Here is my progress so far on the Shaker Sewing Box. Heck I can't even see it and I have it here infront of me. The outline is done with DMC Linen thread so there is no sheen to make it stand out against the fabric as well. I have to say I am a bit nervous about using this thread to hold the box together. Despite it being "linen" thread it doesn't seem very strong. They took a piece of it at the LNS store last night to have a look at it as they hadn't ordered any yet and it actually broke quite easily. I will just be hoping that its enough to hold this together since that is the thread that is called for in the design.
Not much else in stitching to report. I have been busy with alot of things so my evenings haven't been spent in my comfy chair stitching as I'd like. Hopefully we'll get back to that so I can get some of my bigger projects moving along.
I can see it, you've done a fair bit already. How long did it take you to complete Earthdancer? I have it in my stash I keep at my parents, but it's not started yet.ReplyDelete
