the slow stitcher


I was in the mood for naughtiness last night and decided to start JBW Designs’ French Country Pumpkin. I looked through my thread stash and decided on GAST Fragrant Cloves, and then using some 30ct 18th Century Clove linen by R&R Reproductions seemed like a good idea too.

JBW French Country Pumpkin

It’s just past 1am here in Singapore and the light is way too poor to take a picture so I scanned my WIP instead and of course, the colours didn’t turn out right. 18th Century Clove is actually a lovely deep rust brown that’s a perfect complement to Fragrant Cloves, but it isn’t showing up properly in the picture at all. Oh well. I’ll probably finish this tomorrow in between running around (Zoe has a heart check-up in the afternoon) and maybe then I’ll get a better photo. In the meantime, g’night world!

PS: Thanks so much for the good thoughts yesterday. I finally caved and drank a sachet of Smecta (vile, let me tell you, vile), went to bed and am now all better.
