Two New Finishes
My first finish in June is Sweet Land of Liberty by Cherished Stitches. I stitched it on 32 count Earthen from Picture This Plus. I used Ox Blood, Zaffre Cobalt and BeGuilted silk floss from HDF. This project stitched up rather quickly and I was very happy with the results. I completely changed the floss and the fabric is a lovely sandy brown. I really love the Zaffre Cobalt (Blue) on this piece. It’s a rich, velvety blue. I think this is my favorite Blue I’ve ever stitched with.
My second finish of the month is Southern Stars from Dinky Dyes. I stitched it on 28 count Bright White Lugana with Yallingup and Saltbush silk floss from Dinky Dyes. The pattern and floss was a gift from my dear friend Maxine. Thanks Maxine for this beautiful gift!
