Happy Monday to you! I will jump right in and show you my progress on the Seven Sheep Sampler.
I am using Vintage Sand Dune linen and the colour is a lot darker than what you see in the photos. In the lower left hand of the first photo you will see my "test patch" as the Italian Gold silk was not showing up too well. This is not evident in the photo but, trust me, the colour just melts into the linen so I am choosing various floss that I have on hand as a replacement.
I am so enjoying this sampler it's hard to put it down but evidence of my enthusiasm is showing up in the form of a stiff neck! So I gotta take more breaks. I just noticed this last photo is not that clear. Sorry about that. I took the photos using my phone so maybe my hands were not so steady on that last one.
I was contacted by a new blogger last week, Frances of A Symphony of Stitches. Please visit Frances and have a look at her wonderful ornaments!
I am a bit heavy-hearted today. I have a good friend whose birthday is a few days before mine and we always have a small celebration together. We got together today after not having seen each other for a few months. Her husband has terminal cancer so it was a somber catch-up.
I will leave you with some beautiful cherry blossoms casting their magic over our fair city.
Thanks for stopping by. Give those close to you an extra hug today!
