Thanks to Tanya and Natalie, I was happily stitching Sarah Woodham last night. My progress is not picture worthy so I will save that for another day, but I was so glad to be able to start it. I have been "obsessing" over it for a few weeks now. LOL!
I also appreciate Margaret being willing to help, and the kind comments from Lainey, Jackie, Cari, and Carol. ALL of you are the sweetest. :)
I was feeling the gratitude today... just wanted you to know. :)
The silk threads for this are just beautiful. This sampler would not have caught my eye had I not seen it being stitched on blogs, completed and in process.
I am a little concerned, however, about stitching with the Belle Soie Sister Scarlet. I have had that thread to lightly bleed on my fabric when stitching with it before. I would hate to put all this time, money, and effort into this and that happen. I am not sure what to do, if anything, about it. Do any of you ever run your threads through cold water first? I am wondering how this affects the color and luster, or if that would even be a recommended practice for silk?
I am looking so forward to my stitching time with Sarah again tonight. But in order to make that happen, there are chores to be done. :)
Have a great evening!
