Hello everyone, thought it was time to show an update of Ann Priest 1841. I've finished with all the over one, and just have a row of motifs across the top to go. The frame is on order, so I'm anticipating the release for later in the month. I am still smitten with the wee red alphabet, and even though it's tiny, it went very fast using a tent stitch. I 've used Sampler Threads throughout on vintage Meadow Rue.
I'm anxious to start the model for a new Christmas sampler design. I've had the idea bouncing around inside of my head, and since it's too hot to venture very far, I was able to get it charted. I think some thought I was crazy last year to design Jingle All The Way on Swamp, lol. This time I'm using Camofudge. Definitely not your traditional Christmas colors.
It has been two months since my surgery, and while the healing progress is v-e-r-y slow, there is progress to report. Each day enables me to raise my arm just a bit higher. I have had a great deal of pain recently from all the physical therapy. There's nothing to do, but continue to stretch and work hard. I jokingly told my therapist that there's nothing he can do to hurt me that a glass of wine won't fix :)
This little Uncle Sam is one of my favorite pieces of Eldreth Pottery.
Have a happy and safe 4th of July!
