After showing my husband the piece I started in my previous post, he commented that he "didn't love" the fabric/floss combination. And then I started to second-guess myself....the thing is, I don't have a lot of options in my stash, and I'm not going to buy anything. So I started pulling every purplish silk I could find, and stitching bits.
Since I couldn't decide, I started something new. And while everyone else stitches snow and hearts, I decided to pull out Bent Creek's "Autumn House" kit (or at least, most of the kit - I found it in a freebie pile at Celebration of Needlework).
