First, a big thank you to Cathy at CraftyCat for talking me down off the Bloglovin' ledge.
I got my Bloglovin' button to work. WooHoo!!
I finished my Chessie and Me Grande Olde Flag Sampler.
The original thread used was Belle Soie and Gloriana Silks.
I used mostly Weeks over dyed thread in place.
I was just as happy with the results.
I had all the thread on hand.
Like I said in a previous post, I did it on 40 count over two linen.
I wanted it to fit in a 5x7 frame. I thought I had one on hand.
I couldn't find one in my box o'frames.
I have a Walmart one later this week. I'll pick up one then.
The crows, cat, urn and letters are all done over one thread.
Talking about challenging the old eyes but, it worked. In these instances, I did just half an "x".
Had I done a full "x", I think it would have been too bulky.
Very busy week coming up. I can't believe how the summer is flying by. I just moved all the June receipts from the folder to a envelop to be filed. It never ceases to amaze me how fast a month shoots by.
Have a great week. Thanks for the great comments and stopping by today.
Keep on Stitching
