Stitcher’s Sampler – 2nd Update

I haven’t been able to work on this project much, which is a shame as I love the design, but other projects must take precedence. It is especially the wedding project which is taking me away from this design, after all it has a deadline, a quickly approaching deadline.

Keeping that in mind I’ll show you the little progress I have made. Most of the border is done and since the first update I also finished the hearts in the inner most box. This project has not turned out as I had imagined, when I first got the chart from Rosemary I started planning the colours etc., but when I got my hand dyed floss from Polstitches I knew I had to included it. Then I won a giveaway with some other hand dyed cottons (Pomme de Pin) and knew I had to included them too. All of a sudden the sampler became not just a celebration of stitching, but also of colour.

So here is where I’m up to.

A closer look at the border colours.

The hearts in the inner box are stitched in Polstitches Dragonfloss – Seawitch and a bright yellow cotton, the inner border is stitched in Pomme de Pin Pimprenelle and the lighter outer border is Pomme de Pin Evanescence. I’m seriously loving hand dyes!

    it’s taking shape nicely and now that you’ve stitched outlines, it’ll be easy to fill in. Glad to see you’re using the Pomme de pin threads – Evanescence looks lovely and shimmering – and yep, you’ll find once you statrt with hand-dyes threads, you don’t want to stop. My favourites are PdeP and Threadworx but there are so many others out there, it’s difficicult to choose.

      Thanks Claire:) Haven’t tried Treadworx yet, but I’m planning to picksome upon the future along with some other hand dyes. It’s an addiction 😉
