Gentle Friends, over the weekend I finished up Hannah and here's a snaperoo...
Timeless Designs "Hannah Beeby 1816" Sampler
April 7 - June 2, 2018
Gloriana Silks "Seaweed" and "Antique Gold Dark"
36ct Vintage Nameless Linen
Sorry about the snap I had trouble with the way it was lit. The linen isn't faded at the bottom ..... This was a great piece to stitch and in stitching this piece I was reminded why I so enjoyed stitching Quakers... I did work in the missed stitches and evened up some of the edges as I went along because some of them here just driving me crazy. I also reworked the name line with my initials, city, and date. I stitched "6 mos" like on Hannah's indicating June - so I kept that little thing - other than that It looks very much like the original.
I already had kitted up another project since I was so close to the end of Hannah....
Heartstring Samplery "My Funny Valentine"
It's "My Funny Valentine" ( to be referred to as MFV in future posts) and I am stitching it on the end of the piece I just stitched "Hannah." That piece of linen was a weird shape and this stitch will use up all I have - It was a nice piece of linen and I've really enjoyed working with it, just wish I knew exactly what it was???..... The original piece was stitched using a red GAST floss but I really like this shade of red by WDW called "Lancaster Red" so I went with what I like... and I have a few skeins from the same dye lot so I'll not run out as I stitch along!!
That's about it for today on the stitching front sports fans!! Thanks for stopping by do stop again!
