It's been a long while since I couldn't wait to get some stitching done but the last week or so I've spent more time stitching than on the laptop. Now that's an achievement for me! The reason...well I made some money on Ebay and finally bought the thread and fabric I needed to start our wedding sampler. We'll be married 4 years this March so it's been a long time coming.
I'm stitching an out of print Dimensions kit called United In Love. I first saw it in a magazine review when I was still in school and I still have that ripped out page! When I finally wanted to stitch it and couldn't find it, I managed to get hold of the chart and instructions. The rest I've had to make up myself. Converting the threads to DMC from Dimensions, getting the right fabric and finding out about candlewicking thread. I couldn't get hold of any but read that I could use perle cotton instead so we'll have to see how that works.
You can't really tell from this picture how detailed all the white stitching is. Up closer it looks like lace.
