DUCJC 2015 - Day 11

Good morning!

Day 11, just over one third of the way through and I am still loving starting a new project everyday! I thought it would get boring and frustrating but so far... so good!

Thank you again for all of the comments you are leaving. They are all read and really appreciated, especially those along the lines of "I'd like to stitch that too". It's nice to know I might be providing inspiration (and depleted bank balances!) to fellow stitchers.

On to the new start. This is quite a large chart compared to previous Challenge starts but was just far too cute to ignore. The leaves are 1 over 1 - a weird feeling as I couldn't cut and loop or railroad. The pale blue/green shading on the fabric is very subtle but should look lovely showing through, hopefully mimicking a summer sky (because that's why I bought it!)

Another cutie tomorrow and time to dig out the pink!

Loving this design!!! You keep showing all these charts that I see and think I must stitch that one day and then the magazine gets put away and they get forgotten about! :o)
I always get lost when doing the one thread half stitches.....
Lovely fabric choice!
