I'm afraid I've still got nothing to show this month. Fate is working against me and it's almost as if I doomed never to stitch this chart.
I'm very annoyed and upset at the moment because I put my faith in somebody to create a piece of hand-dyed fabric suitable for the background of Scarlet Macaw Preening and she failed to deliver on so many levels. Emails indicated that she would try to recreate the background colours but I ended up with a piece of fabric more of a salmony-orange colour with a tiny hint of purplish-grey. I am not impressed and extremely disappointed.
So..... I'm now going to dye my own piece of fabric. I've ordered a meter of cream Zweigart aida and five bottles of Rit dye liquid in cocoa brown, dark green, cherry red, tangerine and golden yellow. I'm going to spray or perhaps even daub theses onto the aida to create my own background. I've booked next weekend to do it so hopefully I'll be able to post the results soon after.
In the meantime I shall enjoy reading about your progress for March and hope you've had more success than me.
Love and hugs from a very unhappy
