Part 8 of "Tree Of Stitches" is Done.

"Tree of Stitches" Part 8
I finally chose to do this part in "Sunshine" as it is the base color for "Burnished Leaves" so I thought it would be a good fit.
This was, of course, my fourth attempt at getting the color I liked. I tried out the green first and pulled it all out, then I went on to "Old Lace" an antiqued white, ivory, beige mix for a Dogwood/Magnolia feel and added cream beads. I stared at it off and on for a couple of days before pulling the beads and trying the Gold Luster beads, still didn't like it, so I pulled everything and started over with "Sunshine" then added the Gold Luster beads. It's been finished since April 28th and I still like the look; so it's a keeper.

I've also started working on the "Little Lace Hardanger" SAL in the same group, but no picture yet.

I want to thank everyone for all of the wonderful thoughts you leave behind after your visits, I know I don't say it nearly enough, so Thank You all from the bottom of my heart.

To answer a couple of questions I've had lately.
Yes, I will be selling my hand-dyed threads as soon as mother nature and my photography abilities are on the same page.
Yes, my designs are for sale, I have to work out what would be a reasonable price for a printed chart, haven't figured out yet how to send a PDF chart in an email. I also want to put some of the larger charts on Cross Stitch Addicts, of course, after I work out the whole PDF issue.

Well until next time dear stitchers.
Take Care & Happy Stitchin'
Hugs, Sandy
