Delivering Spring Blossoms, Homespun Elegance
This is a fun stitch. I am doing it on a really lovely piece of 28 county Lugana from Silkweaver called Astor.
I finished the Valentine from Sitchy Box on the fabric that was included in their 28 Days of February box. I used GAST Cranberry.
I also framed the Beekeeper by Plum Street Samples. I used the tea to darken the mat a little. I got the frame and mat at a local thrift store and the mat was too white. It is a little better now as it looks a little more brownish/yellow in person.

Well, I am just sick about the progress of my current sampler that I am enjoying so much. I did not measure accurately and the fabric is not wide enough as a result. I am going to make adjustments to the pattern as I simply cannot bear to give up on it and I am certainly not going to frog all that I have done and risk running out of the silk threads. It will be off-center, but what the heck. I think I will be OK, but what a mess I made for myself. I am hoping it does not damped my enthusiasm for this piece. So I have decided to complete the house which is the main focus of the piece, then the border and worry about the other motifs when I figure out how much room I will actually have.
I think that is it until March. While I think I am enjoying the Stitch from Stash 2017A (as is my budget) I am missing the package deliveries. Crazy isn't it. I am also trying to keep my WIPs down and I think I am getting a little bored. I also realize that I do not have a Chatelaine piece going.....perhaps I will start one in March.
Thanks for visiting.
