Remeber how I said I wouldn’t start my mystery project until both Winter Fantasy and Grandma Pitty-Boo were done? Well, I am happy to report that I almost made it that far. Winter Fantasy is just a few more darning stitches from being finished (edited: Winter Fantasy IS finished), GPB is still the way she was and I did start my mystery project. It will be my one strand a day (OSAD) project until it is finished. Then I can start another OSAD project.
As this is stitched all in one color, it is perfect for a OSAD project. This project will be my morning project, just before I go to work, I can do one strand. I will have to time myself to see how long it takes, but it sure will be fun. Ofcourse I had do a few more strands last Sunday when I started the project, but as I had finished my Hardanger part on Winter Fantasy I felt I could do it.
This is Petits Carrés Hibernaux from Marjorie Massey. It’s been in my stash since September and I absolutely LOVE it. It’ll be quite a while before it’s done as you stitch the background and not the motifs, but that’s ok. I might bring it with me to Dallas and Nashville as a OSAD project is very suitable for plane travels LOL.
Fabric is 36ct Edinburg linen, color 53 (raw) and the thread is Soie d’Alger 2925.
I need to get a picture of the complete chart and will post that next time I give an update. I’ll try to give an update every Thursday. But I can tell you already that I have done quite a bit more since I took this picture :). It’s so addicting to keep stitching, but the office expects me to be at work around 8.45am. Don’t know why, but I guess if I’d like to get a paycheck I’d better be there LOL.
I will try to post a picture every week so that you can see what progress I have been able to make. I must admit that as of today, I have worked several strands of silk instead of just one LOL.
