Hortulus, Stitching in Progress

My apothecary monk is growing on my fabric and I'm quite happy with the fabric and floss choices for him. I'm stitching one strand of silk floss over each square of 18 count aida in the color Parchment, after all what else would a monk use? :)

The brown floss is a gorgeous brown from HDF called Exemplar Cocoa Bear, the gold is Soie d'Alger #2526 and the smoke is also HDF Earth-Stars #5219.


  1. i love it and i love HDF the best fibers around.

  2. Thanks barbara, HDF is fantastic isn't it? I'm constantly amazed at the colors she achieves.
