This is Plum Street's "Love Notes" that I stitched over the past few days. I finished it last night. I have a framed ordered for it & it should be here next week. I left off the top & bottom border and of course I changed all the colors! It's stitched on Sand Belfast using GAST Rustic Cottage, Blue Spruce, Berry Cobbler & white DMC. The frame is by Eastside & I think it matches perfectly, can't wait to get it here! :-)
Tomorrow is the big starting day for Quaker Virtures... in the meantime, I hope to stitch on an ornament for Carol in the exchagne group I'm in!
Thanks for stopping by & happy stitching!
*** To answer Craft-i-Leigh's question about fabrics - I think most stitcher's have their own preferences when it comes to fabrics. I like 32, 36 & 40 cts best and I use mostly Belfast, Edinboro & Newcastle which are all Zweigart fabrics. I also like the Graziano fabrics from Italy, they're wonderful. Vonna recently urged me to try 25 ct Lugana over 1, and I have found that I really like it as well, esp. the Vintage Country Mocha, it's a lovely shade. I encourage you to try stitching over 2 as well. Maybe start with a Jobelan or Lugana evenweave. I personally prefer linens over evenweaves, but that's just me! Hope this helps with your learning & I'm sure there are others who are more than happy to answer your questions!
