I was looking through my stash today to try to find my next project. A difficult task it was since I have too many things to choose from. :) I could have picked half a dozen things, but I either didn't have fabric ready for it or threads not on hand. Since I didn't want to waste too much more time in selecting something, I have chosen to do another LHN All Dolled Up series called Strawberry House. I had the fabric ready, Crescent Colours threads there, and all I needed to do was to pick out the DMC threads from my stash.
LHN - Strawberry House kitted
I'm going with their selection of fabric which is a 30ct Creek Bed Brown. It's a natural colour with some warmth to it. I have stitched with this fabric before and quite like the colour. All threads are what's called for except one. The DMC 3823 which is supposed to be a light yellow, I have substituted for 712 being a pale cream. I didn't have the 3823 on hand and the picture on the chart looks more like a cream than a yellow, so I went for that look. It picks up the colour of the rosebud button on the house, so I thought it would balance it out.
It's Fathers Day here tomorrow, so I'll be visiting my beloved Dad. He's such a wonderful man, very loving, and would help me whenever I needed it. Growing up, I've felt very protected by him. It's nice to say thanks to him in a formal way for being my father.
Since I'll be out for most of tomorrow, I'm not sure when I'll start this next project. Hopefully in the next few days anyway. I'll be sure to let you know when I do. :)
I also wanted to show you the new leaves on my Maple tree that's in my front garden. It's Spring here now (though the weather can sometimes still be a little chilly) and the plants are starting to put on new growth. It's lovely to see things come alive again after the Winter and seeing a little more sun during the day. Our days are starting to get longer and daylight savings will be around again by the end of next month. I love it! More light at night time means I feel more in the mood for stitching. Bring it on!!
