Thank you so much for all your comments to this piece so far. I am overwhelmed and really appreciate them. I know the picture is a little dark I should have waited a few hours to take the picture I think. I do think you might see the glisten of the material better though. I am almost half done. I have gone through over one skein of the floss so I did order some the other day. It won't be here for a couple of weeks so I'll have to lay it down next week when I run out of this floss. I'm just happy to have found the floss without having to pay $12.00 like the original place was going to charge me.
Some of us at ESC (Every Stitch Counts) are going to do Bethlehem which is a companion piece, as a SAL at Christmas Time. So I need to order the material and floss for that. This piece makes me want to use Specialty floss a lot of love the shades. I'm trying to decide if I want to do Bethlehem in lavender which I love or the blue which I also love. So I think I'll order more threads. I also found another piece I love that is a harvest piece I want to get and do up. That one I'll do in Burnt Orange Shades. I'm hoping to find the Opascent Material to do Bethlehem on. I think it would be so pretty.
Okay-Confession time! Forget the 25 challenge! I just ordered several patterns from 123 stitch. Some are for gifts but not all of them. I discovered I didn't have Bethlehem like I thought. But could I stop at Bethlehem, the material and the
Gentle Arts Thread for that. Of course NOT! I ordered about 5 or 6 other patterns and about 20 Skeins of Gentle Arts Thread! Well I'm not buying anything else for the rest of the year! And have to start all over with the 25 challenge, at least I wasn't very far!
Well so much on my future stitching. Actually when this is done I'm going back to the piece I started last year for my brother. I'm anxious to get more done on that.
