Greetings on a gloomy, overcast day from AZ. I love these days. We feel like we're experiencing fall weather like the rest of the country, but it will be 77 degrees this afternoon, so maybe not so much.
First of, I'd like to show you a new design called, Sleigh Rides and Snowflakes. I stitched the model on 40ct, vintage Pearled Barley from Lakeside. I need to stress that my fabric was very grey, it does not have as much pink as the norm. I have the luxury of being able to see linen in person, but I realize that not everyone does, and dye lots are often not the same. I would suggest that if you can't find similar Pearled Barley, a natural linen would work great. Threads needed are all from The Gentle Art: Dried Thyme, Forest Glade, Country Redwood, Wood smoke, Tin Bucket, Chalk, Picnic Basket, Wood Trail, Deep Forest, and Espresso Bean.
Please let this proud grandma brag a little about granddaughter, Quinn. Over the weekend, she became the AZ state champion on bars for Level 2, Child D Group. She also took 2nd place on beam and vault, and 4th on floor. In the All-Around, she took 2nd place. The team is the Level 2 state champions. Way to go, girls!
Have a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving!
