Silkwood Manor



I finally started this one! It is on forget-me-not blue 28ct Joblean, and so far I really like how it is coming out. I bought the silks for the satin roses so that I could get the crinkly look for them, but the rest I'm doing in DMC. Although I did substitute a Silk Mori shade for the lettering at the top and probably will use the same color for the lettering on the bottom. :) This is my progress for the weekend, I would have gotten more done except that I also did the outlining of my layout for the Just Nan RR that is coming up in October, so that is ready. I think I will do the stitching for that next so that it is ready to go. Next weekend, I'll have to do the same for the Sweethear Tree RR. :)

Is it REALLY 81 deg. at 5 in the morning??!! OMG, I am sorry. They weren't kidding when they said it was moving from us to you. Wow.

Stay outta the heat!!

Yep - really that hot at 5am. UGH. For the most part WI has relatively mild summers, but there always seems to be one heat wave every summer where the temps reach the high 90s.

You've got a great start, Jenny. It's going to be beautiful.
