Gentle Friends, we're all a bit damp from the rain last week, and the Bay area is still in the "grips" of what passes for winter out here... mid 40's. But yesterday was breezy, cold and sunny so what do I have to bitch about...chilly weather and sunshine...I should be more grateful!! Palm Sunday started off with a lovely early morning Mass.... then for the rest of the day I sat around and stitched, ate a piece of cake and wrapped up my day with a massage...seriously,
I've really nothing to bitch about!!!!!
Now, today starts off a short week for me as I've taken off Maundy Thursday, we get Good Friday off and then just for good measure I took off Easter Monday for a really sweet Looooong weekend!!!! Let's get back on track... I'm still working on LVS and here's a snap...
... I've finished up the next two "Virtues" and the border. The biggest change I made was in "Kindness." The pumpkins were supposed to be a golden color but I wanted them to be a more pumpkin color so I' stitched them in GAST "Pumpkin Pie" and also changed the leaves which are GAST "Otter Creek." I had quite a few inquiries about what I'm stitching in the center...
... a few years ago I saw a completed version of the Sheep Virtues stitched all together and knew then I wanted to stitch them this way as a single sampler. Following that original stitcher, I've lost the name, I will be filling in the middle with Country Cottage's "Sheep in the Meadow." I will be replacing the color palette of "SitM" with my floss choices from "Virtues" so that they will blend together better.
I've also sort of decided that my next "stitch" will be a Quaker piece. I've got a ton of Quaker charts in my stash and haven't done one in a really long time so I think that's the way I'm leaning!!
That's about it for today sports fans, thanks for stopping by do stop again!!
