Drawn Thread SAL with Adana

This is my progress thus far. Had to wait for the fabric to arrive since I don't keep a stock of 40 count. This is Lambswool, and I love working on it. The 40 count is a bit hard to see but looks so lovely. I'm using Vikki Clayton silks, which Adana shared with me, and they are a joy to work with. I'm hoping to finish the Lady's Necessaire tonight, and maybe even get a start on the matching fob.

This is not my usual kind of project. I keep very much to working Shepherd's Bush projects, the colors, the visual impact of them. Doing this was Adana's idea, and a great one it was. We all need to expand our experiences, do new things, try out new fibers and fabrics. Now, if I could only find the Lady's Necessaire box to complete the project.

You will love Drawn Thread Debs, they are pretty addictive. Looks lovely. Good on Adana for getting you into something new.
