Contrary to what I`d planned, in the end I didn`t have any time left to write another post before going on holiday, so I`m catching up now that we`re back (after 4 awesome weeks in Hungary... but I won`t bore you with details, it`s sufficient to say, again, that the holiday was AWESOME!). After arriving home last night, I found some lovely stitchy magazines piled up on the carpet, and the first one I opened was issue 113 of Gold, with Durene Jones` sunflowers on the cover. Although the colour palette is not one I`d have chosen if I had been to pick a picture for myself, yet I loved this project for its technical merits: it only uses a few colours, it grows pretty quickly and the beads add a nice change to the usual finishing touches.
I hope you`ve all had a lovely summer, happy stitching!
