Stars #3

No photo, but last night, right before dinner, I stitched the corner block again with the new colors. I haven't looked at in the morning sunlight yet to see what I think. But there is a thought running through my head that I may not like stitching this with these colors.


Change colors now?


I'm certain it's just something having to do with spring and needing to flowers and brilliance and golden light.

I thought I had handled this on Saturday with a start on the Sekas and Co. Shamrock Heart. Even though I had this kitted up with the called for 10 ct. fabric, I dipped into my stash and decided I could stitch this on 18 ct. canvas. A little experimentation later and the Watercolours has changed to overdyed cotton. And the Kreinik braid has gone down a size.

But apparently a shamrock isn't enough. I guess I should go look at Stars and see what I think.

This is a huge piece, so you need to pick colors you love or you will not finish it. Keep experimenting. Do you have a favorite thread? Toss all the skeins of that brand on the table and start choosing your four favorites....

If you take the time to make a good color choice in the beginning, I think it'll pay off.

We're rooting for you!
