WIP ~ Resurrection

This was a MUST HAVE chart as soon as I saw it!  It is from Examplars From The Heart.  The linen... well, I'm not sure.  I had hoped that I would find a post on it here in my blog but alas just pictures no info.  It's a 40 ct but I'm not sure on the color anymore.  I started this last spring and then put it down to stitch stockings and what have you.  I just picked it back up last night.  I'm working on the sun right now.  Oh, how heavenly!  The threads are silks from Hand Dyed Fibers... scrumptious!  If you haven't stitched with silk you should treat yourself... hmmm... or maybe not... Here's the link to Vikki at HDF 

My only concern is the color of floss for the sun with my choice for the linen... do you think it'll be ok?  I suppose it's a little late to fret about... The lat thing I want to do is pull all those stitches... not to mention finding a floss to replace it with... hmmm... well, stay tuned for continued progress... (hopefully) LOL!  
Keep an eye out I'm gonna post stash later!


  1. Gorgeous...but, that's alot of stitchin' even for me!! LOL!

    Happy Stitchin'

  2. That is going to be gorgeous. I don't know what to say about the sun - perhaps you could go over it with a half stitch of something a little darker. There are no rules with cross stitch. I wouldn't rip it out though.

  3. Wow, that is one amazing sampler.

    Perhaps the sun will stand out a little more once you've stitched more of the other colours around it?

    It would be a shame to rip it out, but if you really don't think you're going to be happy with it, it might be worth the frogging and finding another colour to your satisfaction.
