|Plum Street Samplers Viktor & Irina |
stitched on 32 ct LSL Vintage Pearled Barley
using DMC floss
As you can see, I left those little flowers in the original pale peach colour. They are much more visible in real life. I've enjoyed working on this piece so much and I'm really going to miss it!
I have a few new pieces coming to me in the mail that I purchased with birthday money so I'll wait to start anything new until they arrive.
I'm hoping to take in my Shakespeare's Peddler Magic Garden Sampler to have it framed in the next few weeks. I really want to hang this one in my home soon. It's a lovely summer design.
I'm afraid I really haven't done any other stitching lately. I'm busy cleaning up the yard and house right now. My boys will be coming out next weekend to weed and plant my front garden for me which will be a big help.
In the meantime I'm spending a lot of my free time reading. It's been too long since I've picked up a book. In the past two weeks I've finished off two Tess Gerritsen novels, The Keepsake and The Bone Garden. Both were excellent. This weekend I picked up Dan Brown's new release Inferno thanks to a gift certificate from my youngest son for Mother's Day. I'm just getting started at it and it's already grabbed me.
I'm stitching away at my May ornament for the SAL now and enjoying being out in the gazebo once more. Clarisse is enjoying it too!
