Today, Day III, I have chosen to work on a freebie design from Queenstown Sampler Designs.
I think Barbara gave this design out at the Loudoun Sampler Guild holiday luncheon in December 2009.
It's approximately 60 by 70 stitches. I've chosen a hand-dyed 28ct fabric whose color is peacock. The manufacturer is unknown. I picked this up last year on sale at Thistle Threads. I've chosen Silk n Colors "Granite" to stitch this with. I briefly thought of using different colors for the different motifs, but decided to go with one overdyed thread.
Here's my progress for the morning. Colors are a tiny bit washed out. Not exactly what this Granite State girl thinks of when she thinks of granite, but I like the color combo a lot.
