This past weekend was International Hermit & Stitch Weekend (IHSW) and I didn't have the time or energy to work on any of my current projects. As I was tidying up Sunday night (and bemoaning the fact I had no progress to show for IHSW), I accidently on purpose prepped the fabric for something new.
It's been a while since I've had a new start on a project that isn't a gift. I've been wanting to start Ciara Blue by Blackwork Journey since last December, but just haven't been able to find the time (or make decisions about fabric and floss).
I finally decided to stitch it on 32 ct white lugana using HDF silk in black and Carrie's Creations silk in Marina.
I must admit I am loving it! The colours are very me and I love the rich boldness of the turquoise. It's a pretty fiddly chart, but only an hour or two in and it is stunning!
