During the summer, I finally received the piece of Vintage Autumn Gold that is recommended for Shores of Hawk Run Hollow. It was the third piece of fabric I bought for Shores. I was trying to be cheap thrifty, but things didn’t go according to plan. Now I’ve got a suitable color fabric. It’s quite beautiful, actually. Sometimes it’s cheaper to go the “expensive” route straight away, especially when you’re me, and you worry, fret and second-guess yourself to distraction. The white contrasts beautifully with this piece of linen, unlike the last piece (Silkweaver Golden Promise), which was too light. It’s perfect, I love it.
I’ve decided to focus on this piece on the weekends. . . and maybe the weekdays if I can’t resist–like this morning, when I began adding the first red stripe on the lighthouse. I’d indulged my need for stitching “labor” this weekend and stitched the rest over the long, 4-day weekend.
How much do I love that sun? The lighthouse? The rocks, even? How much do I love stitching with Needlepoint Silk? How very much do I love stithching on 40-ct fabric? Wowzers. So very much.
Until next time, dear ones. Happy stitching!
