Tales from the Q-Snap

Hello Friends. Thought I would pop in with an update on my newest project. After pondering over a couple of projects from my last post, I decided on something totally different.....
It is Quaker Diamonds by Rosewood Manor. I got this chart last year and decided, on a whim, to convert the threads it is charted for to DMC. After a quick run to Hobby Lobby for those threads, I got busy stitching away. I am loving this project! I'm using a "mystery" linen that is hand dyed in neutral/natural tones. I can't wait to get this one stitched and framed. Already have the spot on the wall picked out.

Thanks for looking and Happy St. Patrick's Day too!

That is very pretty - your conversion looks perfect. I think I may have to look at some of the Rosewood Manor charts.....

Great choice! I have that one, but it is still deep in the drawer... Maybe you will entice it to come out! Missed seeing you on Saturday.
