Bits of This, That and the Other

I have been remiss in welcoming and thanking my followers.  I really do appreciate that you take the time to read about my little corner of the world.

While blog reading, this caused immediate drooling caught my eye at the Bush Blog:

Hang a Shining Star from Sam Sarah Design Studio
Unknown Fabric and WDW fiber
I did a search and realized that I saw the release notice back in October.  It is charted to be stitched on WDW Morris Blue which seemed a bit bright at least to me for the piece

so I skimmed right over it.  It is amazing what a change in fabric can do for a piece.

Measi of Measi's Musings has decided to continue the WIPocalypse for 2013.  It's a fun, no stress SAL, so if you're interested click on over, sign ups should be open soon.  

On the stitching stand this week was:

Papillon Creations' Eightsome Reel
Stitched on 28-count Chai Tea Jobelan with a HDF conversion
I am so close to a finish on this, three rounds and a medallion, that I think I will keep it on the stand for the weekend rather than switch to the next piece in my rotation.  I'm not sure how much stitching time I will actually have, The Hubs is having major surgery on Monday, so I am prepping some pieces for finishing and kitting a small piece so that I have something to do in the waiting room and also for whatever time he's in the hospital. I don't imagine I will have too much time for stitching or finishing once he is home as he is the worst patient and will keep me running. And NO there will be no bell given to him for summoning purposes!!

Amazing isn't it, how important it is to choose the right fabric.

Eightsome Reel is wonderful. Love the colours and all the rounds and medallions.

Thanks for sharing.

Papillon Creations looks very pretty - when you work with silk, is HDF your preferd choice?

Giovanna said...

Gosh, what a difference fabric makes! I don't like it on the blue at all but loved the top version.

Keeping you and your hubby in thoughts and prayers for a speedy recovery for him and not driving you round the bend!!

The fabric makes this peice! I love the tan version better than the blue also! Hoping that your hubby heals quickly and you can get some stitching done :)
