This is my first SFS post, so I hope I'm doing it correctly.

And on to my WIP, Midnight Manor:


I managed a decent amount over the last 2 days and I'm really enjoying stitching with these threads. The only one that's a pain is the Kreinik #4 GITD thread, but I love the effect so much I'll keep at it. I even added eyes to the bat and cat and will do so for the owl and spider as well that show up on the other side. 

The tree is stitched with The Gentle Art Soot and I love the effect it has for tree bark. I think it works perfectly. I'm using WDW Mascara for the animals so far since it has such a nice blackness to it. 

Overall this has been a very enjoyable stitch so far and I will likely continue on. Possibly to a finish? We'll see. 

I also purchased this recently from Charting Creations and I cannot wait to start it! 


I have the fabric picked out, Amarinthine by Chromatic Alchemy and I'll stitch it 1 over 1 with DMC 310. Not that it's been on my mind much or anything.... :)

And that reminds me, remember this one? 

When I finished I had noticed the pattern had an error on the 2nd last row and "LOVED" was slightly off compared to the rest of the chart. The designer, Zindagi Designs contacted me out of the blue and said she was horrified to know her chart had an error. She's fixed the error in the chart and sent me a corrected copy too, which was very nice. 

And she did this a couple months ago, but I kept forgetting to post about it. So if you're interested in the design, the chart is even better now. :)

Happy Stitching,

Tiffstitch

  7. Thanks for the comments on my blog. You are a "no reply" so here I am to return the favour!
    I love your Hallowe'en piece and the new chart is gorgeous. But it's so big!! Hopefully being just one colour it won't take as long as some of those computer generated charts. Have you decided on a fabric?

    2. Thank you! I don't know how to fix my "no reply" status because Google + kind of messed everything up. But now that it's being discontinued maybe I can figure it out. I'm hoping it won't take too long to progress, but yes, it's big!!

  11. You've done quite well with your SFS and your new pattern is going to be stunning, particularly on that fabric (you're not trying to enable, now are you? :B).
