8.21.11 Edited to Add Mystery Part III
Rather than another post, I decided to just add this photo to this post. Last night I finished stitching With Thy Needle and Thread Birds of a Feather Mystery Sampler. I'm trying to decide on framing now, and will post again after I decide.
Are you always amazed at how young the girls are who stitched these new reproduction samplers? Take for example, the new one I saw at Shakespear’s Peddler this morning. It’s a red primarily alphabet sampler with a cute verse, and this girl was eight years old! Eight? The eight year old’s I’ve known couldn’t sit still 10 minutes – much less long enough to stitch a letter, much less an alphabet! I know… things are different, times have changed; but eight years old? What do you think?
Remember the mirror I bought at French Hens in Manning a couple of weeks ago? Here’s the beginning of my collage. The left is the Plum Street Sampler freebie that had been made into a pillow, but I couldn’t think of a way to dangle it from the wall J and the right is CHS, Sarah Hook. The little sculpted angel is very hard to see. I’ve had it for years, with no perfect place to hang until now! These are the only two that were already stitched, but there are others to come...
Hope you’re having a joyful, cool weekend filled with your loved ones and lots of stitching time! Thanks for taking time to drop by, and hope to see you again soon!
and Happy Stitching
