I'm stitching my Shiny and Brite project for a couple of hours each day.
A new development...have been having an ache in my neck so I've had to limit how long I spend with head bent over my cloth. A sign of the age, I guess.
But I'm aided in this effort a little by how dark the evenings are...I've given up stitching at night in the meantime. Which is probably good for my neck as well as my stitches. A little novel for me to actually watch t.v.
I'm a DMC floss fan. In particular, I'm fond of the variegated threads like these...
I think these have very much suited a design like Shiny and Brite because the ornaments would show different shades of colours as they turn and reflect the light.
DMC has a wonderful site that is one I check out from time to time. A link is here
They offer hundreds of free patterns and tutorials on a wide array of projects. I also read the DMC blog by Emma who is talking Valentine's these days and includes a number of projects from various sites featuring a heart theme like the one below from the wonderful Stitching Dreams site. I follow that site too by the way.
