Time for the A Changed World SAL update. Remember Judy and Jo and I are stitching along on this chart so you can check out their progress on their blogs.
Have I mentioned how much I like stitching on this – well yes I think I have. Here’s where I was last Friday.
And here’s where I left off last night.
This week I finished the tree row and birds, and added everything from that point up to the top. I’m hoping to finish the row with the vine and flowers tonight and maybe start the flowers in that basket above it. But……. I may get distracted.
I bought and remembered to print before I left work, the pdf of this chart. I may need to pull floss and fabric for this and make a start on it tonight or I may wait until tomorrow but it needs to be started soon and will be a pretty easy stitch with areas you can outline and then just fill in – good movie (or Flosstube) watching stitching.
The other PDF I bought is this one by Stone Street Stitchworks (Etsy) but I’ll save this for some other day. It only has maybe 4 colors in it if I remember right.
I especially love the flowers/shrubs on either side of the house and the house. But of course the flowers with the blackbirds are cute too and all the little motifs. The border – well I’m not fond of busy/repetitive borders so that may or not not get stitched but this will definitely be a fund design to stitch.
I love your A Changed World, you are creating something special. I have never stitched on anything but Aida, would it work for this or does it need to be linen?
I am enjoying seeing what you, Judy and Jo are doing!
I’m stitching on Aida. 🙂
I’m loving your A Changed World! I’m working on the middle section too but not as far long. I did wonder about whether or not you went with a strong white for the white. On the yellow flowers I did one side with the suggested white shade (DMC) and it didn’t show much so I did the other side with white. Thinking that’s what I’ll do going forward.
Thank you. I’m using a mix of Weeks, GA and CC with only one or two DMCs mixed in so don’t know how the DMC color compares to what I’m using but I’m using Classic Colorworks Snowball which is definitely a white white. That part of the flower does not show up much in the chart photo and doesn’t show up much on mine either but I’m okay with that. Of course also depends on the fabric choice.
