Here it is, the project that has me completely sidetracked from my goal list this month (aside from exchanges, round robins and gifs, of course!). I am still waiting on braids and beads, and wow, the stitching feels like it is such slow going without my Ott-Lite too.... really, really need that new bulb soon :-(
And, isn't this something? I started my HoE Needle Roll Exchange earlier today, and I chose a pretty hand dyed fabric to compliment the design. I took the fabric out of the package and was amazed at how poor the back of the linen looked. This is dyed by one of the relatively popular dyers... Country Stitch. Wow, terrible! The front is quite good. That big one spot shows lightly a little on the other side, but my stitching will be dealing with that (already is covered, as I stitched quite a lot after taking the photo). Anyhow... just sharing how shocked I was to see that they sold this fabric like this.... oh my. I hope the insides of the ends of my neederoll don't end up giving a visual access to the spots!
Stitched on today: Started HoE Needle Roll Exchange, and stitched on Halloween Fairy
