Happy New Year to you all! I've had precious little stitching time recently. Partly due to the holidays, and partly because I came down with a nasty bout of the flu on the day after Christmas. Our entire family caught it one right after another. It was a miserable couple of days. The only good thing is that it helped kick start the annual January 1 diet. I'm not a big goal person, but it's always nice to start a new year. After the Christmas stuff gets put away, I always tear into cupboards, closets, and drawers, and reorganize. As much as I love the coziness of my Christmas decorating, it feels so good to throw out or donate unused things, and get my house back to normal.
Above is my progress on The Ann Rayner Sampler ~1839~ from Threads Through Time. This is such a pretty sampler. I'm using Lakeside's Buttercream , as charted but converted to NPI. The man's face is stitched over one, as are the small sheep.
Below is my take on the Prairie Schooler alphabet that I'm stitching along with this group. I'm doing it on 30ct. Legacy Linen over one. It's fun, but I try not to think about the 25 additional blocks. I'm SWP (stitching without pressure) on this one. If it takes me a year to finish, so be it.
Recently, I've had several new visitors leave comments. Thank you very much for taking the time to say hello. I am very, very behind in catching up with my blog reading, but I look forward to visiting you , too.
