Stewey and I have decided that Wednesday shall henceforth be known as a no computer day. And, since we had such great success with Futzingday last week, we've decided to continue it and combine its celebration with some quietude around here.
In that spirit, I hauled myself up to the studio yesterday and futzed about until I had sufficiently cleaned the place up a bit and until I was satisfied that I had fondled every single item in my ridiculously decadent stitchy stash.
I'm pretty sure that if I ever have to pack this crap up I'm gonna need a bigger boat.
Anywhoose...I put some kitted projects into my big blue basket and then decided to start a little something new:
This is A Quaker Study from Carriage House Samplings. I'm stitching mine on 28ct. Cafe Mocha (love love love that!) with Weeks Dye Werks "Basil". Yummy. The linen is the same that I used for Quaker Diamonds, and the thread is a lovely mash-up of purpley grey lavenders and olivey green.
There must be something to that color combination, since it would seem that I'm drawn to it again and again. I had originally thought that I would opt for a couple of reds for this one, but as soon as I caught sight of the Basil, I was done for.
I'm off to find a patch of sunlight. Stewey seems a little chilled today, so methinks it's time to put our faces in the sun and snuggle under a big fuzzy blanket for a while.
