Grey Weekend

This month's IHSW was devoted to Ganesha and I managed to fill in more of the grey.

Ganesha
14ct white aida

I thought I'd share my thread sorter for this project since I'm very pleased with it. I don't use thread sorters because I'm too lazy, I just rewind the thread on the bobbin. But about 3/4 of the symbols are blends and it's way too much trouble trying to keep track of them. So this:


It's just a piece of 14 ct plastic canvas with the key taped to it. It took two tries to get the key sized to the right size so that one symbol=one square. As I said, I'm very smug about this XD.

I'm also a bit bored with all (16!) of my WIPs so maybe I'll start something small today...

The thread sorter is really useful when you have many blends, the one you've made is perfect, great idea!
