Here's my Isabella Fox by Gigi R Designs. I ordered this piece from The Attic using their silk conversion. I loved putting in each and every stitch. I wished I were a better photographer. The colors are delightful. It was stitched on vintage sand dune.
I ordered a sample of the Attic's 50 count fabric and Gloriana Tudor Silk thread to see if I could stitch on such a small count fabric. I COULD !! I ordered some additional threads and quickly stitched up Dutch Strawberry by The Goode Huswife. I was pleasantly surprised that the fabric was really easy to stitch on. I tried different using needles but found the tapestry beading needle to be the only needle that worked. The other ones were like using a crochet hook to stitch with !! The Tudor silks are amazing. Here is the result of my adventure.
Here are a few more finishes. Needleworker, May Basket, and Softly Walk.
Needleworker is stitched 1 over 1 on Glenshee linen. I love this piece.
May Basket was stitched using the Shepherd Bush girls color selection. This was stitched for my granddaughter Carly who celebrates a May birthday.
Softly Walk is by La-D-Da stitched with the called for threads on Vintage Pear from Lakeside Linen.
I have been knitting some...only because I love yarn and have the A/C turned down to 75 so I'll show you those pieces in my next post. I'm also going to The Attic in November for classes and have been doing some pre-stitching for a class. I'll save that story for next time. Thanks for stopping by and sharing my love of needlework.
