Naughty November New Start #2 - Let's Have Fun In The Sun

Good morning!

Whether you are linking up or not, welcome back to this Naughty November mini new start binge, a bit of naughty fun as we head towards the end of the year.

For weekend number two I started the second of Ursula Michael's seasonal word 'snow' globes.

I think you'll agree, it's another perfectly-matched fabric:

Let's Have Fun In The Sun by Imaginating
Stitched on 16ct Shades Of Summer by
Stitching time to date - 5 hours 45 minutes

Last week I forgot to mention that I will be adding some bling, stitching the motifs and bolder letters using one strand of DMC and one strand of Etoile.

Of course not all of the colours have matching Etoile, but rather than changing the colours to match the available Etoile, I am using the closest Etoile to the colour listed. This means some of the stitching will have a tweed effect, as can be seen in the starfish and the bottom half of 'hello'. I rather quite like the extra dimension it adds.

But enough about my new start, I want to see yours too, so here's this week's link for you to add your page, name, and thumbnail. I look forward to seeing them all!

See you next Monday for start number three. :)

Take care,

Oh, I like this one too, and you can tell a little bit from the photo how the Etoile changes it. Great start!

Linda said...

Awesome start Rachel. I love her word charts.

I love these charts and again, your fabric choice is perfect.

I agree the 2 fabrics you chose for Spring and Summer snow globes are perfect.

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

Great work, the fabrics really do match the designs well. I didn't quite finish my start this weekend, over one stitching does take a lot of time!

You are right! Another perfect fabric for the season of the chart. It looks great Rachel.

Katie said...
