I don't think I have to tell you I LOVE stitcheries ? :-)
I have had a needle in my hand since I was 6 years old, and I am still enjoying it as much as ever.
Cross stitches have moved over for stitcheries, but I still get that lovely feeling of flow when I sit down with embroidery floss and needle.
I am doing this Gail Pan stitchery, Busy Little Christmas Elves, as a BOM for myself this year, just for fun.
This morning I draw all the stitcheries on fabric. and I am soon very ready to start.
I have been discussing with myself which colours to use, and I have been changing my mind a lot of times between Japanese taupe and blue, or Japanese taupe and red.
I have now landed on deep red stitcheries - DMC 498 - and taupe and red for the fabrics - and I will NOT change my mind again ;-)
This is my inspiration.
