Hi everyone, the first Santa's House is finished of the Country Cottage Needleworks Santa's Village, however, I am not happy with it, my first reason, I don't like the fabric and the second reason, I stitched it too close to the edge, only one thing for it, I have to change the fabric and start again! Aggghhh!
You know when you are simply just not happy with something and you know that feeling will just not go away until you do something about it?
It is my own fault, I know I do not like stitching on this particular lambswool linen (Permin) but I thought I would follow what the pattern suggested, anyway, I changed my mind and ordered my favourite stitching fabric, 32 count Murano linen, it is a pale grey and I simply love using this stuff! It arrived today, so hopefully I should be starting again this evening.
If I had seen the post on the Country Cottage Needlework blog here first I may not have made the mistake with the size of the material, I basically tried to guess and did not realise that the houses were stitched very close to each other.
The next pattern has already arrived so I need to get a stitch on! I think the third pattern is out already but I am pacing myself with this and intend to do one a month, mmmm, well two in February and one in March!lol
This is a close up photo of the Pale Grey Murano Linen, I love the evenweave of this fabric, all very neat!
Getting ready to measure and away I go!
Hope to have some stitching done on this very soon!
Until next time Happy Stitching!
