So… What do you think of my new theme? You have looked right? It needs some tweaking. The slider on the front page is too large, but I am using this to give me some ideas of what might work on the Needlework Boutique’s site. I will be starting the revamp of that site today.
My good friend Annemiek told me about an Instagram project #creativeeveryday. I love the idea, and have decided to participate. On Monday I started a new project. I wanted to finish off some projects, but I need to locate the thread for one (it kind of disappeared during the move last year), and really did not feel like doing a Halloween themed project. So as my studio is still in boxes (note to self – just do it!) I decided to start a new project.
One of my favourite designers is Stacy Nash Primitives. Although simple, the charts are a tad more complex than a band sampler as you really have to be careful with your counting. The chart I am stitching is the Blackwork Pinkeep.
I only got one thread of DMC 310 stitched on the hand dyed fabric that I collected many years ago from Silkweaver. It is a 32ct one of a kind colour that was just perfect for this design.
Sadly I did not get any stitching done last night, as I spent most of the day sorting through the mess that is my study, and then I took the kids out to dinner. Today is supposed to be another really hot one – more than 30C, so after spending some more time in the study this morning, I will be sitting down to stitch this afternoon.
