The planned start date for Winter Rose Manor is March 17. Everyone who wants to stitch this one have your chart, floss, fabric ready? Here’s the post I wrote about this project.
I made a few stitches in along the edge to check some of the floss colors that I thought might not show up on my linen.
- Oscar – Although I love that green, and that’s actually what my wild and crazy dog is named after, it just wasn’t going to show up on my linen so I changed that to Victorian Motto’s Orchid Stem.
- Palomino – This one was really blending so I changed it to Victorian Motto’s Autumn Bronze. I love this color and keep stalking their Etsy shop to try to get more of it. It’s a beautiful goldy brown with bronze highlights.
- Conch – Not sure if I’m going to change that one or not. I don’t want the house to be Pepto Bismal pink but I want it to appear to be pink so I may change that one. Sometimes making a few stitches doesn’t give an accurate indication of the intensity of the color until you get a good number of stitches together so I’ll start the house using Conch and then see what I think. If I do change it, I’ll use an unnamed Colour & Cotton Limited Edition pink.
I think this is going to be a project I can’t stop once I start stitching it.
Hope everyone who wants to stitch this has received all your supplies. If not, join us as soon as you can.
