Week One Update: Let it Snow

Blizzard Warning for us fine folk here in Minnesota. Snow means stitching!

Palette Challenge:

I am just putting the finishing touches on my first palette challenge and hope to get pictures taken by the weekend.

I found swatches of fabric to match the palette I had created at colourlovers.com and then played around with some fabric painting using a method I had found in Cloth, Paper, Scissors using lace wrapped around a bottle of acrylic paint and rolling it over the fabric. I am really pleased with the results.

Stitching & Designing:

Snowbugz 2 and Kenny of the Little Snowballz line have both been released and I have put them up on the website. I just finished Tristain Fernfrond of the Fern Folk Series.  He is stitched over two threads on 28ct. African Daisy hand-dyed Jobelan from Wichelt Imports and uses all DMC flosses. 

I just readied Lucy of the Little Snowballz series for stitching. She should be a very quick stitch and I hope to use my "blizzard time" wisely and have her out soon
