I Feel Pretty
Oh so Pretty
I Feel Pretty and Witty and Bright!
The sampler is Marlene's sampler by Romy in Austria. Here is my progress.
See what I mean? She is not a very big sampler (127 x 127) but she is packed with stitching and lovely colours! I have a tiny floss dilemma. Compare the first photo with the next photo which is what the finished piece should look like.
The alphabets are stitched in OWS' Cats Eyes. The problem is my floss does not have much of varigation in it so the letters just disappear into the linen (see lower right). I didn't really notice that until I turned the OTT light off! So, I'm not sure what I will do yet. What do you think?
Oh yeah, and while you're comparing the photos, note the basket in mine is not all blue. *sigh* By the time I noticed that the basket was all done in that light brown and I did not have the heart to frog it all out. Instead I made up for it by filling it in with the blue.
Here on the home front it's been a weird week. Sometimes life hands you some worries and one has to ride them out! We have some sunshine today which is a good thing! We have signs green sprouting everywhere!
Thank you for visiting with me. Your comments are always a gift! Have a wonderful week!
