Gentle friends, I've finished up block eight on AotH .... here's a snperoo..
... I stitched my paternal great grandparent's initials and marriage year into this square - and now that I look at it I think I will go back and stitch the date also - this was his second marriage. He was named after his father (my Great-great grandfather) and my dad was named after him and I was named after my father so I am the fourth to carry the name - not too confusing.
Here's a snap of the entire piece as it stands at the moment..... sorry about the wrinkles....
I made quite a few floss changes. This piece as with most BBD calls for overdyed flosses - I felt that the skeins called for that I had were really much to light or I just didn't like them...whatever...so I converted them to darker shades or colors I like better.
Here is the list with the suggested floss first and my change if any:
CC Avocado no change
CC Gingersnap to GAST Butternut Squash
CC Little Brown House no change
CC Olive Branch no change
CC Onion Skin to GAST Hazelnut
CC Peanut Brittle to CC Pumpkin Harvest
CC Stepping Stones no change
CC Sunkissed to GAST Brandy
CC Tiny Vine to GAST Endive
GAST Lexington Green no change
I think after I finish up the next block I'll go back nd fill in all the dates, initials and other familial information.
Once again it was a lovely cool and breezy weekend here by the Bay. All around us, to the North, South and East Bay the temps were hovering in the low 90's and into the100's, while we were in the low 70's on Saturday and then the temps moved back into the cool upper 60's on Sunday..... thank goodness for the Pacific Marine breeze and fog!!!
There you go sports fans, thanks for stopping by do stop again!!
