Stitching update

OK, I'm a bit scared posting this, but I think I finally beat the crud I had for about a month. YAY! I was actually able to get in some serious stitching this past weekend, instead of serious napping. I've been working on Skeleton Crew and Tsunami Sampler oer the last few weeks and got a lot done on Tsunami Sampler over the weekend. I'm stitching it using blues, greens and purples as those are my favorite colors. Looking back, I probably should have used DMC instead of variegated flosses, as it makes the sampler a bit busier than I usually like, but I still love the colors and think it will work out. The fabric is actually white, not mottled like it looks in the picture.

    Was Hillary Clinton near where you lived on Sunday?

    Your stitching looks great!

    I think the variegated looks great!

    I love your Skeleton Crew as well. Are you doing it on the fabric called for, or did you pick something else out? Inquiring minds (who can't make up their own minds about skeleton crew) want to know!

    Dianne -- I'm not exactly sure where Hilary was the other day, but I know it was somewhere in Drexel Hill. She wasn't near my part, though.

    Suz -- I can't remember the name of the linen I'm using for Skeleton Crew, maybe it's Cobblestone? It's a grayish-brown standard linen (not hand-dyed), about the color of DMC 844.

    Thanks to y'all for the compliements. I'm pretty happy with how both projects are turning out. :)
