TUSAL for February

Hard to believe but I have been stitching and I have added to my ort jar. The bottom part is from Chinese Garden and the top part for Deep Blue Sea. So here is my pic.

And here is my Deep Blue Sea by Chatelaine. It is stitched on 28 ct lugana that I hand dyed myself. I couldn't purchase a blue in lugana like I wanted, so, what the hey, I did it myself. I'm almost done with part one. I just need to do the backstitching and the specialty stitches.
I hope I can get it and part 2 done by the end of the month, but it will be a close thing.

Thanks for stopping by.

You did an excellent job dyeing the fabric and the Deep Blue Sea stitching is gorgeous.

The dyeing of the frabic looks good, well done. Deep Blue Sea is looking lovely. And good progress on your ort jar.

Keep up the great work.

Oh, shoot, Jan. Now you're making me sorry I'm not stitching Deep Blue Sea also. Hmmmmm.

Your hand-dyed fabric is to die for--hee! Love the color--I'll pick your brain for the recipe when I see you next.

Beautiful work! Loving Deep Blue Sea. You're brave for hand dyeing the fabric!
