I settled down to start on the Winter Whites by LHN. I am stitching it on 28 count Flax linen and started using the sampler threads oatmeal that was recommended to find that it seemed to be disappearing into the fabric colour AGHHHHHHH noooooo I was heard to mutter under my breath ...lol so I again raided my stash of threads and came out with a couple of alternatives and chose Vanilla Gloriana silk as what seemed to be the best of what I had got .....
So I stitched and stitched and mmmmmm'd n ahhh'd and I'm still not entirely happy that it is the right colour choice even now :( it still seems to disappear into the fabric colour too much .... I've tried to take some decent picture s but hasn't worked out very good either
But here is where I got up to ..... all comments much appreciated on this one as I think I am going to have to un stitch and start again .....
