A New Start

I started something new today...and it is for me! I started Bent Creek's "The Branch" Snappers. It is on 32ct. Lambswool Belfast and I am using good old DMC Floss. I didn't get too far but here it is.

For the border, it tells you to use #612, however, it is too close in color to the linen for me so I am using 1 strand of #612 and 1 strand #3053. It looks much better.

This must not be too popular a design as I have not seen it on any blogs. However, I like it and it shouldn't take too long to stitch.

That's it for tonight, I need to get to bed. Thanks for stopping by!

I really love this design and have it on my list of stitching I would like to get done one day. You have made a great start.

Cute design. Looking forward to see it finished

Daniela said...

Beautiful new start. I haven't seen this one before either, but I like it.

Your blog inspired me to start cross stitchin again. The only problem I can foresee is looking for patterns.

This looks like a great pattern and a quick project once the boader is done. Enjoy

Oh I love it! I have been craving this design but I can never find them when I go stash shopping. Maybe that's why no one has been stitching it!
