Plan B

Well, I'm still waiting for my latest stash order which has the next project I was going to do in it. I think I'll have to leave that one to another time now. So I'm having to resort to 'plan b'. I loved this chart when I got it so I may as well make a start on it. It's called Miss Snow Fairy by With Thy Needle & Thread.


By coincidence, Tina from Shepherd's Bush mentioned on their blog that she's going to stitch this one as well. So in my own mind I'm doing a SAL with her. How cool is that? I don't even care that she doesn't know about it. As long as I know, that's the main thing. :)


I'm just deciding whether to substitute the white thread with a more toned down version. I know it's supposed to be snow but it's quite bright. Here we go again - decisions, decisions!


Many thanks to all for your kind words on my Bug Ball finish. Thanks again to Loraine for joining me in a SAL. It really was fun to do. I also love finding various decorating items I have at home to place in the photos I take of my finishes too. It's like a mini challenge to pick something that goes with the stitched item I've just done. All part of the fun.

I'm also glad that you like my new Christmas theme blog. I did something similar last year, and it's nice to get you into the Christmas spirit. Since it's the start of December I thought I would change my music to some Chrissy songs too. Hope you enjoy them.

Oh Jane! Love this pattern, and I bought it right when it came out! Great choice. I don't have it kitted yet, but I can't wait to do it. Maybe I'll start it, and be a few weeks behind you!
I agree with your idea to substitute the white thread. I think Weeks, Whitewash would look a lot better. The white is pretty harsh.
Love the new look of the blog. Yes it really gets one in the Christmas mood!
Take Care dear friend. I'm excited to see you start this one.

What a lovely project to pick up to do next! I don't have this one in my stash, I think I need to remedy that as it's just so cute. Thanks for dropping by my blog and leaving a comment!

Jane, very much is pleasant to me your plan. It is even more interesting than colour of threads, than on a cover. I with impatience will wait for the following message. And your blog has a fine Christmas ornament!

Such a lovely chart, keep us posted on your progress. Love the baubles, we've just bought new ones but not as nice (DD likes taking them off the tree and playing with them, she's only 23mths old)
