Greetings, all! WIP 11 is something I've been working on for quite a while--although it's seen the inside of the project bag way more than it should, and I really need to get back to it. This is Reflets de Soie's "Sous le Soleil de la Lune," and I can't think why I haven't worked more on it (other than the parade of WIPs you've already seen). I'm stitching it on Lakeside Maritime White 40 count, using a combination of the recommended silks--it's charted for Gloriana, or alternatively, AVAS, and also DMC. I'm using mostly AVAS because frankly, I find the Gloriana a tad pricey, but I am using a few of the Glorianas that don't have a true conversion--very variegated threads like Gloriana's "Flowers of Italy," shown here.
Here's a shot of the chart cover.
You may remember that I remarked that one of the reasons I enjoyed stitching on Lois Minshall is because it was simple cross stitch without anything fancy or any over-one. Well, I was wrong--not the first time in my life, either! See the little over-one rosebud? Seems there are a number of such elements throughout the design. Oh well--I love her anyway.
What Pink heard (and hasn't shared with the other bunnies). I'm headed to the Cape again this week, so today the bunnies are going to the bunny spa to spend the week.
Pink: "Hello Muddah. Hello Faddah. We will go to. Camp Grenada."
Normally BF would keep them, but he has a blown-out knee, and the bunnies completely took advantage of him on my last trip: doot spraying, bowl flinging, and a bunny breakout or two.
See you tomorrow with another WIP!
