|The discarded 32 ct fabric|
|Replaced by this lighter 28ct linen|
At least I haven't wasted too much time on the dark green fabric, only an hour or two. I know what my next waiting room task will be: frogging the 32ct fabric. Aside from Christmas ornaments or a sunflower sampler, I can'r think of many ways to use this color linen. But I expect I will find some other use for it that will involve stitching over two threads with one strand of silk floss. Silk tends to have more of a loft than DMC cotton so one strand of a Belle Soie is thicker than one strand of DMC but thinner than two strands and ought to work well on this fabric. As I said, I have very few ideas as to what sort of project would work on that deep green color [see the first photo]. So, I invite my readers to make suggestions. If I use a suggestion, I will send the reader who offered it a small gift of some of my favorite green flosses from Thread Gatherer or GAST or WDW.
