I have my first finish of the year!
Lo, how a Rose
from the book "A Cross-Stitch Christmas - Celebrations in Stitches"
by Better Homes and Gardens
I'm very happy with how it turned out. It's stitched on 35 ct WDW "Linen" linen, with recommended WDW floss but I threw it a few odds and ends colours from my stash. The colours in real life are actually brighter than what the photo is showing.
Now, because you were all so kind with your compliments about my sampler wall, I'm going to
torture show you another photo which I was able to take without all the glare. I didn't realize the previous shots I took were also a bit fuzzy too.
That's a bit better!
Now, I just started my next project last night, not much to show. I will do that next week. I won't even tell you what it is because I might change my mind! I'm thirsting for colour though! And the colour I want is RED!
Red Samplers I heart:
- Ann Rayner - broke down yesterday and ordered it, complete with silks from Attic
- Ann Grant - waiting for the release from Nashville Market
- Jane Tindall - have the chart, now I got to get silks and linen together
- Sarah Elizabeth Brookes - this is one that the talented Tanya showed as the lovely early Christmas she got and may be reproduced one day soon! Yes, please!
Anyway, dreaming of these Red samplers keeps me going through the dull days of winter!
Now, a couple of photos of cuteness.
For some reason, Julius always go on the man-chair, and Daisy, my chair! Oh, I need to learn how to relax like those kitties!
Thanks again for stopping by! Enjoy the last week of January!!!
