I'm happy to say I've got quite a bit of Halloween Red done. I also received the exclusive chart I talked about in my last post. Tilton is also having a great sale if you're part of their Facebook group. Buy 2 get 2 free. So I'll have more stash after I decide which ones I want. After that no more buying! Also in the next post I should have a finish. I'd be further along now but I've been working more on my chair. I should have that finished on Sunday hopefully. So next post will be very informative!
But for now I'm proud of my progress on Halloween Red. Especially when I look at the pictures from last week.
I have to say I'm loving this one so far. It's turning out really well. My new chart is titled Christmas Quilt.
I thought it looked more like stained glass so I think I'm going to make a few changes to make it that way. It's hard to see in the pic but I will take out some of the colors that make it look like stitching and add a thick black border around each object using backstitch. Still debating this as it will require quite a few changes but I love the look of stained glass and I think this will lend itself well. However out of my 4 new charts I'll be getting, 2 of them are Christmas/Winter themed which gives me 4 Christmas projects. But I'm going to be focusing most on Magical World. I'm going to dye the Christmas Quilt fabric a mottled red and Santa's Workshop a mottled dark green. I was debating dark blue but it already has a lot of blue and due to a happy accident where I got lost I found my way to a Joann's and got some red and green Dylon dye.
On a more serious note my family is currently funding an operation for my niece who has shaken baby syndrome and who is starting to lose her vision in one eye. I'm putting her funding page on my sidebar if you can help great if not I understand. But if you can help put the word out I would be grateful. Thanks!
Until next time,
