Greetings pals. Was the weekend good? Hope so. But it's over now and the last week of June is upon us. Damn. Damn damn. Slow down!
I haven't been browsing Pinterest as often as before but while sitting on the swing enjoying a breeze, I did. Came across this free design from The Nebby Needle back in 2014. Another small I think I would like to stitch, but where do I put it?
When I was playing with dye and trying to get a dark gray blue, this piece took the color so far and then quit. It's not as dark as the Fox fabric and is a long thin cut. I thought of it as soon as I saw this chart. That doesn't mean it's a good choice and I won't know until the floss is worked in. Will I ever get that far? There are decisions! America in white, border in red, God Bless in gold? Three color choices with many options for placement. Maybe it would look best on light tan.
Speaking of the blue Fox (notice how sometimes it's capitalized and others not - just messing with you), I have not heard from the winner. Probably busy with weekend fun so we'll give her a few more days.
My decision to follow the chart and not the photo on this sampler was a good one. I don't mind all black pieces but that 3011 neutral really spares the monotony. Doesn't this look good with it in the dividing bands instead of all black?
This chart will be passed on to someone interested as soon as I am finished.
That's it folks. Getting dark out here with hungry mosquitoes.
Thanks for visiting.
