Summer Stitches - Blue Summer

Summer Stitches - Blue Summer

It's probably not a secret that I love blue. It's a color that pops up regularly in my designs. But even when my final design is in other colors, I usually at some point think to myself, "I wonder what that would look like in blue?"

So, two of my Summer Stitches projects were to re-stitch a couple of my own designs in blues.

First up was Do Come In, which is a perfect design for stitching in your favorite color. There are only two colors in the chart - you just need a dark and a light version of whichever color you choose. No surprise here, I chose blue!

My blue version is stitched on 32 count Attic Lace by Lakeside Linens. I used Weeks Dye Works in Blue Jeans and Morris Blue. Stitched 2 over 2.

(I keep my projects folded in the their project bag until I'm ready to finish them. So I don't iron them until I'm about to lace. Hence, you'll see a lot of wrinkly projects here.)

I bought a little farmhouse white (the actual color is "Heirloom") frame for it from The Rusty Roof on Etsy and I just need to lace it and pop it in there and it's ready to hang.

I've also kitted up Sew Blessed in blues, and I'm planning to start it as soon as I get another smallish design finished. (Hopefully before July is over!) Once it's stitched, I'll share my blue conversion here in my Journal.

At some point I would love to stitch blue versions of Rosamonde Sampler and Socks on the Line as well. But that will probably have to wait for another summer!
