I'm stitching it on 40ct Vintage Antique Ivory by Silkweaver. As always I just adore Silkweaver fabric. It's always so perfectly soft and of course a 40ct has nice, tight holes!
I've decided to do the border with The Gentle Art 1110 Sable. I looked through a lot of different variegated threads I had on hand and in the end decided that I wanted something that wouldn't interfere with how colourful all the dragons are. So of course nothing is better than brown/black!
Here it is so far:
Teeny tiny stitches. I almost forgot how awesomely small 40ct over two is. I know it will turn out gorgeous so I'm sticking with it even after an hour of stitching and cursing tiny holes (lol).
The dragons themselves are DMC. I'm behind (SAL started in January) and it's unlikely I will catch up given how little time I can carve out to stitch while my shop is busy. But that's okay, because busy Etsy shop equals more money to buy stitching stuff!!
I know a few of you might be remembering that I have a new HAED to start for the year. I do have it, but haven't had a chance to purchase the fabric and missing DMC I need. Hopefully by months end!
I'm also planning to purchase Jeanette's Canada series for my birthday (in just over a week) so that's another new start.
Goodness I have a lot of starts and not much progress! That will get better I'm sure. :)
Thanks for stopping by and happy stitching!
