Eve's Garden

Hey, Friends!
Have you had a ‘fallish’ weekend with lots of rain, clouds, but lower temperatures, too.  High 60s to low 70s feels like a typical early November here. It has felt great – and a great stitching weekend!  I’ve told you (and showed you) before how much morning glories remind me of my ‘first days of school,” and they’re blooming, too.  The local schools' year begins this coming Wednesday.

I picked up the 2013 Just Cross Stitch Halloween issue from my LNS the other day.  There are some really cute designs – but just not ready for Halloween stitching yet.  I put in my order for the Christmas edition.  I didn’t get the Christmas preview edition. Am I missing something great?

What AM I ready to stitch?  I’ve been stitching Shepherd’s Bush, Eve’s Garden, and it has been so long since I posted, it is finished - LL Maritime 36 ct! I did my own conversion to Vikki Clayton’s Hand Dyed Fibers.  I made a couple of other modifications – like Adam’s leaf!  I guess it was the ‘point’ of the leaf, but I HAD to round it off a little.   I also left off the suggested buttons, and changed to color of the verse to a deeper, more red color.  It does change the overall look of the sampler, but I love it.  Thank you so much to Terri from Chocolates for Breakfast for loaning me the chart.  I really loved stitching it.  I do agree with some of Terri’s comments about the symbols.

Thanks for stopping by and saying, Hey!

May 2013 be filled with Happy Stitching!

PeaceLoveJoy

  4. Love your finish... such a pretty design and your changes work too. Loving this weather too. Almost hate to say it out load but I can't believe how little "hot" summer we have actually had. Happy stitching on your next project....

  5. Eve's Garden looks great! Fallish here Saturday but warm again today. I don't think you are missing much with the preview issue. I hope the Christmas one is better. :o)

  7. Lovely finish Charlene. It has been unseasonably cool in Indiana as well. Usually this time of year you can cut the air with a knife. Enjoy the cool weather while it lasts. :)

  12. Beautiful finish, Charlene! I sort of wish I had thought to change Adam's "leaf", but I'll not change it now (it's still not framed)! Your conversion is gorgeous!!

  14. Nicely done, Charlene! Do you have all your stitcheries framed under glass? Our weather is supposed to get cooler tomorrow. This has been a wonderful summer here in the PNW, the best since we've lived here.

  15. It's gorgeous Charlene!! Love the colour conversion you made. HDF silks are great. Our weather cooled off then got hot suddenly. I guess summer hasn't quite left yet!
