Blackbird Designs- Summer Basket
30ct 2over2 Gentle Arts & WDW
With little time spent in my sewing room of late, I have enjoyed stitching in the family room & chatting of an evening. I am enjoying some cross stitch, starting some new & finishing that Blackbird Designs sampler that has been hanging around. It is lovely to have it finished & now a visit to the framer will be in order.
I have been stitching away on this pear..
With Thy Needle & Thread- Partridge in a Pear Tree
32 ct Flax 1 over 2, DMC threads
And the Jenny Bean Halloween Sampler from Shakespeares Peddlar arrived in the mail. It will be stitched on 40ct Flax with these gorgeous Sampler Threads. Several people have completed it in blogland, and I just adore it's quirkiness. I will add a label that I stitched it in my 50th year...I suppose it will be a half century sampler as opposed to all those birth samplers we stitch! I sometimes wonder why I am attracted to these fine linens...my glasses are going to be Magoo-like before too much longer & I spend hours day dreaming about magnifiers. My optometrist gets a big smile every time I walk in!
The kindness of your comments on my previous post was so supportive. We have had a challenging few weeks here, hopefully life will soon settle a bit.
