It's the first Saturday of the month so time for the People's Choice SAL run by Jo from Serendipitous Stitching. Continued thanks to Jo for hosting this unique SAL which has a different theme each month.
This month's theme is Blue, I colour I think of as being either quite cold or associated with water and sealife.
Off the top of my head I thought I'd probably stitched a fair amount of blue, but was surprised to discover blue fabric has actually been used on over 60 projects! Obviously I won't show them all so have stuck to the bluest of the blue, whether that be regarding the fabrics and/or threads and/or the item(s) used to finish them.
So, starting with the smallest and working upwards to the biggest pieces, my bluest of the blue are:
Mr Daydream, stitched on Cloud Spring Sky and finished with a blue card:
September In Sapphire, stitched on Glacier with a blue variegated thread, blue beads and blue backing fabric:
Seahorse Critter, stitched on an aptly-named blue fabric called Ocean:
Dolphin Splash, finished with a double blue mount (the fabric is a bright white but my camera at the time was brilliant at picking up other colours!):
Dreaming Of Dolphins, treated to a blue frame:
And, finally Hogwarts In A Bottle, stitched on some gorgeous blue fabric from Chromatic Alchemy called Lazurite:
I also have quite a few WIPs with a blue feel, the bluest being Let's Be Frozen which is being stitched on Cloud Winter Sky using all blue Etoile threads:
And Dragon Eye, a new start for all of four hours back in 2015 and which should become a focus piece in 2024!
So that's my trawl through the theme of blue. I hope you enjoyed it.
Next month's theme is Traditional Samplers :(
