Before I started the Anns, (Miss Hicks has been temporarily kicked to the curb), I started Lucy Maria Wiggin from the Scarlet Letter, shown below. I love the look of the design, but I'm so not a pastel fan. I didn't have the green fabric like the original, so I pulled out a piece of Sienna Night from Lakeside.
I tried to use the charted colors, I really did try. But, after doing a small section of border and the whole bowl of berries, I couldn't make myself go on. I ripped it out and started over. I'm choosing the colors as I go, something I've never done before. I'm not sure if I like it better or not. You can see the original colors of the border that I've yet to remove. At least it will be my own version if nothing else.
In between watching both the Coyotes (series tied 2-2) and the Suns (series tied 1-1) playoffs, I found another silhouette on EBay. It reminded me of my sons when they were younger, even though they wouldn't have been caught dead dressed like that. AND, they certainly would never have held hands.. Pummeling and punching each other would be more like it. Okay, maybe it doesn't remind me of them so much, but I like it anyway.
