 Gentle Friends, I've always loved stitching Quaker pieces, but none more than this piece...

1798 Quaker Sampler by Goode Huswife
40ct Barn Owl by Linens by Design
Using the called NPI Silk Floss
1/30 - 3/18/2019

 I do enjoy the Goode Huswife pieces I've stitched and pieces I have yet to stitch...this is probably my favorite of them all.  It hangs in our living room and I see it all the time.

A Little Stitching

 Gentle Friends, stitching away on AGW, and here's a snaperoo..


.. I popped it out of the Q-snap and it looks a bit bent... but I did finish up that potted plant ... there were a lot of starts and stops with this as I do not like to trsvel floss too much on the back, but it's done, and on to the little motifs and the big-black-house!

 Gentle Friends, today is a Christmas piece that I stitched about 10 years ago...


... from Blackbird Designs, "Blessing be Thine"...  of course, I did it my way and I converted it from GAST and WDW overdyed cotton floss to Belle Soie overdyed silks...  stitched on 36ct Meadowlark from BoF - WDW Havana to BS Chocolate, GAST Cranberry to BS Red Fox, GAST Dried Thyme to BS Collard Greens, GAST Oatmeal to BS Oatmeal Scone.  I loved doing this and had planned to stitch it again... and may still get another one stitched up and made into a pillow.

A Little Movie Watching

 Gentle Friends... here's a movie list I made up long ago...and I still stand by my choices...

15 Movies to watch again and again!!  In no particular order......

1. - Summertime - 1955 - It is because of this wonderful movie that the first place I went to in Europe was Italy and especially Venice!!

2. - The Emperor's New Grove - 2000 - I love Disney Movies and am the first in line when a new release comes out (Pinocchio is coming out really soon!) This one has it all!!
3. Marie Antoinette - 1938 - Gorgeous if unrealistic version of the Queen's life with Norma Shearer in top form - I also love the 2006 version with Kirsten Dunst.
4. Giant - 1956 - There are so many great Elizabeth Taylor films I love but I picked this one.
5. Now Voyager - 1942 - There are lots of super Bette Davis films I really love and her career was so long - she is in top form in this one.
6. Trip to Bountiful - 1985 - A lovely small film at the end of Geraldine Page's glorious career.
7. Mildred Pierce - 1945 - There are lots of great Joan Crawford films but this sums up her great career.
8. Stalag 17 - 1953 - I love WWII films and this is both a great William Holden performance set in WWII.

9. Meet Me in St Louis - 1944 - A great nostalgia film and a super Judy performance
10. Goodbye Mr. Chips - 1939 - A super movie - and I needed to include a Greer Garson title- this being her first Hollywood film and super performance.
11. White Christmas - 1954 - One of two Christmas films I can watch over and over
12. Scrooge - 1970 - The second Christmas film I could watch over and over - Not the best interpretation of the Dickens classic, but in my opinion a great musical.
13. Dames - 1934 - One of the many super Busby Berkley confections I love.
14. Witness for the Prosecution - 1957 - A great suspense mystery film.


15. The Women - 1939 - A stupendous ensemble film from that golden year of 1939.


There you go - my top 15 - Everyone has favorite films - what would yours be??? 
Think about it as it is very hard to narrow down a list!
________________________________

Although I made the list up over a decade ago these are still films I watch when they pop up on TCM or I feel the need and grab the old DVD or Blu-Ray...an old film is like a good friend, always there!

A Little Stitchin'

 Gentle Friends and the heavens opened up and there was rain... quite a bit here in the Bay area... as we left Mass yesterday morning it started up and on the drive over the hill into Noe Valley, the 5 minutes it takes to get home it whipped up to damn near torrential!!  Then it was off and on all day Sunday.  On the stitching front I'm still plugging away at AGW... here's a snap of how it is shaping up ...


...sorry about the Q-Snap and wrinkles but you can see that it is a bit on the slow-going side...  
I do love the color palette!!

Flashback Friday

Gentle Friends, I picked another piece off the wall to showcase today.  " Le Jardin des Arbes" - A Garden of Trees...  here's a snap...

This piece I stitched about 12 years ago.  It comes from a French Magazine called "Mains & Merveilles Broderie Creative."  Even at the time I first saw this on another Blog post the issue was OOP. It took me a while to figure out from whence it came and then was lucky enough to borrow another stitchers copy so that I could stitch this sucker!!  Originally the sampler used only DMC but I converted all those to GAST floss and then stitched it on a piece of 36ct? PTP Heritage linen.  The saying in the middle translates loosely to "Each tree Welcomes its way to Spring."  It's a piece that I really loved stitching and see it all the time and still love seeing it hanging on the wall.  It is a shame that there wasn't a Fall piece to go with it but thems the breaks I guess!

That's about it for today sports fans.  This Sunday/Monday we're expecting our first rain here in the Bay area for months, not much but we'll take any drip or drop that falls at this point!  Thanks for stopping by do stop again.  Stay Safe!

A Little More Fall Stitchin'

Gentle Friends, I've started the second Hallowe'en piece... not too much to show but here's a snaperoo...


