Long time no start

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!


  1. Looks great! Teal/Turquoise is my favorite color and it looks lovely in this design.

  2. Great new start. Pretty colors together.


  3. All your work looks really nice

  4. Gorgeous colors! It must be fun stitching with the silks.
