Most sampler patterns include alphabets. It is very rare to find a
Anyway! I enjoyed the quick stitch but am ready to get back into my colors again. Here are two pictures of the piece. First one is completed without the antiquing sprayed on it.
This second picture is after I sprayed it, and I do like the way it came out. I wanted it to look a little rustic.
The dark bottom is from a shadow. Not the spray.
One more picture of just a small portion of it. I am always so happy in my stitching area on a sunny day. This picture shows you how bright it is without any light at all on.
We are staying in during this cold weather. A nice fire going inside and I love soups and stews this time of year. We're so fortunate not to have snow in this area, and since down here, I am a bit spoiled, as I miss the warmer weather we were having. I have plenty to keep me busy inside though..
Welcome to my newest follower, Margaret Lind. A real sweet lady who cross stitches as well.
It's so amazing how time seems to fly by. Here is a picture of a sampler that I did back in 2007. I remember working on it when we were visiting my son, Guy when he was stationed out in Yuma, AZ. It's in our hallway and I walk by it a number of times a day. Today though I realized that it was done nearly twelve years ago. My grandson who is 18 was just five at the time. We were living in Shapleigh, ME at the time and I remember sitting on our back deck stitching on it. I still love the colors in it and it brings back so many good memories. The chart came in a "Just Cross Stitch" magazine that I was getting at the time.
I'll let ya'll go for this time around. Know that I love ya'll and until next time, be well and safe and "Don''t forget to feel the colors".
