I started this piece quite some time ago, but it seemed like the perfect project to return to now.  
This is Laura J. Perin's "Color Study: Starry Nights", and I have changed the colorway to a red, white, and blue theme.

I'm using DMC perle cotton #5 in 321 red, 336 blue, and 3865 white, along with the corresponding DMC floss in the same colors.  I think that the background will be Caron Watercolours in Honeysuckle, but I only have one skein and am not sure if it will be enough, so that might change.

All I know is that I'm enjoying this tremendously, and am just happy that needle and thread are part of my evenings again!  Oh, how I missed the perfection of a LJP chart!

Stewey sends his love and thanks for your concern for his recent Mo-ther induced injury.  I have to say...he only milked it for a day or two before he returned to his usual Royal Heineyness Little Self.  Almost makes me wonder if he realized how bad I felt and decided to go easy on me?  


  1. This is going to be gorgeous, I'm so glad that you are back into your stitchy groove. Good for you.

    Also, glad to read that little Stewey is much improved. I hope he did see how awful you felt about an honest accident and took it easy on you.

    Happy needling!

  2. So gl;ad Stewey is better....

  3. Wow! What a stunning piece and I really like and prefer your color version. Glad Stewey is on the mend!

  4. I started that several years ago--I love it, but it has fallen to the wayside while I work on my other 5639 WIPs. Maybe this will inspire me to finish it.

  5. How gorgeous! I agree with Robin that your choice of colour looks much nicer, are we aiming for something new for your great white wall? Glad to hear Stewey is feeling better.

  6. Beautiful!! I love the colors you chose :)

  7. Nice way to usher in the 4th of July. Glad to hear that little "peg leg" is feeling better!

  8. Beautiful job, I love the colors and love the fact that your scissors and glasses match! I enjoy seeing your amazing work, it inspires me...

  9. Gorgeous Coni, not to mention the fetching glasses, scissors and scissor holder...you are too cute!
