Gentle Friends, for some reason I couldn't get onto Blogger yesterday so that I could leave a Post. It was quite frustrating!!!
Over the weekend I finished up Miss Mary, so I finally can start something else without all the guilt of the WIP basket looming there next to my stitching chair!!! So here's a snaperoo of this really super sampler...
"Mary Ann Hutton 1801 - Christmas Sampler"
36ct Days Gone By - my conversion to Belle Soie
I am not sure why but for some reason it looks all green on my monitor, trust me it is not on a green ground, but a lovely mottled tan. As you can see I decided to stitch my initials and date instead of going full repro - since I deviated so far from repro-ville I figured why not. I stitched that number "3" a couple of times and am still not too happy with it, I may go back and re-do it again. This was a super piece to work on, now I am thinking of what my next SL piece will be, there are so many I have already in my stash the decision will take a little while, but I think I know what I want to start.
Over the weekend I really didn't do too much. A really good Friend of mine in North Carolina sent us some raw red peanuts, you just can not get them out here in the far west...
he knows one of our favorite things is candied or sugar peanuts... so I got out the old skillet
and made a big ole batch of them. It is a wonder how the miracle of sugar, water and the peanut can make such a delicious treat!!!
They are easy to make and so good!!!!!
That's about it for today sports fans. Thanks for stopping by, do stop again!!
