I have had a couple of questions from blog followers this week, and I thought it might be worthwhile to share my answers with everyone.
A lovely reader Mary Ann (who I wasn't able to respond to personally) asked about what background fabric I'm using. Of course I'm happy to share. There are two backgrounds, and they're both by French General - the one with the tiny print is from the French General Favourites line. The one that is more plain and has a slight woven look, and I think it's from the Maison de Garance line. The colourway for both the prints is oyster. I love both the fabrics, and this is the third project I've used the woven looking print for. Thank you for asking Mary Ann! :-)
Another sweet reader Meryl asked what needles and thread I use. This one is easy - I've used Piecemakers betweens for a long time. For me they're tried and true, and I love that the eye of the needle isn't wider than the shaft. And the thread I've been using is Masterpiece by Superior Threads. While I was in the USA in 2012, I purchased a bobbin donut at the Superior Threads booth, and I have to say it has been one of my most favourite purchases ever! Some of my bobbins are getting low, and I'm going to have to replace my favourite colours soon.
May I also just say that I'm not compensated for these recommendations in any way, just a very satisfied customer.
I'd also like to say a big Hi to Jenni who commented recently, I'd love to reply personally, but your email address didn't come through to me xox
No stitching at all so far for me today, and the day is almost over. I've been out and about with Camo, and this evening has been spent doing guild work. If I'm super lucky I may be able to trace another block before I head to bed, but maybe tomorrow will be the day instead. Chatter soon!
