I can’t believe that in the first month of the year I have three finishes. I guess it helps that they are small projects! Anyway, here are my two latest finishes:
The first is Gourmet Garden by Little House Needleworks. I finished this piece on January 16th. It is stitched on 32 count Golden Honey from Silkweaver. I stitched it using all the recommended DMC floss.
And here is Alphabet Rhyme, also by Little House Needleworks. I stitched it on 28 count Earthen Lugana by Picture This Plus. I made some color changes on this one. I stitched the girl’s dress in Lilac by Weeks Dye Works, the berries in Ultraviolet from Carrie’s Creation Threads and the book and vine border in Brown Sugar from Crescent Colors. I really like how it turned out. I think the colors are more appealing to me than what was originally called for in the pattern.
I really love the Earthen fabric. It’s a nice neutral color and great for a lot of the Little House designs. And if you haven’t already guessed, Diane Williams is one of my most favorite designers. It seems that over the past two years she has really stepped up in designing and they get better and better. I can't wait to see what she has in store for us this year!
