Our summer has fitted snugly into the month of August. I think we might have had a few days of rain but not much. It's hard to believe it's almost the end of August but I must confess I am looking forward to Fall!
Here's my small finish this week - the "Silk Sampler" by Birds of a Feather.
Here is she, quite a handsome piece.
Gabi, you had asked about what silks I am using. They are all Silk N Colour. They are: Finnegan's Fog, Aqua Clouds, and Burnished Gold. I had a lot of problems with this silk shredding on me. I've never had it happen quite so often before. I was thankful that this was a small sampler to stitch!
Now, here is a small piece I had framed. I actually found this frame for $15 and thought it was so funky!
Framed is "Good Cheer" by The Goode Huswife. I thought it was just perfect for the frame!
Daisy: Hey, look at me! Take a picture. Aren't I cute?
Daisy: OK, you can go now. I'm bored with you paparazzi!
Thank you for your lovely comments from the last post. I want to answer a couple of questions/comments:
(1) The design on my blog header is called "A Very Fine Sampler" by Birds of a Feather. While it's an old design, it's still in print so you can order it from your needlework shop.
(2) The frames I use are ALL wood. I don't use metal frames. Some of the frames have finishes that make them look like they might be metal, but they are not.
(3) I have a little quirk regarding putting together my sampler walls. I keep the frames in each sampler wall cohesive in colour so I won't mix a brown frame with a silver frame, for example. As you can imagine, sometimes it takes me awhile to put together the pieces that I think will 'fit' together.
OK, that's me for another week. Work is keeping me busy but it's ok. It pays for my framing! (I'll be showing more framing but bit by bit so you'll come by, right?)
Thank you for visiting! Enjoy the rest of August, then hello, September!
