Thank you to everyone for your kind comments about my Sara Schultz finish. You all are so sweet! Oh, and several of you commented on the quilt pictured with Simon and my new threads. I wish that I could say that I made it, but alas, I did not. I bought it in Williamsburg, VA this past summer at the L.L. Bean outlet. The colors were so pretty, and the price so reasonable that I just had to have it. I put it on the daybed in my computer/study/office. The room is the lightest room in the house and it is my little retreat. It is where I read my blogs, study for school and read my latest novel. I love it!
I have been working on several new things lately. Three things to be exact! I have started two new projects and picked up one old WIP. I started the Family Record Sampler and am using roses, pinks, and greens instead of the called for topaz, gold and green. I have been playing around with it a bit and thought that I would use the varigation in the roses. However, today I plan to stitch a rose with less varigation and see what I like better. Here is my progress so far...
I have also joined the Beatrix Potter SAL. That sampler is so beautiful and I have wanted to stitch it for some time. I have not gotten terribly far but here is my progress so far. I am stitching on 32 ct. Antique White and Crescent Colors Bretheren Blue. If you are interested in joining...please do! You can click here! You only have to post progress pics once a month, so it is not an intense SAL.
Finally, I will show you one of my oldies but goodies. It is "Psalm 23" by Vera K. I have stitched another line of verse which is one more than I had! I think that I *might* try to get this one done by the end of the month. We shall see. It is a great stitch to come home to after "one of those days" as a substitute teacher. Keeps me centered!
Well, I think that is about it! Thanks for all of you for stopping by and leaving your wonderful comments! They really do make my day! Till next time...Happy Stitching!
