Stitching progress.....

Hope all are having a great stitching month....

I finally decided to start the BBD
Garden Series from this month after
seeing Nicole's beautiful finish.

I started in the bottom right corner which
meant the last one would be the first.

BBD "All in A Row"
stitched on Silkweaver Clay Pebble
with recommended threads

This was a quick sweet stitch but I have
to admit I was a little disappointed
in the colorway of the hand dyed threads.

I know the variegation of the threads can
cause the stitched piece to vary from the
model and I wish I had now changed the
threads to better match by taste.  I will
definitely do that going forward.

After finishing up my monthly PS Alphabet series,
I decided to stitch another in the
Garden Series. I just love the colors in
this one.  I can tell this one will
be a fun one to complete.

Speaking of my PS Alphabet,  I have finished
my next installment and stitched
"F is for Friend".  This was a fun
stitch even with the solid blocks of color.

  5. Great stitching, Karen. I know what you mean about the variegated thread. It's quite an investment for us in the UK...the hand dyed threads are SO expensive here. Often, I order them online and am disappointed when they arrive!

  10. I have had a few projects where the thread didn't match the chart just because of variations in the thread, and I found it so frustrating. Your first block turned out lovely though.