A Ghoultide Welcome - Plum Street Samplers
40ct LL Pecan Butter
Called For NPI Silk

This is a great piece for the season and since I had already started "A Yuletide Welcome" (about a decade ago...)  this will be a super companion piece...  now I need to find the YW piece, see where I left off, and pull that sucker back into shape.

Flashback Friday

Gentle Friends, I was putting some of the finished pieces into the"box" of finishes, basically a box full of rolled-up unframed cross-stitch, and saw this great piece...


"And They Sinned" - by Examplar Dames Design Co.
5/1/2011 - 1/14/2013
Stitched on 36ct Vintage Sand
Using mostly the recommended GAST Floss

Thinking back, this was a piece I stitched mostly over 2012 - although I started it in 2011 - I did next to no real stitching on it for months and months... so this was really a piece of 2013.  Sorry about the snap but to get it all in the same shot the daylight makes it look oddly dark at the bottom, it isn't... but you get the idea.  I really did enjoy this piece immensely.

A Little Finish for Fall

 Gentle Friends, I finished up Salem Remembered this evening, and here's a snaperoo...

Salem Remembered - The Primitive Stitcher
8/13 - 9/03/2022
36ct Barn owl - Birds of a Feather
Silk Floss - some called for and some I chose

I loved finally checking this great piece off my list of things  I wanted to stitch.  There's another Salem/Witch piece I'm thinking about that has landed on my list now... but that's for later...I started my second piece for Hallowe'en and if what I get stitched looks interesting enough I might post a snap on Monday.

"Hetty Child" The Sampler Company
10/18 - 11/14/09
32ct Fog - My conversion from DMC to Belle Soie

I remember seeing this on another blog and was really drawn to the great border and the squirrels.  I framed this in an old frame I had gotten from an estate sale and still like how it turned out.

 Gentle Friends, now that we are quickly heading to Fall, my favorite time of the year, I have really started thinking abut the upcoming Holidays.... and Christmas is at the top of the list... so here's a piece from about 10 years ago...

Lizzie Kate "ABC's of Christmas"
36ct BoF "Meadowlark" using the included floss
5/1 - 5/25/2013

Although not my usual type of stitching project, this piece resonated with me then and still does as it hangs up year round and I see it just about every day in the "gallery."

A Little Stitchin' Finsh and a Little Stitchin' Start - Fall I

Gentle Friends, I finished up Mary Ann, or I should say I finished up my version of Mary Ann,  as you might remember it was an exclusive kit from a Facebook Group I belong to... here's a snaperoo...

6/30 - 8/9/2022
The Mary Ann Aldred Sampler - Needlework Press
40ct LL Vintage Pear
Recommended CC Floss

Although I had originally planned and bought the whole shebang to stitch on the called for 40ct Vintage Country Mocha...when I started stitching I REALLY did not like the linen...so the Vintage Pear came from my stash...I also "adjusted" bits here and there I wasn't happy with in the sampler.  I know it's a "reproduction" and all that  - BUT - it's me that's gotta stitch and be the one happy whilst doing the stitching... and some of the wonkiness just was NOT going to fly...so I fixed, moved, and did it my way.  Sorry, it looks a bit wavy, but I didn't notice it when I was taking the pictures and I didn't want to pull it out from the box of finishes in the closet to re-take...   I do like how it turned out and although I'm not a "pink" person, I do like the pink in this.
__________________________

My first Fall piece is... Salem Remembered by The Primitive Sticher by Lisa Roswell who died back in 2011.  This has been on my list of rare, HTF, and elusive charts for years.  I've chased them all over the place and have never been able to acquire a copy.  I guess I could have a copy, but I'm just not willing to pay over $300 for a chart that consists of a list of names with a few bits and bobs in a box!!!  Nope, not doing it... so I put on the old thinking cap and got to work.  

There are many pictures of SR in various stages of stitching and lots of completed ones on the Internet.  I found all the pertinent images I needed to basically recreate the chart myself without stooping to a bootleg copy.  Lisa's family made a statement years ago that there would be no re-printing of charts so that was always going to be a brick wall I would hit.  I think I've come up with a good solution, I'm smart enough to stitch it from the pictures I've got and I can count and I even found a list of the silks used.  I've had to adjust the silks also as one of them is no longer available...  
so here's my small start...

Salem Remembered - The Primitive Stitcher

36ct "Barn Owl" - Birds of a Feather

Various Silks

You might notice linen I'm using is a wonderful piece of older BoF Barn owl.  Quite a few years ago Birds of a Feather were linen dyers in Oregon that made the most gorgeous linen that was a dream to stitch on in beautiful colors.  All the linens were named for birds and this was my go-to linen!!  They have long gone and this is my very last piece of linen from BoF.  It's kinda bittersweet using this last piece but it had to go at some point and I'm happy to use it for this stitch.

Flasback Friday

Gentle Friends, today's stitch is one from the Hawk Run Series from Kathy Barrick... from quite a few years ago... here's a snaperoo..


