It's the Mary Gibson's 1824 Sampler from the Haselmere Museum. I decided to stitch it on WDW "Straw" 35 ct linen. I happen to have a lovely piece hanging around and decided to use it. It's much more gold than what shows up in the above photos. I am also using silk from my stash and this trial-and error approach has caused a lot of frogging when I am trying out colours to use! A bit frustrating and time consuming but I am happy now how things are looking.
As you can see, it's gonna to take me quite awhile to finish this one! Although I am usually a one project kinda gal, I may be taking breaks from it to do smaller pieces. We shall see how my patience holds up!
Next up, I asked KarenV to finish one of my small pieces for me. The next two are her photos. She did a wonderful job and I just love it! Thanks Karen!
More framing! Actually, this next one is a re-use of an old frame. I had something stitched in aida, and when I saw that this Prairie Schooler piece fitted so well, I got my framer to do the switcheroo for me. Recycle and Reuse!It's the last day of the Labour Day long weekend here. The weather is gorgeous and it has the beginnings of that lovely Fall nip in the air though still warm during the day. The kiddies, little & big, will be starting the school year tomorrow. Usually we see some traffic chaos the first two weeks of the month until people settle into a routine. Drive safely and enjoy the week!
