I have flitted from project to project lately, starting a lot but not finishing anything. I have finally settled on Lizzie Kate's A Little Liberty, in honor of the upcoming 4th of July holiday. I am stitching it on 28 count Lambswool Jobelan instead of the linen included in the kit, and with DMC instead of the recommended overdyed threads. I am going to try my hand at a cube finish for this one.
I have a dream and a vision of having the Pottery Barn Cubby like in Diane's post here filled with cubes of all different designs.
A few weeks ago I received my Nora Corbett Faerie Summer Love back from Jill Rensel. Stunning! It was $263 including shipping.
I also decided to give the DMC Stitchbows a try for DMC. I really like them! Very easy to put them on the Stitchbows and you just slip the numbered label on a tab. Everything is kept nice and neat. In some reviews I read online people said they did not like them because you could not store leftover floss like you can on bobbins, but I just wound the leftovers around the Stitchbow and smoothed it down. It worked for me.
Until next time...
