I've finished the Reindeer and started on JBW Designs' The Queen Bee. This one will be a little bigger at 2.5". The needle pictured is a Bohin #28 to give some sense of scale.
Stitched with Inca Gold and Olivine.
Stitched with Cocolat
I've finished up with my samples using Northern Lights and Olivine. I has have an early photo of what I'm working on for the Cocolat. This is the continuation of working some of Judy at JBW Designs, lovely little tone-on-tone designs.

French Country Pear - #169

French Country V - #159
Work in progress with Cocolat
If you look at the JBW Alphabet Pumpkin in the photos of a previous post you'll see the Cocolat as the stem (and the Olivine as a tiny vine).
Here is the set of Series #1 colors (remember, photos online never do them justice).
Here are two lovely little JBW Designs perfect for stitching with Soie Surfine. Both are stitched over one one 40 count Graziano Ricamo Ivory. I like this particular fabric for over one with the Soie Surfine because it's a dense bodied fabric. The pieces are very small, when I cut the fabric I stitched the Amour design on a piece 3x4 and just held it in my hand. The pumpkin was just a slightly larger piece of fabric at 4x4. I've not yet decided how to finish them off, I may turn them into a fob or one of my soldered necklaces. Time will tell. But I thought you would enjoy seeing more samples of what you can do with your hand-dyed Soie Surfine from the Society of Soie Surfine!
