Color...Color...Color

 Could a Monday morning get any better than this??


I'll be working on Sadie for my daughter Chauntel.  


I stitched Shepherd's Bush stockings for my granddaughters Corinne, Taylor and Carly years ago.  Now is the time to stitch for my children.

What fabric are you using? Sadie is beautiful--I can't wait to see it stitched up. And no, Monday morning doesn't get better than a big fistful of colors and a little time to stitch with them!

Oh those colors! Gorgeous! I love SB stockings!!

I don't think that a morning could get better than that. Just love, love all those fibers and the pattern is the cutest. That is one of my favorite stockings. Which reminds me - I did two for my kids years ago and they're not sewn together yet. UGH! And DS goes to college in the fall. Perhaps I should work on that! LOL

I can't wait to see your start! I am hoping to start Sadie too...for myself. Are you using the 18 ct.?

Siobhan said...

Ahhh! I love it. I need to stitch at least 4 more SB stockings--I just hate using perle cotton and 18 ct linen! The result is worth it, though. Sadie is GORGEOUS!

I caved and bought this pattern and fabric at the SB retreat. Seeing all that gorgeous color is sooo motivating! I've got to get that stuff soon. It is going to be gorgeous!

New starts are always so exciting! Love what you've chosen. The pile of thread looks delicious!

Those fibers are gorgeous! Can't wait to see your finish. I did them for Matt and Ty but not me and Rob. I need to do that.....

Another lovely choice. I do love the SB stockings and must do a couple more this year.
