… is what I have been up to. I will try to write a longer update tomorrow.
I ordered some patterns for my kitchen lately, after I decided to have a coffee-chocolate-theme. (What else! LOL) Then I saw that they had the Hinzeit Doctor-block for sale, and since I adore anything with charms and had been ogling it forever and ever, I ordered it too.
It arrived the other day and today I spent an embarrassingly long time matching fabric and flosses. I didn’t want to do it in the original colours because I find them kinda boring and much too un-purple.
I finally settled on a hand-dyed pink fabric from Polstitches. I will try to take a pic by daylight tomorrow, the colour is a good deal brighter than in this pic.
I will stitch it with Stef Francis Silk for the letters and outer border. It’s the first time I’m using silk and it is so wonderful to work with I never want to use anything else again.
The caducei are done in Carrie’s Creations Eggplant, and the inner border will be Carrie’s Creations Deep Purple.
You should see the charms, they’re so cute! I can’t wait to get this finished.
