Back to stitching...
Now rested after my epic night out with Han seeing James Blunt :) A different story for Han though... even though we had seats in the venue Han has really suffered with her back, she has literally been in bed since coming back. I hope with the rest she is having she feels a little better soon.
I have been stitching...
One of the designs from the Travelling Treasure Chest as I just could not wait... it was calling me to stitch it!
On the design its blue... yes its lovely in blue but does not match anything I have. So I changed the colour.. OMG!! Who would of thought it would of been so hard?! The design only calls for 3 colours and well I found it really difficult to 'find' 3 in my stash!
First I tried the DMC colours I had...
could not make my mind up..even with help from my facebook stitching friends!
So then got the Anchor colours out I had...
Settled on these but then as I stitched realized that the darker colour was not dark enough... so guess what... I changed it! lol
Here is what I have done...
I think I am much happier with my colour choices now.
Its this design.. a little closer so you can see..
I will post more as I go :)
Remember this lovely design I found in one of my magazines..
I really love it... but for now its on hold. I looked at my threads and well I have too many missing to stitch it.. so I tried to change the colours... OMG!! This is so much harder than you think.
So for now... I am lets say ...thinking about it! lol
Do you know what?
Its the 1st December tomorrow... shocking!!
I am so organized... NOT!!
I have no presents sorted, oh our tree.... yes we have a tree, its rather unique this year.. will post a photo soon :)
I hope your all well...
