Have had a couple of Long Dog Sampler pieces on my "I want to do" list for some time. Anita brought Mouline Rouge back from market for me. This is a BIG piece. The design size is 364x364. On 28-ct fabric the design size is 26x26. Just itching to stitch this. And of course I want to use Belle Soie. Oh such a fiber snob that I am. Right now I am looking at Elegant Eggplant for the floss color and the new Shale from Picture This Plus in 28-ct. Tried to find something in 30-ct, but so far have not found anything that I like. Not to fond of going to a smaller count. It is more difficult to see when I am not at home with my Daylight magnifier.
Since I have been in such an itch to stitch this new Long Dog, I decided to take a piece of mystery fabric (I think it is Lambswool linen) and a new color from WDW to stitch a motif out of the design. Here is the end result. The WDW color is Stepping Stones. It is sort of purplish with some gray in it. Hard to see in this picture.
One of the gals in my STO Yahoo group was doing some downsizing of her stash and I relieved her of 3 pieces of fabric. Did not take a picture. I got 28-ct R&R Irish Creme, Silkweaver 28-ct Days Gone By and Sandcastle. Have never had any Silkweaver fabric before. Am anxious to find something to use it on. Yeah, another project to start.
Hope this makes sense, because I have been interrupted a couple of times. Morris came down to tell me that there was a coyote in our back yard. Then had to call the neighbor since it went their direction and they sometimes have a little Boston Terrier outside. Also talked to another neighbor and ate lunch before I came back to finish this up.
My stitching friends will be so thrilled when they log on tomorrow morning to see that I have done a post to my blog. They bug me all the time about adding to my blog. Little do they know that I would rather be stitching than taking photos and fighting with blogger to post something. Actually the last couple of times I have had good luck with blogger. (KNOCK ON WOOD).
Thanks for all your visits and comments. They are all appreciated. I am going to try to do better and now wait 2 weeks between posts. The key word is "try". LOL!!!
Happy stitching to all!!!!!
