TUSAL Plus!

Two posts in one day… wow.

Don’t look for this to happen again any time soon!

Catching up on my blog reading, I realized it’s time for a TUSAL post.  But first, I must share the Mirabilia Round Robin I finished about an hour ago…

This is Mirabilia’s Christmas Elegance in a shadowbox style.  I filled in the lower left corner.  She is gorgeous!

Ok, time for the TUSAL jar….

Yes, this is a multi-purpose picture.

You see my TUSAL jar there.  Well, there’s a lot of green on the top from Christmas Elegance, but I won’t be detailing the other colors quite yet ;)

In the foreground, you see what I was hoping to be one of my next two starts (yes Kelly, Venice will get some stitches this week).  However, I’m not loving the floss on the fabric….

How about a closer look?

Yeah… just not liking that combination.  I was going for something similar to PS Christmas Eve I did a couple years ago:

The colors for Santa’s Night look a bit washed out compared to these.  Hmmm.

I’m seeing two options here:

  • Change floss colors to “cooler” versions to match the grey/purple/blue Thunderstorm linen better.
  • Go for darker fabric that works better with called for floss colors (white/355/646/830/841/3362).

Thoughts?

 

 

 

Another Quick Post

Not much going on ’round here….  I’m checking off my last days of work for the year (7!) and getting the Christmas shopping done mostly online.

I received a lovely gift from the fantastic Goldie.

See it closed:

And now open!

Totally cool, eh?

Also Santa has made an appearance….

Maybe I’ll add his hands tonight….. :D
