, I know I have quite a few of those! I don't really have a rotation, I just stitch what I feel like doing but sometime I have an urge to dig out some old ones and put a few more stitches in.
It is coming into winter here so that usually means more stitching time!
