Welcome to TNT - Tiny Needle Tuesday. A lot of new things have cropped up on my sampler:
Look! There is an angel in the upper right (who looks like a New year's Baby with wings or something). There is a peacock! A rabbit! A butterfly that is surprisingly half the size of the weird and skinny lion. The lion looks like he is waving...or scratching his mane...or something. That is what I love about samplers - how quirky they can be. Surprisingly I added the year I stitched this prior to finishing. I guess I am feeling pretty confident I will finish this up before January - lol. Here is a slightly closer-up shot:
All that is left to add is Adam (to the right of the butterfly) and Eve (to the left of the rabbit). The verse will go in between the two blue lines. The verse is stitched over one (meaning over one thread, so since this is 38 count fabric that means 38 stitches to the inch) which may do me in! But, I'm hoping to have this wrapped up by next week. I love the way the colors look muted in this (like hand dyed yarn, hand dyed cotton thread is so nice to use).
It is supposed to be pretty hot today (90's). Originally I was planning to go into the office tomorrow, but I think I will run in today. Tomorrow is supposed to be nice (lower 80's) and better for walking, so I'd rather be home! I have a few things to do at the office and then will run to Trader Joes for a couple of things we can't get at our normal grocery stores. I'll also take a quick look around TJ Maxx to see if there is anything suitable for the wedding.
Hope your week is going well!
