Good Morning All,
It's a damp morning. Still dark, so I can't really see if it is doing anything out there just yet...but my computer says sleet off and on for the next 2 hours. Fun...or not so much.
Let's see what's happening in the TNT world. A bit of stitching was done on each of the 3 pieces in current rotation for me, but both the Praise Loudly Blame Softly and the Crazy Long Legged Bird pieces only got a little love and not really enough to show. Ellen Harrison is the one that really grabbed my attention in the last week.
I was so happy to finish the top portion of this sampler.
It cracks me up how she ran out of room for the last word in the second line...so it went on the top line (youth). The whole line reads "Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth." Next I stitched the red and white border under that row and then the fun started...finally! I was at the point where I started the motifs below the wording.
Just a start, but it was fun! There are birds, a boat, some plants, etc. to stitch. Then a big white house and an even bigger stag. Proportions don't really count for much in samplers which I think adds to the charm of a piece.
I've shown this previously, but here is a look at what the sampler will look like when I finish it:
Well, the weather is supposed to be pretty much crap all day long...rainy and temps hovering in the low to mid-forties, but by evening it will get up to 50. Colin is stopping by for dinner one last time tonight, and it will be wonderful to see him again. We plan to just order from a new local Mexican restaurant.
Have a great Tuesday!!
