Mothers Day Start

It was really hectic here last weekend, so I decided I needed something to work on that was simple and didn`t consist of overdyed fibers that the two visiting dogs could drool on...so I started this:It`s Coffin Buzz, by Plum Street Samplers. I am stitching it on 28ct mushroom Jazlyn with DMC 3031. After it is finished I think I will coffee dye it, just for fun!

Thanks for looking, and keep stitching ladies!

I'd not seen this chart before, it's brilliant! I so need this for my office - I work with real skeletons and I'm known as one of the coffee fiends...

Thanks for sharing a fabulous start!

Wise move coffee dyeing after stitching it up. I've found I'm always "thirsting" for coffee or tea when I predye. Every hear of a company called, "Maritime Cross Stitch"? I believe the designer's name is Pam Stoke and she was from Bridgetown, NS. She listed Classic Hobbies in Middleton, NS as a source of supplies and framing. They closed down last year. I first found one of their designs in a shop in Truro, NS. It was Blossom Sampler and I tea/coffee dyed my fabric. Bought a few more of their designs from Traditional Stitches. The BLue Sampler and The Green Sampler are also stitched on linen that I tea/coffee dyed myself. Maria S. (Ont)

Yes, I have heard of Maritime Cross Stitch...I haven`t stitched any of their designs though. Classic Hobbies was my LNS, but sadly, yes, they are closed. Pam Brown that ran the shop now has a bead shop at the same location. I got the beads to do my scissors fob there, and I am planning another trip for a few more...
