And the floss rolls merrily along… May 22, 2006

Posted by juliael in Cross Stitch.

Hi, I'm Julia aka hildy on LJ. Since Katie started us off, I figured I'd add my introduction.

I'll be doing cross-stitch for BGAL. I've already pulled together two projects for this adventure, one reasonable project and one Dear-God-what-was-I-thinking? type project.

The reasonable project is a bookmark pattern called "Celestial" I came across while looking through my stash. The chart is from a Bookmarks leaflet from American School of Needlework.

The less reasonable one is a Mirabilia beauty called "Rose of Sharon". The lady is in a golden dress with pale blue accents. I hope it's enough blue to satisfy the requirements. I have the fabric, but I don't quite have all the floss colors yet. But there are no beads or metallics, so it should stitch up fairly easily.

I'm heading off to MediaWest*Con on Thursday, so I will probably start the bookmark early, unless some other project entices me first. Such are the dangerous ways of the floss…
