... why I've seen so many people out there in blogland stitching this pattern!
With the summer-like temps we've been having this past week, everything in my garden has really been sprouting out. For that reason, I thought this was the perfect pattern to pick up and take my needle and thread to. This is my first time stitching with Belle Soie Silks by Crescent Colours, so I was excited about that too!
I've been working on it a couple of nights now...the colours are so scrumptious, and the silk floss is just heavenly to work with! At first I wasn't sure about the coverage with just one strand of floss on the 32 count linen, but after stitching for a bit, I found that it really does work with the delicacy of this pattern.
|It's hard to capture the true colour of this fabric. It is called "Chestnut" and definitely more brown than it shows here.|
This has been a really fun stitch so far... I will be sure to keep you up to date on my progress.
Many thanks for stopping by!
