Stitching: Bands Sampler Part 3

Getting Birthstone Dragons done and out of the way last week opened the door for me to work on another WIP. This weekend I worked on Lakeside Bands SAL. I really love this piece. I’m doing it on 40ct which is perhaps a hit overkill (36 or 32 would have been just as good). It uses DMC variegated floss that I continue to be very impressed with. 

Part 3 complete: 






Above: Part 2 & 3 together on my scroll rods. 

I love the autumn/fall tones of this set of variegated threads. I went with one of Lakesides thread packages as it was cheaper and I thought they did a great job of selecting our different colour palettes for folks. I think they had 5 or 6 variations on this one. And of course many decided to do their own picks of colour. 

I have no doubt that when you want a more affordable option than hand-dyed variegated threads that these DMC ones are a suitable substitute. Don’t get me wrong I’ll continue to love my hand-dyed looks but this is a fun piece to stitch and it’s been so interesting to use different materials than usual. 

Up Next: I gotta stop the hubby’s whining and work on some Alice. Lol. She’s been so poorly neglected since February. I’m not even sure why given that she’s close to a page finish!

Your progress on this WIP is super, Mel. I really like the look of the DMC threads you are using. I look forward to seeing Alice soon.
