Stitching Updates

I'm almost finished with my Floral sampler, but Michael's Crafts was out of the bright yellow DMC  floss that I needed, so I will substitute some other color in the remaining bottom border flowers.


I stitched some on my Coeur d'Hiver. I used some DMC specialty glistening  floss, and found it stiff and difficult to get to lie flat when used in two strand crosses. I'll be using it as one strand for some of the backstitched snowflake flowers.

 

I'm afraid we will have a drought this summer, what with the lack of snow and rain.
Happy stitching!

Gorgeous colorful sampler! I recently met a woman whose husband is an executive with Michaels and I told her they aren't doing a good job stocking our XS supplies!
