Last year I had chosen Soy Luster thread in a sort of periwinkle blue dark color. I never was quite sure of it and couldn't really decide what I wanted. Maybe that held me back?? Anyway, I'm loving this pink palette for this year's attempt...finish. It makes me happier and I feel confident in it. I always felt the browns just didn't speak to the love of colors and joyful spirit of Beatrix Potter....so I've always wanted to change them, anyway.
I also kitted up Cricket Collection's "Sleepy Hollow" which came out last year, and which I never got to. This fabric is from Silkweavers and is called Stormy Skies or something...can't quite remember. Naturally, it's been in my stash since I owned the Cabbage Rose Needlework shop. It has sections of storm cloudiness. I really didn't want it to be so dark and gloomy a background that we lost the colors of witches houses, etc....:] in the whole piece as it continues to be a full Halloween neighborhood.
Otherwise, I'm nursing along my cervical spine herniated discs which are causing me horrendous pain down my right neck and arm!! Ouch!! This has not kept me from stitching and kitting...:) I've been seeing my massage therapist, but that's not really helping. Jessica has kindly gotten me an appt. to see a specialist in these things and acupuncture, too, on Wednesday. Hopefully, I'll be able to avoid the surgery like I had on my other shoulder 3 yrs ago!! Not fun!
Thank you so much for reading and leaving comments on my blog. Friends keep me going... Hugs, Deb
