Not exactly bright and colourful!

I caved and started  stitching a new design! 

I didn't have the threads in my stash to complete Ice Cardinal and my fingers were itching to be working on something. After all the grey threads used in Ice Cardinal I was relishing the thought of something bright and colourful, but this happened.......

Not exactly bright and colourful, is it? 

The new start is a kit that my hubby bought for me at the same time as Ice Cardinal, so I felt I really should start working on it......I have had it for quite some time now.

The design is called 'Winter's Lace' and it's a Dimensions Gold kit.  The dove grey aida is a breeze to work on after the black aida. So although it' not bright and colourful, it's lovely to work on. Can you see that wolf beginning to emerge?

I'll be heading off to the craft store sometime this week to get the threads to complete Ice Cardinal as it doesn't seem like Dimensions will be sending replacement threads. Hopefully next week I'll be able to show you a finish!

Until next time...happy stitching!

How rude not to respond! But at least you have something else to keep you busy while you wait for replacements threads.
