How about some pictures of what I've been doing? Below is The Yellow House Sampler from Sheepish Designs. I love working on it and looking at it when I'm not working on it.
The fabric is 40-count Iced Cappuccino ... the lightest IC I've ever seen, in fact, and I'm using one DMC thread over two. It's been such a long time since I've worked with regular old DMC that I'd forgotten how much I like it. A little voice in my head is telling me to dunk it in come coffee when I finish. We'll see.
Below is the new pair of socks I'm working on. As you can see, hopefully, the second sock isn't gonna match up exactly with the first. I know the idea is to make them look the same, but I couldn't help myself. I wanted to see how it turns out.
First you see them close-up, and now here's a view as we saw them from the bridge. Pretty cool, huh? I'm pretty sure I need a raft ride.
