It's looking great. I forgot, did you change threads from the stitch guide?
Yes, I used threads from my stash. My friend who is stitching these along side me is using the exact colors from the guide and there is very little difference.
Wow. The gold and gray together are striking. I would never have thought of that color combination as being so dramatic. Look's great.
Thanks! What are you working on these days?
Hi Steph,This Magi is looking great. You are really speeding along on this Nativity. Linda
Yes, they are so easy to stitch. Are you starting to get ready? I pulled out my fall clothes and am happy to say that all the pants are too big! Going shopping starting on Monday.
I just discovered your blog and enjoy following the progress on this project. Keep up the great work!
Welcome. Glad to have you.
Have had a house guest since Wednesday, so catching up on your stitching today. Looks great! What is an ort jar? Glad it had your scissors.........Sarah
An ort jar is used to collect the threads you snip off. This is 2012. Some people decorate their's or even have monthly jars to collect. I start collecting my orts after seeing a post where the stitcher threw her orts out for the birds. She had trees full of colorful nests.
I agree with Dr Payne. I never would have thought gray and gold would look so good together. And what an inventive way to stitch squares. Looks like the gray is slightly variegated? Love it.
