I am really enjoying working on this piece and have completed approximately three/fifths of the outer ring. The colors of the Caron Wildflowers Periwinkle complement the Silkweaver Starburst overdyed linen so well that the piece is a treat to the senses. I am, of course, comfirmed in my love of Caron fibers. The Wildflowers [an overdyed cotton floss] lays so smoothly and just feels so silky that I find myself lightly stroking the finished stitching. I have a Secret Sister to thank for this chart and the Caron floss to stitch it ... and, though I have withdrawn from the 123stitch Secret Sister Exchange, I shall remember my 2008 participation with great fondness.
At lunchtime today, I did a bit more work on the Poisson du Avril biscornu ... yes, yes, I know I stated in my last post that I would be stitching on the Holly and Hearts Sampler during lunch hours ... but I am just going with the flow while I recover my stitching mojo ... I had both pieces in my stitching bag ... and the biscornu just called to me ... probably because I am much closer to finishing it.
In any case, I should be ready to take some photos in a day or two ... this blog could certainly use a few visuals ... it has been over a month and a half since I have posted photos of new work.
