Finally completed "Wild Berries" and really like how it turned out. Tomorrow I plan to get over to Cross Stitch Cupboard in Fort Lauderdale to drop this off for framing, along with my Village of Hawk Run Hollow and Shepherd's Bush Green Snowman. Will be great to see the gang there on Tuesday night. Been WAY too long since I joined the stitch-a-long group!
And, I had a package arrive here Saturday full of the most GORGEOUS silks by Gloriana (Tudor silks) as well as (gulp) 50 count Lakeside Linen Vintage Meadow Rue. These were the June sampler of the month selections from The Attic in Arizona, and I can't wait to start this one.
The photos just don't do these silks justice -- they are MUCH brighter in person, as is the linen. I really need a NEW iPhone as I still have the 3GS model. But, if you zoom in you can see just how teensy this 50 count linen is (the color is beautiful). Sorry about my shadow - was taking pics out in the sun to "try" to get the color right. Didn't quite work. Oh well!
And, as you saw earlier -- an inquisitive friend had to come out to see what all the fuss was about. He wasn't too happy that "his" lounge ottoman was being used as my photo studio!
