Working on black

I work with black fabrics allot, many of my projects are worked on black or coloured fabrics, I very rarely use white unless I'm doing a small project as I find white very harsh on the eye's especially if it is a project to be worked on for hours at a time, so I use coloured ones, but I have a tip for anyone working on black or dark colours is to place a white towel on your lap as you stitch, it makes the holes allot easier to see and so stitching is easier with fewer mistakes :)

English Rose

Hi Everyone :) I was looking at my English Rose chart and there are 16 pages!!

OMG! 16 pages to this project

and here is what EACH page looks like

So I think English Rose is going to be a long project, what I plan to do is take breaks from it every so often and do some smaller and faster projects like these,

Tailwaggers only take a couple of weeks and are fun to do and I also have

popcorn from one of my magazines to do and also

this cute fat cat :) I cant even remember where this came from but was probably a freebee from one of my magazines. 

So just to let you know, English Rose will be an ongoing project ;)

Delivery day

Hi all :) Today was delivery  day..the day the postman brought my English Rose chart that I ordered. I cant wait to get started on this project, I just love these colors, I will have to check my stash to see what "extra" colors are needed, I have every color DMC have made including all the metallics that I haven't had the pleasure in using yet but with this project I think a few extra reds will be needed...  

My Stash drawer ;) 5 box's of DMC threads

happy stitching :)

Winter Cat Update 2

Hi all :) This is winter cat today 1st sep, its coming along and I'm now in a hurry to finish it so I can start my next project.. English Rose :) I don't like having more than one project on the go at any one time... I like to finish one before I start another, I find the change from one chart and colors to another too confusing..so onwards with my winter cat :) Happy Sunday to all who visit.

happy stitching :)
