Mostly about cross stitching, and a little bit about me too

Back on Rotation
I'm back on rotation, and feeling good about it! Last night I picked up Awake the Dawning Day again and carried on stitching the LH vines. I really love these Loose Feathers designs - I think I forgot to mention that the latest one came a few days ago, and it's gorgeous! I'm really looking forward to stitching it - although I do have one question that you might be able to help with - the fabric (R&R 28ct 'Sea Fog') that came with it is a delicate murky green (if you can describe something as delicate and murky all at once), but it most definitely does not have a delicate scent. Pungent and moth balls come to mind! If you have any experience/advice about washing hand dyed fabric, do let me know as I don't think I can bring myself to stitch on it smelling as it currently does!
I'm **nearly** there on catching up on my blog reading - we don't have a computer at home, and I don't always have a lot of spare time at work to squeeze in all that I want to do on the internet :)
I'm Stephanie, a 35-year old Canadian, married to an Irishman, and living in Berkshire, England. I've been stitching for about 3 years, and have just begun to learn to quilt and am also rediscovering knitting.
