A New Start


I have started Freelove Hazard. She is a sweet little stitch. I am using DMC flosses on a 25 count Lugana Linen. I had the fabric in an antique white, but wanted it to look older so I tried tea dyeing. I like how blotchy it turned out and like the tan color. I rinsed and rinsed it, so I think the color will hold.

Happy Stitching All,

A great choice Cheri. Freelove is so charming both in her deign and name.

Little stitch? I don't care how little we think they are, the time involved is still many hours. I don't ever remember seeing this sampler before. Great choice.

Love it, Cheri! This is such a sweet sampler. And you did a great job dying your linen ... looks perfectly "aged"!

Cheri, I love the way the colors are looking on your fabric. You did a wonderful job on dying it.
