I took advantage of the Thanksgiving Day sale and, after much debate, purchased the following two fabrics.
I chose Secret for Red…
…and Storm for dah, dah, dah…I can’t say. It’s a gift for a friend. Unfortunately, anything related to this project cannot be shared until the very end. I don’t think I’ll be getting to this project any time soon however, as I have a project order that I intend to follow.
I didn’t want Red to be overpowered by what was going on in the background (fabric), so I chose something that I thought was noticeable enough, yet completely subtle.
I chose Storm because I fell in love with the fabric when I stitched Lyrical on her. I think the grey/pink fabric will compliment the design quite well.
This time around, I chose 28-ct Jobelan fabric for both. I typically stitch on 32-ct. I’ve read in the Facebook groups that 28-ct is a little more accommodating when attaching beads in clusters. I have found that, on occasion, my beads look bunched up, or just don’t sit as well as I would like. I’m hoping that the 28-ct fabric will help to rectify that issue.
