DUCJC Day 24

Today is a pick I was really looking forward to. I not only love the pattern but I love the fabric. Enough teasing about it...let's see what it is...
This is Elegant Squid from Ink Circles. She was setup at PALs 2014 and for some reason this pattern just screamed Buy me. Then I found this fabric and I just had to stitch it on. So here is my progress...
The fabric is a Hand Dyed by Stephanie. It's a 28ct Jobelan evenweave. The color is called Glastonbury Tor. It's a bit darker than the photo. You know how photos never do our stitching justice. I'm using DMC 501 and 504. I really enjoyed working on this one and look forward to getting back to it.

Tomorrow is another Erica Michaels piece but not a tiny one this time. I'm actually not using DMC so that will be a fun change.

  19. You are so right about the fabric - it's perfect for the design. And for the two colors you stitch it with. I love the 500 greens. Whenever I see such gorgeous fabric I feel the urge to buy a couple of pieces of these hand-dyed beauties. And I think soon I will :)
