Another project that I started on my Stitchmaynia day was this Theresa Baird Fractur Sewing Set II.
I didn't have the silks called for and I wasn't sure about stitching it on 40 count. I ordered the Belle Soie from Stitching Bits and Bobs. Since the pattern mentioned you could do this on 36 count fabric. I decided to try it. But since I didn't have the silks yet, I just used the DMC equivalents. What I found was I loved stitching this and it turned out way cuter than the picture on the pattern. I like working on the 36 count Edinburgh.
I love it! I still don't have the silks but I am very happy with the DMC. They are nice bright colors. I picked a small project to start, the Petite Needlebook. I got it all stitched and cut it out. I am in the process of finishing it.
The walking is done in spite of a little rain. The bathrooms are clean. As a special treat to myself for Labor Day, I am making walleye fingers! Yum.
