|Tree of Stitches by Abi Gurden|
The fabric in this picture looks a little strange in color! If you go down through my blog you will see a picture I scanned that shows the color better. It's actually sky color, a very subtle hand dye. I purchased it from the Blended Needle quite a few years ago and thought it would be perfect for the tree, it's 32 count. However, if I were to stitch this design again (and I may just do that!) I'd choose 28 count fabric because that allows for a wider variety of threads to choose from, particularly #8 Perle which was a little thick for the specialty stitches on this count fabric.
