ARRIVING SOON FROM WITH THY NEEDLE AND THREAD
Brenda Gervais is bringing us 4 holiday treats. Ho!Ho!Ho! is stitched on a 36ct Tin Roof and uses WDW, CC Belle Soie (DMC alternatives are given) an GAST threads.
Merry Mouse is really cute and is stitched on a 40ct fabric (you can stitch on something larger) using WDW, GAST and CC threads.
One Starry Christmas Eve is on a 36ct Aztec Red using CC Belle Soie, with DMC alternatives given.
Last but not least, is Jolly Happy Soul. Stitched on a 35ct fabric using WDW, GAST and CC.
All of the above can be stitched on larger counts and you can use your own color schemes if you want to use only DMC colors. Have you tried the overdyes? Yes, they are more expensive but I do believe they give more depth to your pieces. Once you start purchasing them, you'll start creating a stash of overdyed colors and can use them in future designs.