Village of Hawk Run Hollow
9/5/07 - 9/14/09
Lambswool 32 ct Linen     Recommended NPI Silk

This was a WIP for a few years which is unusual for me as I'm really a mono-stitcher and stick to a piece until finished.  With that being said...I must confess that I do have a few WIPs lingering in the background... I'm not sure why but there they are and at some point, I'll get back, but not anytime soon as my Fall stitching lineup is calling me.  Now, back to this VoHRH, I still love this series and have stitched a couple but the rest are just charts waiting for stitching.

A Little Stitchin'

 Gentle Friends, I'm still slowly stitching away on Mary Ann... here's a snap...

... the top is in and now it's on the bottom half and once those two trees I'll get to the verse and name.  I have already got my Fall stitches lined up ( a smallish one that will work up fast and a larger one that should carry me right up to a Christmas stitch) and all the silks gathered from the four corners of the world.  I had quite a time finding some of the colors I didn't already have in my stash, but I guess it's the times we are living in that are causing the disruption...

"Fragments in Time - Sampler Motifs" by Summer House Stitche Workes
36ct Barn Owl called for GAST

I remember the only change I made was to add the little red bird to the "M."  I have collected yearly series and have all the charts and at some point will go back and get them stitched up.  Such a fun quick stitch!!

 Gentle Friends, I finished up the second Christmas piece and got back to Mary Ann... here's a snap...


... I've shifted the "orange tree" a bit and... this is the second time I stitched the pink star.  It's charted as over one, but when I stitched it in it was a bit oddball out looking so I frogged it and restitched it over two,  now I'm much happier about the way it looks.

A Little Stitchin'

 Gentle Friends, not too much stitching on Mary Ann this week...here's a snap...


... I finished up my version of the house.  I made quite a few changes to the charted version.  I moved the entire house more to the center.  It still has a naive wonkiness but now the "tree" on the left will not be bumping up against the border.  

The reason for so little stitching here is I'm furiously stitching away on a Christmas present.  I needed to focus on it so I can get the sucker to the framers ... sooner than later.  I already have another stitched piece at Vonna's for finishing and I'm feeling the pressure to get this second piece wrapped up.  There is a third piece that I'll get moving on but I'm doing that finishing, so I have a bit more lea way with that.

A Little Finish and a Little Start

Gentle Friends, I finished up M. Quertier, and here's a snaperoo...

"M. Quertier 1799" from Scarlet Letter - my interpretation
36ct Hot Mess from WDW
Gloriana "Seaweed" and Silk N' Colors "Tapestry Green"
Spot Stitched using Gloriana "Dried Pink Roses" and "Elizabethan Green"

... I've been puzzling over the open wreath and what to stitch there but have yet to settle on anything...
_________________________

My next stitching project is something I acquired as an Exclusive Kit from a 
Facebook Sampler Group I belong to...

"Mary Ann Aldred Sampler" from Needle Work Press

The kit came with a piece of linen - Vintage Country Mocha 40ct - I just did not like this piece of linen, I tried to stitch on it and it's so stiff and unyielding that I just frogged the bit I had done, folded it back up, and dug out a piece I do like - LL Vintage Pear 40ct and now I'm happy as a clam.   I am using the floss that came in the kit all Classic Colorworks.  I am loving this piece as it has a super de duper border - and I am a sucker for a great border!!!

... it's the BBD Mystery Sampler.  I stitched it all on a single piece of linen instead of the various linens for each section.  Originally issued with the Loosfeathers #31, #32, #33, and #34 as bonus charts.  It has been recently reprinted within the Booklet "A Heart Remembers."

 Gentle friends, I've turned the corner so to speak on MQ.... here's a snaperoo...

.. sorry about the craptastique snap but you get the idea... now, since I'm looking at a finish on the horizon I've picked out my next project... a sampler that is all kitted up and ready to go... this piece will, I think will push me to a finish at the end of the summer and then I'll get to stitching the Fall sampler I've decided to do this year... come hell or high water.  It's been floating near the top of the "to-be-stitched" heap for so long that this is the year I want to geter' done! But, that will have to wait until the late summer.

"The Sarah Maddock Sampler - 1810" from Simply Samplers
11/20/2016 - 2/14/2017
36ct Barn Owl 
___________________

I remember seeing this on a blog post and then hunting for quite a while until I found the chart on the secondary market.  It was charted for DMC only.  Since I wanted to stitch this in silk, like with so many things I work on, I converted them to my favorite silks...my conversion from the charted DMC to Belle Soie (Classic Colorworks Silk) and HDF Silk
DMC 224 - Terra Potta
DMC 422 - Scarecrow
DMC 500 - Enchanted Forest
DMC 829 - Limited Edition Brown 
DMC 841 - HDF Jackalope 
DMC 924 - Mer Blue
DMC 926 - Ocean Tide
DMC 927 - Puritan Blue
DMC 928 - Eiffel Tower
DMC 3053 - Fern frond
Grass - Ivy League
Grapes - Elegant Eggplant

You know that what I usually am drawn to first in a sampler is the border and this one has a great grape/vine border with strawberries - such a super border and all those ducks!!!  It was a great piece to stitch from start to finish!!
