Where or where does the time go to? My good intention is to update this blog regularly, and I'm failing miserably. I could blame it on a number of excuses, like I'm busy designing, reproducing, stitching, and so on. I could blame it on the heat, and the fact that I seek refuge in the pool frequently. My hope is that you will be happy to hear from me, irregardless of the time in between posts.
Say hello to Mary Ann Farmer. I have been secretly calling her the "summer sampler". The colors remind me of all things in that particular season, and is in fact dated August 27th, 1834. You all know I am a fan of red, and I thought these colors would bore me to tears. Quite the opposite happened, it was a very soothing stitch. My fabric of choice for this one is 40ct. Doubloon from Picture This Plus. It has the perfect mellow yellow tone. NPI silks were also used, and the stitch count is 259 x 193. I hope you like her. Charts will be ready within the next two weeks.
After that, we will be heading to the Midwest to see family, antique shop, and eat the foods that we miss from there. I'm excited because we will be taking the motor home for the first time. I have visions of all the nooks and crannies that I can pack (hide) my shopping finds.
I'll do my best to be in touch soon...
