DUCJC 2016 - Day 28 - Eat Locally

Hello again!

So, here we have the last of Lizzie Kate's Green series, challenging us to be more environmentally friendly. Stitching-wise this was the least I have achieved in one day for a long time but was still enough for a visible start:

Lizzie Kate
Stitched on 16ct Muted Garden hand-dyed aida by The Crafty Kitten 2 over 1
Stitch count 40 wide by 63 high
Estimated stitching time 11 hours
Stitching time to date - 30 minutes

Remember on Ride A Bike I mentioned it looked like the greens might have been listed incorrectly or swapped around on the girl's jumper? Well, I'm more convinced that that is now the case as I definitely used the correct colours for the leek yet they are the opposite to those on the picture again.

I've checked the LK website for errata and there aren't any listed for this Green Series (although I'm actually surprised at how many there are for other charts). It's a bit annoying but I think some frogging and substituting might be called for otherwise the sweetcorn and pea are going to look wrong. Take heed if you are thinking of stitching this series.

Tomorrow we have another Christmas Pals Ornament who would feel right at home on the east coast of America right now!

See you then,
Rachel x

Another great project! Once again I love your fabric choice.
That really stinks about the greens and the frogging you'll have to do:/

Justine said...

That's a pity about the greens. I can definitely see what you mean. At least you didn't stitch too much yesterday.
I can't believe it's almost the end of January already! Any chance you would continue the new starts into February, just for me? I need my 9am fix of cuteness!

Mii Stitch said...

Oh no!! Thank goodness you didn't stitch much on this design.
I will have to remember this when I will be working on mine.
Only 2 more new starts... unless you're planning to carry on in February... or the whole year! :D

Katie said...

I can definitely see it that is frustrating. Just love the fabric for these. LOL At Ingrid and Justine for asking you to keep going. I want to see progress instead. Just keep posting updates with the progress so Justine has something to read.

Heather said...

At least it's started it looks fine to me!

Linda said...

One stitch is a start Rachel. Thanks for the heads up on the charts.


Brigitte said...

These Green series really represents some nice ideas. I love the motto of this last chart. And you are right, the greens are mixed up.

Another good start! But my grandson would probably think eat locally means at the first drive-thru you come to after leaving the house! :) On the Ride A Bike one if the colors look fine to you then I would leave it rather than frogging it but that is just my opinion!

Thoeria said...

Another great choice and start, Rachel! I really love your fabric choices! They're so perfect for each project :)
And the little witch you stitched earlier....LOVE her!

Preeti said...

All the designs in these series are cute !! :) looking forward to see them again in your progress pictures next month.

How annoying about the greens. Have you contacted them to let them know since the error is not already listed?
I eat in my kitchen which is local enough for me LOL
