A smaller project

The snowbird was a large piece, and I headed into the stash bins looking for a smaller one and found Mystic.  Mystic is by Ruth Dilts  and the design is worked on an 8 x 10 piece of 18 count.....called for white, but I am using white with silver flecks in it.   Oh, and......big surprise.....I am changing the fibers!  The design instructions say to work the outline of the entire piece in Panache, black.  I am using Creta D'Oro, in black in the continental stitch.   I like to work from the stash......I actually thought it was inching towards me the other day.....anyway.... The original design was worked in black with light and dark sandstone and I will be changing those too.....This design has always caught my eye and I picked this up a couple of years ago.  It will work up fast, and I hope you like the color changes I am making.  I will be following all of the stitches Ruth had designed, just in different colors and fibers. Pop on over to her website and check out all the goodies she has waiting for you there!
  Hope you can stay tuned

I have this in my stash, too. Ruth has this made up in greens as the cover of a tote bag and it is spectacular. Can't wait to see how yours turns out.

Creeping stash? I'd laugh if that wasn't happening to me, too!
