Weather-wise, this is pretty much our Spring! This is a page from my calendar. I groaned when I turned the calendar over on May 1 as this picture is a fairly accurate depiction of our Spring weather!
Every time we venture out to get going on the garden, rain soon visits! Oh well. It gives more time to indoor pursuits such as stitching!
A new start - Ann Taylor by Heartstring Samplery. This is an oldie but goodie. I'm destined to stitch a lot of Beth's designs I think!
I am stitching with the recommended DMC floss on 36 count PTP Doubloon linen. I am stitching this with 1 strand over 2.
The Doubloon linen is a new colour and it is absolutely perfect for this piece. At first I had a piece of ready prepared linen that was the right size, but it was a pale grey. I decided to check around my stash and I'm so glad I did because this colour combination is just wonderful. The photos don't do it justice!
Now I have to show you more wonderful stitching from my friend Nicole in Belgium. You will recognize Frances Eden of course! I love sharing her work with you!
I have been catching my breath the last week or so. I lost my work due to budget cutbacks about the same time my boy left home. It's not actually a bad thing in the short term for me to have a break, just hoping it won't be a long one!
Thank you so much for visiting and thank you once again for your kind words and support! They mean a great deal to me! I will leave you these lovely red and white tulips with my thanks!
Until next time...Happy Stitching!
