TUSAL and TUPOST - Blogger won't let me post any writing other than the title of this post. I can't add pictures either. How frustrating is that? Hopefully it will come back soon. Happy Stitching Jo who has the longest post title ever!

Thursday 23rd February 18.40 - after 2 solid days of trying to post:

Hooray it's working!!

Here is my TUSAL photo:

TUSAL is posing with Madame Muriel, my page-every-other-day calendar and my framed Periphaeria Star SAL.

I used a nice big frame to show off the lovely Sparklies' fabric.  It is Purpleberry Spludge and the design is stitched over 1 on 28 count.  The frame was a dirt-cheap raw pine one which I coloured with my purple felt tip pen.

Here's another picture to show the purple of the frame (I've had to tweak the brightness to show the frame colour:



And here's a close-up of the bottom part:



It's funny how the density of the stitches affects the colour.  All the purple is the same skein of DMC 333 but where there is a single line of stitches it looks much paler than where there is solid stitching.  I've only noticed this effect on this piece of work.

  11. haha awesome title! Glad Blogger sorted itself out. I've actually noticed that effect. Depending on what colors are around and make up the completed piece, a thread that looked pink when it was on its own starts to look orange! It's crazy!
