She reminds me of the look my cat Daisy sometimes has - the "I am not listening to you" look! The design has lots of lovely colours, like this tulip.
Altogether I am astonished that I finished this piece in a week!
by Plum Street Sampler
on 36 count Vintage Tarnished Silver using CC floss (all recommended)
This was such a fun stitch. What helped was listening to this audio book - Bloodroot, by Amy Greene. While the story was depressing, it was engaging and the book was read / performed by a wonderful cast. Having an absorbing story really helps my stitching. After finishing this book, I tried listening to three others which all got tossed into "another day" pile before I settled on The Unbearable Lightness of Scones, by Alexander McCall Smith. I am currently listening to The Wild Things, by Dave Eggers.
In my last post I showed photos of a group of unframed samplers but I neglected to name each piece, so I am here to remedy the situation.

I don't know when I will get these babies framed since I'm not working much. Instead, as you can tell, I am on a stitching binge. (Happy Happy Joy Joy!)
It's been raining incessantly, or so it seems, since the middle of the night. It's a very good excuse to stitch some more!
Thank you for visiting me. I especially appreciate the comments on my last post. It's fun to hear how each of you thinks of September. Some laments the loss of summer weather, some loves September as the 'real' start of the year,, some looks forward to Spring! I loved hearing it all!
Now...what shall I stitch next? Come back next week and find out!
Have a wonderful week ahead! Happy Stitching!
