Still Waters first WIP pic.

Here’s where I stopped on Still Waters. I am loving the fabric I chose – at first I thought I would use a piece of Lakeside Linens’ Peddler’s Moon, but then I realised that it was too close to some of the floss colours.

After rummaging through my fabric box (during which I discovered that a giant piece of white Belfast had fungus growing on it, followed subsequently by the equally shocking discovery that one of my beloved Botkier bags has also become a mould farm – ACK!) I found a fat quarter of Cappuccino which I had ordered sight unseen from Catherine at Countrystitch last month. It’s a lot more cappuccino-ish than you see in the photo; maybe I’ll be able to capture the colour more accurately next time. In the meantime, if you have suggestions about what to do with fungusy linen, please share them with me.

Anyway, Still Waters has been a pretty easy stitch so far. The star is not complete because I was too lazy to bobbin my floss and I didn’t get more of the border done because, honestly, I hate stitching borders. Boringggg.

Melissa, I’m looking forward to seeing your WIP pic!
