Rowyn from Stitching under the Southern Cross Blog here recently shared one of her Shepherd's Bush Charts ( along with the left over thread) and I was the lucky one to be selected in the draw.
It arrive late last week and I must admit other things were put aside so I could stitch it straight away, I really enjoyed stitching this little design and would now like to offer the chart to another embroiderer.
For my piece I stitch on 35 count Lambswool permin , not the 32 as suggested and kept a note of how much thread I used of each colour. The threads were silk and the number given apply to
Kreinik Soie D'alger there is not enough of all colours to stitch another one however I have checked the colours against my DMC chart and made a list so if anyone else would like this chart I am happy to pass it on. Please leave a comment and in a weeks time on February 6th I will do a draw and pass the chart on to another embroiderer,
I plan to make this into a Needle book and havin looking at some of my Shepherd's Bush designs for small motif to finish it.
Simple threrads which to the work belong
Remember in your silence - my hearts song.
