picked my threads & now I will start stitching!
cry out for this palette:
(I've taken artistic license and renamed
the 'regular' DMC color names to better get be in the mood!!)
610 - cornhusk brown
3852 - zinnia yellow
you can see my linen in the pic above & below best...
I overdyed 28ct linen from Wichelt with a mixture of homemade black walnut dye,
coffee, tea, vanilla and spices...
I really like how mottled it came out,
and how the threads will stand out nicely against it.
I'll stitch with one thread over two, for an old, sparse look...
I have an antique frame all picked out too,
but I may just decide to paint one...
I dunno yet :)
the picture below
pretty much sums up how I have been feeling lately in this heat...
(I'm the one sitting)
she has received her Driver's Learner's Permit and is all smiles...
I have been doing my best to stay calm and positive while driving with her,
but I can's seem to inhale deeply enough to magically suck the sides of the car in to make it smaller and fit between things like poles, trees, cars and tunnels...
now you see why I feel like the woman above?
( I don't know about that dog, though...either it needs to be sheared along with their sheep,
off to stitch ~
I will show you my progress soon
...and in the meantime,
please do a raindance...we are in need of some!!!
Blessings from the Farm...
