Stitching on this fabric was a bit of a challenge, so it took me longer than I had anticipated. This is Kitty Cottage Sampler by Little House Needleworks, and I stitched it on Terra Cotta Ragusa, a huge bargain piece from Silkweaver. I knew someday I'd be glad I had it for certain pieces, and I liked the floss toss of this design. I also think I'll do LHN's Thread Pack kit with "Watermelon" chart on this same fabbie. Lord knows... I have plenty of it! Trouble is.... if you've ever used Davosa, you know what I mean by this being a challenge. It's a nightmare to work on. Threads slip underneath so they disappear. But like the determined, petulant child I've remained, I persevered, and although my stitching is not as neat as I like, I do like the overall looks of the piece. There's a rustic nubbiness to the Ragusa that I love with the chart and thread colors.
If you haven't noticed, I'm really stuck on Little House Needleworks designs at the moment. I like the clean, simple looks, but I digress. I jump from one designer of the year to another. Quite a contrast to all the Mirabilias I've collected of which I haven't finished one yet. Oh, the pitfalls I wallow in.
