As much time as I've been having fun exploring new challenges in my sewing room, I found I was really missing the relaxation and enjoyment of cross stitching. I've had this pattern lingering in my stack for a long time and decided it was time to start it instead of just wishing it to life. Unfortunately just imagining it on my walls does not automatically put it there.
I'm using a 36 ct. linen from Lakeside Linens, but I cannot remember the color. The threads are a mix of Splendor Silks and Hand-dyed Fibers. The local stitch shop does not carry NPI and I already have a huge collection of both these threads, so I went ahead with those.
The blue-gray palette is actually my favorite so I love being able to work with so many different shades of silk. Of course working on Shores makes me want to collect all the CHS samplers for an HRH wall but then I know I'd be stitching until I was 300. Or, if I left myself become a permanent part of the couch I might be able to be done by 250. How bad is it that while we're working on one great project, we're thinking of all the other projects we'd like to be doing? I hope I'm not alone here.
Until next time...
