For another day I worked with the black thread, number 310, or as the French would say "Noire". Just in the right  mood for Halloween ;-)

Finished working with the black thread I had started using the last time. Concentrated on working more to the right of the gobelin. Here:

I started it!!! My first thread of choice was number 3021 (F.Y.I. I am only going to be working with DMC threads on this gobelin, so whenever I refer to a number - it is from their pallet). I really like how the gobelin began, hope you do too :-))

I put all 26 colours into their own envelopes (each colour has its own envelope) and that took the whole day!!! I did not think it will take that long, but it did - oh, well, c'est la vie ;-)

These are all the materials I bought for the new gobelin I shall be working on - it is a landscape of the Nativity Memorial Church near the town of Shipka (in Bulgarian: Храм-паметникът „Рождество Христово“, известен като Шипченски манастир). I hope you will join me in the journey ahead as I work towards this gobelin of immense beauty:
