A Little Stitchin'

 Gentle Friends, still stitching away on ADI and I've started a bit near the bottom... here's a snaperoo..


I don't think I've ever given voice to the fact that within the middle square space - where the bands are that I was never fully engaged with that part of the chart or this sampler.  That was what kept me from getting this project a long time ago.  I am all for the blue chickens - woohoo!!!  ... and that's what pushed me over the edge and me now stitching away on this sucker, but the part just under all the over one grape arbor and motto... not happy with that in the least.  It looks and feels clunky and that extra box with my name - me no likey!  So... all this time I've been thinking about what could I stitch or re-work or just chart to fill this space and it's a pretty big space.  I've looked a literally 100's of samplers from the late 18th and early 19th centuries - nothing from anywhere jumped out as a fix.  However now I think I've figured it out and have a solution....  I'll ruminate on it a bit before I let loose and just keep stitching away.  BTW that space between the two ladybugs and that bit of holly....  that's for goldenrod - all french knots - not my favorite - so I'll let that go for the moment also!!

A little Stitchin'

 Gentle Friends, still stitching away on the Deleware Sampler... here's a snap...

... this picture makes the piece look very tan...  I guess the lighting was a bit odd... oh well, I finished up the mirror bit on the right, and now am just working towards the bottom of the piece.....

A Little Brunchin'

Gentle Freinds, after Mass on Sunday we met up with some friends at The Wooden Spoon on Market Street.   We've been before and it was quite tasty...again this time it did not disappoint...let me start off with a snap of the menu...


... and here's some "food porn".... yummy...

... I checked ou the menu the night before so knew exactly what I wanted even before we sat down,  Sweedish Society Pancakes, so good, just thick crepes, and the lemon curd and lingonberry added just the right amount of zing!!



... everybody else got The Big Spoon, eggs, any way you want, potatoes, a little fruit, biscuit, and bacon....  this is a great place and we got there just as the first wave of "brunchers started to arrive.  We love meeting up and brunching so that when we are done and get home all that is left to do is take a nap!!  It was a super Sunday for sure!
