Or, Pray for Peaches, if my fingers have their way. I decided to go with Vintage Autumn Gold for Shores of Hawk Run Hollow. I’ll restart that when the fabric arrives. I got Picture This Plus’ new Sprite fabric for Missing You. It’s the slightest change, but I prefer it. We’ll see when I get around to restarting that one. I hope it works the way I envisioned it. I am having a terrible time with fabric this year, it seems. For Pray for Peace, I could only get a cream 36-ct. Of course, I wasn’t satisfied. Why would I be? I have a piece of 32-ct Sandpiper, which is what was used on the model. I ordered it in 36-ct. Naturally, when it arrived it was darker than my 32-ct and the model photo. After several floss-tosses, and asking my son’s opinion (Why? We never agree. Incredibly, this time we did.), I settled on PTP’s Mercedes. I love that color.
I miss the possibility of new Birds of a Feather designs. I didn’t love all of them, but I really love the ones I did. There’s a sophisticated understanding of color in many of their designs that I don’t possess. Take Pray for Peace, for example. The “white” on the flag and the dove are both stitched in Tin Roof. It works. I loved stitching with that color. It appears to have a greenish cast, but it looks silver in the flag (close-up), and while I was stitching the dove, I kept thinking it looked like crocheted metal.
