Yesterday I found the chart for Hibernation Day which wasn’t so easy. When I first started ordering charts, I kept them in a drawer in my nightstand. I thought it might be in there since all the first few charts I ordered are not with the rest of the charts. It wasn’t in there so I looked a bit more and had about decided that instead of wasting time, I’d just order another chart. Then I remembered that I had kitted some of the charts with fabric and/or floss and they were in a storage ottoman so I went there and found it.
I had the called for floss but no linen. The chart calls for 28 count linen and that would mean using two strands of floss, which I prefer not to use and since I’m trying to stitch this so it fits into the frame, 36 count seems like it will work so I found a piece of 36 count Rocky Mountain by XJu Designs and I think it will be perfect.
It’s hard to get an accurate picture of the linen in the basement lighting but I think this one is better.
The colors are pretty close to the colors in the frame. I changed the white to a brighter white because most any other off white or white seemed yellow and blended with the fabric. I’ll be using one strand so it won’t be as bright as it appears in the picture. I still may change it if looks too bright once I start stitching.
The called for green is Piney Woods but the Piney Woods skeins I had are more brown so I changed that to a more green.
This looks just a little cluttered for my taste so I’m going to leave out a few things and add more space between some things. I made my working copy and counted up the rows for the things I’m removing, counted up the rows I’ll be adding and got it all worked out, hopefully, so I can keep the same number of rows and the size will work out to fit in this frame.
.. just curious – what elements are you leaving out? I think this would look great in your downstairs bedroom – the room without a view!
Mostly some of the border/divider sections and then leaving more spaces between other elements.
