One to show, one in the works, and six adorables

 
 Here is the one to show.  Ann Topley 1802 is heading to shops.  The antique was stitched on a coarse natural linen, but I thought it would be fun to do something different, so I went with 36ct. Double Dyed Black Forest from Lakeside.  I kept the thread colors true to the original, but opted to use sampler threads from The Gentle Art.  I love, love, love how the colors stand out.  The stitch count is 122 X 181,  and the GAST's needed are:  Claret, Old Brick, Terra Cotta, Pebble, Soot, Old Red Paint, Sarsaparilla, Chamomile, Pomegranate, Mustard Seed, Old Hickory, Roasted Marshmallow, and Picnic Basket.  It is all over two with the exception of the word sin, which is over one.  An eyelet stitch over four is used for a row of letters and the checkered band below that.

 
 I'm trying to get the model done for my next release, but life keeps getting in the way.  It will be done this month at some point, and will be called Sleigh Rides and Snowflakes. 


The grand kids were all decked out and ready for treats last night.  Above are Kai, Olivia, and Remy.

 
Here are Rowan, Quinn, and Sawyer hiding behind the mask.  I hope they save some chocolate for Grandma.

Good job on this one Tanya! I love it too and the colors do pop on the dark linen. Will give it a try!!!!

Those kids are darling and I bet they had fun in AZ. Our Halloween night was raining cats and dogs so not many goblins out.

Keep up the great sampler charting. Wish I could stitch faster.
