There are still a few things to do, but it's almost there. I had the old look for a long time - it was time for a change!
I'm glad you like the 'additional cat hair' bit - Lulu, being extra fluffy and medium haired, is particularly generous in providing black fur to include in my stitching. It's a nightmare stitching anything white, especially as nine times out of ten she's on my lap!
I've been stitching white this week - working on my Sampler Stocking. I'll share a photo of that in a day or so. Today it's the turn of Shores.
I've been happily stitching on block 2 but have a wee problem with the DMC conversions. The conversions on the block 2 page aren't all the same as those on the page with the master list. I've been using the master list conversions, but am going to have to re-think the fish. As you can see, the second colour is far too close, and darker than, the first colour. Out it needs to come.
I've also been admiring sampler walls on people's blogs. It got me wanting to stitch more samplers, so here's another new start - Green Tree by Carriage House Samplings (it's a complete coincidence all my latest starts are by CHS!)
It's on 36ct Haystack from Countrystitch - I'd forgotten how lovely their fabrics are to use.
I have my eye on a few more starts too - I seem to be making up for lack of starts last year!
P.S. If anyone has a sampler wall, or can point me in the direction of someone with one, leave a comment. I'm still looking for more inspiration!
