Hello wonderful happy friends..
Firstly Thank You very much for all your smiley comments about my 2014 Round up.. I still cannot believe how much stitching I actually did! If you missed it, the link is HERE :)
I wanted to show you all my wonderful Stitchers Verse I am currently stitching.. although I have been referring to it as a sampler!
For those who missed where its from.. its from Cross Stitch Collection magazine Oct/Nov 1999 issue. Its designed by Charland Garvin and hmm ok in the magazine it does say its part of the sampler collection! So its fine for me to call it a sampler! I decided to stitch it on 28 count linen in a mulberry colour using all the DMC and specialty threads the design calls for (gifted to me by a lovely stitching friend).
Here is my journey so far... lol not a lot left to do!
I literally only have the border to do! I wanted to show you the photo in the magazine next to my stitching.. I am blown away at the difference..
See what I mean...
The magazine really does not show the colours off at all... and here is a clearer look at the border I have to stitch..
I am REALLY enjoying this project and so pleased I had the opportunity to stitch it.
Jon, my amazing husband is searching for some charms to add to my project once complete.... the design calls for a stitching hoop, a needle, a thimble and some scissors. Not really an area we have looked at before... so if your a charmer.. hee hee I mean if you use charms and know where I may get these from, preferable one place as its easier (for me!) I would love you to leave a comment :)
I have been thinking about 2015 and what I want to achieve.... hmm maybe not the right word. What I would like to stitch and yes complete! Next year Han will be 20... OH MY!! Where do the years go? So I would dearly love to stitch her something to cherish and keep.. something that will 'follow' her everywhere and when she looks at it, she will always smile knowing I made it for her. If you have any ideas on this.... yes you guessed it... leave a comment!
Also thinking about New Year... as hmmm at the moment there seems to be many things swimming around my head! Well we are bloggers from all over the world... here right now its Tuesday 30 th December 8.30pm... yes I am in England. But this got me thinking.. there are many of you out there that are in different time zones.. Oh I am sorry if you have already thought of this.. but I am rather odd and well its on my mind! So anyway... all in different time zones.... that means some of you will celebrate New Year well before I do.. I think? So as I dont want to leave any one out...
Tomorrow here it is New Years eve,... is that actually a day? I know we get Christmas eve.. have I just made that up? Oh what on earth am I like? Its the thought of another year gone I guess?!
What ever your doing, where ever your going, who ever your with...
Happy New Year! I hope 2015 brings happiness and many many smiles :)
If this is too early.. oppps! And well I guess on my next post will be about something else! hee hee
