A Little Stitchin'

Gentle Friends, I missed yesterday posting the stitching I've gotten done on "Plantation Sampler"... 
so here's a snaperoo...


... I took this shot of the sampler during the day with mostly filtered foggy daylight.  We were overcast all weekend so there was no bright sunlight.  To last weeks "Stitchin' " post the question came up about some of the lighter colours I'm using- for the letters"L" "M" and "N" - the silk colour is "Apricot."  It is very light and does not show very well in a photo.  It's like the big "Z" and the small "a" - that colour is "Sagebrush," another very light colour.  I'm going to just leave them until the end and then I may change out the colours for something a little darker.  Sorry about the wrinkles, but they really show in natural light!!  :)

I like your idea to look at the finished project before changing up the colors Edgar. I have changed several colors lately as they just did not suit my taste. I am working on Prairie Schooler Knock Knock and hope to finish it tomorrow.
