VOHRH Stitching and some stash

Well I worked in rotation so Tuesday is VOHRH (Village of Hawk Run Hollow - Carriage House Samplings, thanks for stopping by Jan!!) I really like the subtle colour changes in the greens of these trees. Here is a snap of last nights work.

It looks kind of funny with just the stumps of the trees, like it has been clear cut or something!!

I also received my overdyed floss for "Forgiveness." I had ordered it from Drema at Needlecraft Corner. She came through again with my order!!!! As you remember "Forgiveness" is charted for silk in HDF by Vicki Clayton. I want to frame and hang both "Forgiveness" and "Serenity " together so I recharted in the same colour scheme in overdyed floss' so that when these pieces are next to each other they will be a pair. Here is a snap of the pile of floss Drema sent me.

You can see that I stayed with the pale greens, peach and golden yellows that Vilma originally charted in silk. I am really excited about getting started with this piece on Saturday where it falls into the rotation list. I put the floss' on the linen that this will be stitched on which is a great match with "Serenity."

Last night on TCM they showed the 1939 MGM masterpiece.... "Wuthering Heights." (Back to the those great B&W classics!!) What a great movie and superb performances by Lawrence Olivier, Merle Oberon, Flora Robson and Geraldine Fitzgerald.
If you had not had a chance to see this I HIGHLY recommend this movie.

Thats about it for today, thanks for stopping by
....and remember I always appreciate those great comments!!!

Take care,

All those pale greens, peach and golden yellows look so yummy. I have this overwhelming urge to fondle them. {Ha}{Ha}
