Instead of saying it’s kitted, I should say “There’s a bag with lots of linen and lots of floss – possibilities for stitching this one.” I am not sure why I’m sharing this one because I don’t think I have a clue what I’m going to do.
Most of the time, I can pull fabric and floss fairly quickly. Sometimes, I do sub the floss or fabric but rarely do I struggle like I did on this one.
The chart is Jane Summer’s Work 1831 by Shakespeare’s Peddler. How can I say no to a red house?
The called for fabric is Morning Coffee by XJu Designs, which to me doesn’t look anything like the fabric in the picture but I know (1) dye lots are different and (2) it could be just the photo.
I think some of these floss colors aren’t going to show up so great on Morning Coffee so I began pulling other floss and then began pulling more fabric.
All three of these fabrics are currently in the project bag.
Here’s the Morning Coffee on the left and the fabric on the right is the same fabric as is on the left in the photo above – Hogbristle by Fox & Rabbit.
I thought I had decided on Hogbristle and then I saw this fabric which is a fabric the XJu lady dyed for me to match one the club selections last year.
With the pinks and reds in the floss, I think this linen may be perfect!
The floss looks great on Paperbark by Fox & Rabbit also. I would probably change the light (Oatmeal) to something just a tad less white.
I don’t know what I’ll do. I’ll zip the bag and put it in the “kitted” pile and when it’s time to start stitching, I’ll figure it out.
But, if you have an opinion about the linen I should use, I’d love to hear it!
