Seasons by Amybear Needlepoints
I confess. I have started a new project. I know, I have lots going on already, but I wanted something to work on occasionally that had no requirements or deadlines! So I went to my stash of patterns, which is really getting out of hand LOL, and settled on Amybear Needlepoints' "Seasons". It is not a small project (design area 12"x12") but it is interesting, without being too difficult.
When I looked at the supply list I was delighted to find that it uses nothing but Watercolours! My favorite thread! Well, that did it. I cut a piece of Sandstone canvas and got it on stretchers. Then I dove into my drawer of Watercolours. Of course, I am changing all the colors, it'll have an aqua/turquoise/tan/rust theme. I know, you're soooo surprised! But that is what I have a lot of in my stash. I will have to buy a few skeins, but not much. I may add a little bit of Kreinik metallic braid, just for fun. I got a good start on the center block and it's lookin' good!
