A New Start!

Oh how I love a new start!

Last night, I started Spanish Wine, which I have been longing to start for ages, but was waiting for the linen to arrive - and it has! So last night I finally got all the threads together (I am using the DMC conversions with a couple of Au Ver a Soie silks) and put in my first rows of stitches. The first job is to stitch around the border - maybe not so riveting, but I'm definitely looking forward to working on this one. It's quite a large one, but it's separated out into several smaller bands, so should keep my interest :)

Here is how I fared last night, probably not the most interesting of progress photos LOL

Happy stitching and happy weekend everyone! It's bound to be a wet one here - it has been raining steadily for months it seems, and our thoughts are with those in the flood zones who have lost not only their property, but in some cases their lives.

Oh, I love Spanish Wine. I don't have it in my stash but I've always wanted to stitch it. It will be fun to watch you do this one ;)

This is going to be a pretty piece-I have often admired this one.

I look forward to watching your progress on this! Your stitching is lovely - that you have posted on your blog.

Take Care!
