DSDUCJFC 2015 - Day 50

Hello!

Yesterday's Harry Potter quiz seemed to be quite popular, producing 5 Gryffindors, 4 Ravenclaws and 1 Hufflepuff. No Slytherins I'm pleased to say - if anyone had been a Slytherin I probably would have blacklisted you from my blog!

This is the only other Pretty Little City I have in my collection (so far!) It's nice and bright and cheerful, unlike the wind and rain outside. I'm really, really, really looking forward to returning to this one.

From Satsuma Street (etsy)
Stitched on 16ct Apricot Sunset hand-dyed aida by The Crafty Kitten 2 over 1


It's also the end of the voting for whether or not I should continue daily new starts into March. The result was 67% for continuing and 33% for calling it a day. I'm actually quite surprised by that. After much contemplation, deliberation and procrastination (ooh, big words!!) I have decided to...... tell you my decision tomorrow - ha, ha, ha!!!

Happy stitching

What's wrong with Slytherins?

Mii Stitch said...

LOL! Now I understand what you mean!! Pretty Little Paris is lovely & colourful :)
Once again, I adore your fabric choice. You have such beautiful fabrics in your stash!!!! I'm really envious :D
I'm amazed at how many people wants you to carry on with the challenge in March... Just follow your heart, will and... purse! ;)
Have a lovely weekend xx

Beautiful start and the colours are lovely.

Contrary to what it might look like, I only keep plain fabric in my stash. Any hand-dyed fabric I use is bought for a specific project. I wish I could have a stash of hand-dyed fabric as there are so many beautiful ones out there. :)

Rachel Tomkins said...

Absolutely nothing - it was just a joke! I've just read that you're a big Harry Potter fan. I haven't just offended a Slytherin have I??? :)

Justine said...

Arrggghhhhh! Why didn't I start mine on such gorgeous fabric? That's really beautiful, and a great start too!
I agree with Mii, it's your stitching so do what makes you happy. You've started some beautiful things and it would be a shame to let them languish...

Beautiful new start. Love the fabric! I can't wait to see what your decision is. I wish you luck in whatever you decide.

I bought this one and London after seeing them on your blog. I was going to do it on a plain boring beige, but your start has inspired to spend the $$ on something pretty and hand-dyed! Looking forward to your progress.

Rachel Tomkins said...

Thank you Elaine. These Pretty Little City charts would look good on "plain boring beige" as you put it but I'm glad to have inspired you to try hand-dyed fabric instead. Good luck in making your choice from the many scrummy fabrics available. I'll be interested to see your start on your chosen fabric. :)

Love the new start; I must get those! And very pretty fabric. I'm continuing my starts into March, and I look forward to finding out if you are, too. If not, I'll look forward to seeing your progress on all your other starts :-)

Caitlin D said...

SO PRETTY!!! The last thing I need is another pattern, but watching so many stitching these pretty cities is making me so anxious to get them all! I absolutely adore the fabric you chose. I too buy mine on a project by project basis, though wish my fabric stash was near the size of my pattern stash. :-)

Aubs Ogrady said...

No, I'm a Hufflepuff :) I just have many Slytherin friends (One being my Mum)
Most people think Slytherins are nasty but most of them are nice. They're traits are ambitious, cunning, and resourcefulness :)

Miamina said...

Love it! It's funny, if you had asked me last year if I would stitch something like that I'd have said no! Now, having seen a few people stitching these colourful designs, I'd love to stitch one! They have really grown on me and I love the bright colours too! Great fabric choice :)

Linda said...

You know this is my favorite. Great start. I love all of these designs.
