Gentle Friends thank you so much for your kind comments about "Merry and Bright." I started in on a little Christmas piece I had already kitted up.......
... it's called "J'arrive" and is from Tournicoton. I saw this a few months ago and immediately wanted to stitch it up, it is a bit more "cartoony" than things I usually do, but that doesn't worry me a bit, the French directions, that's another story, I have figured out all the different specialty stitches and where the beads and bits all go - so I'll stitch along and I am sure it will turn out fine. The crazy linen is Silkweavers "Ametrine," it is the called for linen, and not from my stash...... my stash linen leans more towards the beige, brown, grey, did I mention beige..... not purple splotchy and gold..... I wanted to stitch something that was more out of my comfort zone, and this great little piece fit the bill......
Since today is the last day I'll be here this week I wanted to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!!!!
That about wraps it up, thanks again for stopping by do stop again!!
