The Rain Fell – WIP update

Yes, I am uploading a stitching picture. YAY!
First I want to thank Diane Williams for her wonderful designs. I sit down with them and I just can’t stop stitching. This one is a special favorite though. I just don’t want to stop stitching it. So here is how it is as of today. I am about to sit down and stitch a little more though 🙂

The Rain Fell
The Rain Fell – Little House Needleworks
Threads & Fabric – recommended

I have done all of the black on top but it is on my q-snap so I didn’t want to take it out. Next time I will show you the whole thing 🙂 I have decided to go with the Light Mocha Belfast for Little House Neighborhood. Thanks to everyone who helped me to make up my mind! It really helped a lot! I have been playing with the threads and fabrics a lot and I am pretty sure that this project will look amazing on the Light Mocha.

Karítas is feeling better and better. I will keep her home tomorrow though, and then she might be ready to go to play school. I have to go to work tomorrow though, so my great wonderful best cousin Bjarki is staying home with her. She adores him and he adores her, so they should have tons of fun! I have next week off from work (summer vacation) so I hope the weather will be nice since me and Bjarki are thinking about going camping with my daughters.

Floss toss!

I need your help. I have ordered the amazing new chart from Little House Needleworks called Little House Neighborhood. I just love it, I can’t wait to stitch it. I plan on stitching it as charted, but I might make some minor changes with the floss. Swap out a DMC for a pretty hand dyed one for one of the houses, or for the leaves on the trees etc.

Little House Neighborhood

Today I pulled out some fabric that I have on hand and that I think I would like to use for this project. The thing is, I like them all and can’t pick one out! So that’s where you come in. What do you think would look best?

Nr.1 – 36ct Raw Linen

Fabric #1 for Little House Neighborhood

Nr.2 – 32ct unmarked Belfast from my stash. The color is silve/gray, very pretty.

Fabric #2 for Little House Neighborhood

Nr.3 -32ct Light Mocha Belfast

Fabric #3 for Little House Neighborhood

Nr.4 – 36ct Linen ‘Days Gone By’ from Silkweavers

Fabric #4 for Little House Neighborhood

I think my favorites as of now are the ones #1 and #4 but honestly, I like them all and I am very confused as to what to pick! So, HELP! Please tell me what you think would look best.
