First Stitches for 2010 ~ Summer Iris

I put needle to thread yesterday, for the first time this year. I'm working on BBD Summer Iris.

BBD Summer Iris - started 3 January 2010

I already had it kitted and I'm stitching on the recommended WDW threads and 30ct Baby's Breath linen.


The thread colours are yummy looking and go so well with the fabric. They are: WDW Dove, Cappuccino, Rum Raisin, Fawn, and GA Grecian Gold.


This sweet design is just right for Summer stitching (sorry for those of you in the depths of Winter).


Thank you for visiting and please drop by again to see my progress!

Lovely choice and don't you just love the names of the overdyed threads - they seem to conjure up all sorts of wonderful things.

What a gorgeous little sampler! I love the colors, and I haven't seen this one before. I sometimes forget that you are in the heat of summer, lucky girl! What a perfect project for those lazy summer days.
Hugs!

Oh, I love this one, Jane! I have it and even ordered the floss (now where are the darn things?). I remembered seeing the colour Dove and really liked it!

I'm really liking what I see already! Hope your week back to work goes well.

Such a lovely new start. Seeing all the snow outside I particularly love the thought of summer that comes from it.

Don't you think our stitching should lift us out of doldrums of winter :-)? Love your new piece, the BBD ladies are favorites for me.

It's such a lovely start ! My first stitches for 2010 was "Snow Patch" of Shepherd's Bush and I'm completly addicted !!

It's a lovely new start, the colours are so delicate

Tammy said...

Great new start Jane-so soft and pretty! Congrats on all your finishes last year! I can't remember if I asked before, but how are you making your collage? Do you use a tempate or from scratch? Either way, I love that! Hopefully I'll be checking in more often!

Love your stitching; everything is so lovely!
