Another Confession

I think I've gone to prim side.

I've always said I don't like the prim designs....but then I found some of the European designers (namely, The Primitive Hare and Giulia Manfredini, plus a few others), and I absolutely loved their use of color and design.  As I've mentioned in the past, colors get me every time!  So I was in Joann Fabric over the weekend, and this followed me home...
The little bird on the spool, and the "Winter Sheep"?  Too cute.  I couldn't help myself.  :)

And while I still need to get the little zombie girl finished, I also just had to start something new.
Little House Needleworks' "Hot Cocoa," on a piece of natural 32-ct. linen.  The white DOES show up better IRL - although it was charted for ecru and I swapped in white, since my fabric is a bit more tan than the one used in the model.  (I actually started this twice, because my first choice - a 28-ct. homespun shade - was way too light, and even the brighter white barely showed.)

Obviously the time of year when I get startitis is approaching - cold weather makes me want to curl up and stitch 24/7, and plot new projects.

Hot Cocoa is looking good. It was a fun stitch! Have you ever stitch on Vintage Country Mocha linen? Whites and creams show up well on it. Off to check out that magazine!

I think our tastes change - and Prim now is so much more interesting than Prim of the 1990's - just saying!

I just bought a prim design recently too. I think they've brainwashed us! ;)
