WIP Wednesday

Hi everyone! Not much to update you on today, except to say that I finally received my fabric (Dream by Sunny Dyes Fabric) for the Clouds Factory Zodiac SAL.  While it is GORGEOUS, I think it will be a bit of a bitch to stitch on because the sparkles are painted on, and cover up some of the holes. It’s all worth it though! In reality it is way more blue than this picture in horrible low lighting ! 😎

Also, as others have done, I will be subbing out the gold satin floss for something else. Since I need to head to my LNS on Saturday to pick up some floss, I will look around for an acceptable supplement. I want to maintain the sheen without the aggravation. I will be looking to Rainbow Gallery, as well as some of the silks. I am excited to start!

My (almost) current progress on Tradewinds is as follows (I have done a bit more work on it than this):

    I haven’t seen anything like that fabric before, how sparkly! I’m sure the stress will bring many rewards too. great progress on the other piece too, though I must say I can’t wait to see your new start! 😀

    I will definitely be starting it this weekend, so you can count on an update next WIP Wednesday!

  3. Wow – great progress on Tradewinds! I have that in my “must do before I kick it” pile. Lets hope I’m still stitching at age 121…

    Your Tradewinds progress is looking great!

    And I can’t wait to see the Cloudsfactory Zodiac mystery on that fabric! I originally was going to switch to silks to replace my rayon threads, but I thought I would try out the regular DMC – I liked the way it worked on the fabric, so I will be having a toned-down-less-sheen version 😉 Of course, if I find i want more, I can hit it with something sparkly, but I think I’ll be happy. Can’t wait to see what you choose!

      Once i saw the XS stars, i considered replacing them beads… May still… Hmmm… I am a glutton for punishment!

  5. Wow!! You are so talented! I wish I could do this… Looks really beautiful… Kudos!
