I decided to take pictures of my WIPS. I had not taken any since i started, and this will give me an idea of how much I had...and of how much more I need to do. I am loving the look of those bamboo's. I decided not to use my own hand dyed flosses because I encountered weeks dye works website and they have so much color selection it's foolproof! They also have a really nice catalog-like thing of their whole collection. It took me days to finally decide which ones are closest to the dmc's the design called for...I had so much fun choosing, i thought i was in a candy shop. =D
The calligraphy is yet to be frogged, I am trying to work my way down as I am loving the tension the SMF fabric is giving me. It is by the way stitched on SMF's Putty lugana. I love how it gives the design this old look.
My second WIP is PR's Fairy Celebration, this one is being stitched using WDW thread as well, it's called spring bouquet, and i love how the color variation is giving the fairy sort of an enchanting aura. This one is stitched on SMF Gnome cashel. I knew when i received the fabby from one of Mindy's "random" choice sale on ebay, it was going to be perfect for the fairy, and I just love how it looks. I haven't gone very far yet as I am struggling with the hoop, not even my smallest scrolls will hold the fabric horizontally, so i ended up using a hoop.
I am happy with the results I am getting. It's my first time using SMF fabbies & stitching with variagated threads and I am so loving the experience. =D
