SoCal Stitchers 2013 SAL, 3/20/2013
For the record, I have changed my SAL “rules” to whatever I am stitching…lol, instead of a large ongoing project. It keeps me stitching and that’s the point :-)
OK, so on Friday I started this piece and I simply couldn’t stop. I love it!
It was stitched on Prairie Cloth (made by Moda) which seems to be 26 count. I have seen it described like this, ” It’s a wonderful, slightly coarse cloth that looks like linen and runs about half the price. It is 100% cotton and comes in many colors.” I would add that it has a fuller body to the fabric than linen and is softer to work with. I have never stitched on linen or evenweave, so trying this was totally out of my box. SO glad I stepped out! It was a fun stitch, I love the results and I love the fabric!
This piece is Ye Olde Woolery Shoppe and it designed by Plum Street Samplers
I did change a few things, almost all of the colors used were a change. I left the little bell hanging from the sheep’s neck off (I just see that and think cow, not sheep, LOL) and I added the “ED” to “establish”.
