“In every end, there is also a beginning.”

 Gentle Friends, I finished the sampler last night and here's a snaperooo...

Village Square Sampler from Samplers Remembered  
1/8 - 3/24   40-count BoF Barn Owl
My Conversion from the charted DMC to various Overdyed Flosses
I also recharted the lower right section for the date and to reflect my stitching

I've got everything lined up for the next project which I'll show next week.

Thanks for stopping by do stop again.  Stay Safe!

Flowers and Fruit

 Gentle Friends, I wrapped up the centre square stitching... here's a snaperooo...

... I thought about straightening up the baskets and making them more evenly spaced, but figured that since this was originally stitched by an 8-year-old I'll just leave that bit of wonky alone...  as I've said before I can live with some wonky!!  

I've also decided what I'll stitch next...I figured it out this week from a finish on one of the stitching pages I follow on Facebook (the birthplace of conspiracies and lies btw...)... all I'll say at the moment is that it's from Prairie Schooler.  Over the years I've collected most of the PS charts that were released and still get the annual Santa card.  I've even stitched quite a few PS pieces, mostly smalls for gifts over the years, but never tackled a bigger piece, and I figure I ain't gettin' any younger !!  I'm also pulling out a WIP I had forgotten about and working on that simultaneously, so I'll actually be in a 2 piece stitch rotation... we'll see how long that lasts... but for now, I aim to finish up this sampler!

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

"Feed me Seymour"

 Gentle Friends, stitching away on the central block of the sampler, and here's a snaperoo... that I've posted this picture I can see that the color is way off and the linen looks splotchy... what a crap snap!!  Well, just see the progress and not the odd color...  as I stitched along on the leaves and stems all I could think of was a song from the 1986 film "Little  Shop of Horrors"... and a great little film with some outstanding performances!!  If you've seen the film you get the reference if not give the film a look, I'm sure you'll enjoy it as much as I have over the years.

A Little Village

Gentle Friends, now that I've gotten the "Village" part of the sampler out of the way it's on to the giant flower.... here's a snaperoo...

... it's a pretty craptastic photo but you get the idea.  I was just too lazy to pop it all the way out of the old Q-snap...that enormous urn holds a gigantic flowering plant that is next on the agenda... let's see how much of that sucker I get done by next week...

There has been lots of rain here by the Bay the last few is nice to just be inside stitching, and watching the rain fall....that's about it for today sports fans.  Thanks for stopping by do stop again.  Stay Safe!!
