A few days ago I stitched up these motifs from my "Quaker Friends" pattern.
One on 32ct and one on 40ct. Both were stitched with the most wonderful color silk.... Chocolate Caramel from The Thread Gatherer. I love this color. So much variegation and a very soothing palette. I also dyed some vintage chenille I had. I tried to get a few different shades so that I would have a choice for trimming my finish.
I made the larger motif into a sawdust stuffed pinkeep. I left lots of blank space for pins and I love the simplicity of the finish. I find simple always to be more pleasing. To my eye, anyway. I have an interesting finish in mind for the smaller motif and will work on that in the next few days.
Wishing you a wonderful week!
