Crazy January Challenge – Project #12

Crazy January Challenge
Project #12: Espresso Yourself by Kincavel Krosses
Info: White 18-count aida; Belle Soie silk in Moss; Dinky Dyes silk in 33 Desert Sands

I was originally going to use plain brown and cream, but when I got my silks grab bag from Polstitches, I immediately attached these two silks to this project, replacing the cream with the gorgeous orange shades to add a bit of pizzazz (in much the same way as a shot of espresso does – LOL!) to the project. I also have some beautiful seed beads which I think will bring some gorgeous depth to this sampler. The silks are just wonderful to work with – I love how they feel as I stroke them – I heartily recommend picking some up if you fancy giving your stitching a bit of added luxury!
