{ Changed my Mind...again.....}

Hi friends....
have you ever begun a sampler,...
after having spent considerable time picking out threads & linen colors...
stitching on a very small count...
only to find that your threads aren't showing up as you'd like them to?


yes, I've been stitching on my
"Plump Wife"
but my stitches were fading into the background
of the Parchment colored linen...
I decided to try this: (see pics above) is Week's Dye Works Overdyed Linen in Chestnut (30ct)

I am stitching this one-over-one
...with Gentle Arts Sampler Threads
and like the results...
ast least the colors of the GA/ST are showing up
on the darker background!!

I'll be here in the shop today,
...working between pulling weeds from the shop garden
and on this sampler!

Hoping you all have a lovely Easter Weekend!!

Blessings from the Farm,Lori
