Anna Millet, 1895 SAL with Carol R. #1 [Photo Edited]

Hi, thanks for your visit and thank you for your comment! I always appreciate for your words toward to my works, health, etc...

By the way, finally I can share some of my progress photos of Anna Millet, 1895 SAL with Carol R.. As for the SAL, I've shown my thread and fabric for it on the earlier post, but I have changed them...


Here is my new thread and fabric for Anna Millet, 1895. Belle Soie silk "Cranberry" on 40ct Wichelt (Sandstone / tea dyed).


Why I've changed the materials is... the linen I was stitching wasn't 40ct. I was thinking it was 40ct, but it was actually 36ct, so when I stitched with DMC, it looked very skimpy... I didn't want to undo, but decided to re-stitch on 40ct.
[Photo is Edited on 8th of Mar.]


It's quite taking time to stitch along with overdyed thread (silk is fantastic touch!!), though now I'm feeling to finish this beautifully.


Carol R. has stitched almost half way, but as she knows that I've been doing re-stitch, she is waiting for me to catch her up!
Thank you, Carol!  I'm going to work hard on this Anna Millet!

Thank you for your visit!
Take care and have a lovely weekend.

やっぱり変えられたのですね、布と糸の組み合わせ。
だいぶ進んでしまってからのやり直しは痛いですけれど、
お友達との特別なSALですもの、気分よく進めたいものですよね☆
ここからはスピードが上がって楽しめると良いですね。
私も夕べから急な思いつきでほぼ一色刺し(ほんのちょっとだけもう一色ありますが。)に近い小さなのを始めていますが、
段染め糸の色の変化が楽しくってあっという間に終わってしまいそうです。
一色刺しはやっぱり良いなぁ、と久しぶりに楽しんでいます。
よい日曜日を♪♪♪

ゆうさん♪
御無沙汰しています(*^_^*)
久しぶりにパソコンをつけたら、ゆうさん!!ぞくぞく、ステッチされていてワクワクしちゃいました!!
Sarah Spurrは、私も温め中…とってもすてきに完成されてうずうずしちゃいます。。。

そして、何より心ひかれたのがプレイリーのバースサンプラー!!
ほんま、見本写真、魅力出し切れてへんわ~!と思って、速攻チャートをオーダーしてしまいました(笑)
娘には別のものを考えていたけど…また、迷ってしまいます(・_・;)
でも、これなら、プレゼントにしても喜ばれそうですよね☆

姫路城も結婚前に夫とデートで行ったので懐かしくて…改修が終わったらまた、家族で行きたいな~。
その時は、お勧めの場所とか教えてくださいね(^_-)-☆(前回は姫路城しか知らず…、あんまり姫路を満喫できなかったので…)

再スタートされた、SALの続きも楽しみです(*^_^*)納得して刺すとやっぱり違いますものね(^_-)-☆
