Quaker Faith Hope Love

This is a quick post to show you my first Quaker project:
Design: Quaker Faith Hope Love
Designer: Midnight Stitching
Fabric: 32 count Silkweaver Desert Sky Belfast Linen
Fibers: Hand Dyed Fibers silk
It was a fast stitch, finished in only four days using the new variegated silks by HDF - the BE colours.
Faith is stitched using BeSmurfed. I was expecting this to be an all blue colour from the picture and description instead of blue/blue green that you see but as with all hand dyed products, dyed lots can varied so even though it wasn't what I expected, I'm not too fussed. I think it's rather pretty, don't you think so? I can assure you the colour is so much more vibrant in real life.
As mentioned last post, Hope is stitched with BeCreamed. You can see it more clearly in this picture compared to the last one.
Lastly, my favourite of all the three BE is BeRedded. I'm officially in love with this red. It's beautiful!
As usual, it has been a pleasure stitching with Vikki Clayton's silk. With this done, I really think I should be getting back to Esperanza. I've delayed long enough.

Beautiful! I love stitching with silks too. I'm just finishing up a goldwork piece worked on silk dupion with rajmahal artsilks. So lovely to touch and stitch! I'l love to get some real silk threads next.
