Another weekend is here!
We have a few things lined up, the big one being a party for my FIL's 75th birthday tomorrow and I need to sort somethings out for it. But before things get too busy I just thought I'd let you see my progress on the Stacy Nash sampler I started a few weeks back. I'm making slow headway though as the osnaburg is tough on the old eyes.It should be worth the effort - I hope I can do it justice as I'm prone to making mistakes when counting stitches!
Another reason why the Stacy Nash sampler is coming along slowly is that I let myself be waylaid, because I've been trying my hand at designing a spring sampler based on a verse found in the Song of Solomon 2 v11~ this is my first attempt but it isn't prim enough for my liking ~
So it was back to the grid paper and a change of thread colors and this is what I finished up yesterday. I tea stained it for an aged look but not entirely sure about that lol!
The main thing I love about this is that for the first time I got to stitch on REAL linen 28ct and to my surprise (after a few false starts!!) I found it lovely to work on! So from now on I'll use linen and I have to thank Lisa for helping me out here and sending me some linens to try!
Thanks so much Lisa!
Here's wishing everyone a lovely (almost Spring like) weekend!
