25th January Project-Start

I have to apologize for the super super late post.  I know this post was due like 20 hours ago, but what can you do right?  Time slipped by today at record speed, and no complaints about it either!!!!!  Wow, what a great day :)


So without further hesitation, here is my start from last night.  It is from Goode Huswife- One Bluebird.  Very cute, minimal colors, as you can see.  I did add 1 darker shade of brown, because with the 40ct Vintage Pearled Barley I am using, the lightest shade of creme barely showed up-- and I tried and ripped out 3 colors.  So using the lightest shade of brown instead of creme, we had a winner!!  Of course, then I was 'missing' a color too.  No worries, problem was solved very quickly.


I have 3 sides of the border done, and it reminds me of my Great-Grandmother, Grandmother and Mothers tatted handkerchiefs, so delicate.  The colors are yummy (of course) and I look forward to finishing this one shortly (I hope!)

  3. Great start!! I passed up a lot of GHs when she was first designing, thinking they were boring colors. Now I realize my mistake--they are always SO pretty when stitched up! I can't wait to see yours.
