Country Life by Scarlet Letter
40ct Sandstone~NPI silks
Maybe it's not only the heat that's wearing me down. What a crazy, conflicted, out of control world we seem to be living in. I can hardly stand to have the news on as there seems to be little good news out there on any continent. I honestly believe that is why we needle workers lose ourselves in our stitching. These pastoral sampler scenes are reminders of simpler times. We need this escapism. It soothes our souls. As I stitch on Country Life from Scarlet Letter, I occasionally yearn for a country life myself, far away from the rat race of the city. I'm envious of those who can look outside and see rolling green hills that are dotted with cows and sheep. Wow, I had no idea what I was going to post about when I sat down. I seem to be feeling melancholy today, so I'll stop.
To answer the comments left on last post about whether I frame my own. I do frame them using archival foam core, light-weight batting, billions of pins, and framer's tape. It's not hard, it just takes some practice. Feel free to drop me an email if you have any questions.
