I’m going to start another new project. It’s a chart that I bought last year when I fell in love with it on Etsy. I really must stay off there. There is so much crafty stuff to look at
I shouldn’t really have pulled this one out to start though. I have about two dozen kits or kitted-up charts in my To Be Stitched box, but none of them were calling to me loudly enough. This one was, but of course I didn’t have it kitted up. I borrowed some of the threads from other projects, and had some in my stash too, but I still had to order five of them. Plus the fabric. I had three that might have done, but wasn’t completely happy with any of them so ordered a different one to see what that looked like. Now, of course, I can’t decide which one to use. Sigh.
This is the design that I’ll be stitching. It’s an African sampler by Hanne’s Needlecraft.
Isn’t it fabulous?! It reminds me of Animal Kingdom and AK Lodge at Disney World. I think it’ll look brilliant on the wall alongside the prints of the Lodge that we brought back.
This is the choices of fabric, with the threads laid on them. It’s interesting how different the thread colours look on the different fabric colours.
Ice Blue – I like how intense the bright colours look on this, but worry that the grey shades will get lost.
Cream – I like that most of the colours will show up on this, but I’m not sure if the brights look as intense.
