A Little Stitchin'

Gentle Friends,  still plugging away on Swan Pond and here's a snap...

... I've started up the left side of the border and filling in the alternating flowers.  I did a little research on the internet and landed on some information about wildflowers and Tennessee.   I think that the flowers might represent a "swamp rose" and "whorled sunflower".  Both of these wildflowers are native to the eastern part of Tennesee.  There was no information about the border in the instructions so I'm going with a swamp rose and sunflower.  The photo makes the roses look quite orange, but the floss is a pinky red filled in with a dustier pink color.

That's about it for today sports fans.  Thanks for stopping by do stop again!

Good Thoughts, Good Words, Good Deeds!


  1. Oh Edgar, I love the thread colors in that border against your fabric choice. It is looking mighty pretty.

  2. Very colourful border, its pretty

  3. Edgar,
    I think this is going to be a lovely piece. I also really liked your 1798 Quaker Sampler. I think your new sign off is a winner. Something for your readers to ponder as they leave your post. :+}

  4. I think that border is wonderful. I lover a border like that.

  5. Such a pretty little border going to be another stunning piece!

  6. Dearest Edgar: The colors are stunning.
    I love the net you can find just about everything in the world of information.
    I once just for the fun of it googled yellow socks, the list was never ending.


  7. This is a much more colorful piece than you have stitched in a while. That border is very pretty.
