well one pretty picture … my RR piece..
i know, no one pass out , it was actually finished yesterday…
it is jans RR Morning Rose, stitched on 25 ct 1×1
I apologise if it looks slightly distorted i had to do some reducing so she wasn’t chopped off…
i will have pics of my pitiful Wednesday QS SAL attempt tomorrow with an even more pitiful pic of Elenia.. maybe next yerar i will take all of february off stitching…. like the players go off the court in the Australian Open for the heat rule, i will go off the cross stitch court for the heat rule…..
Next is the things i have come across whilst avoiding work and sitting infront of the big fan we keep near the computer so it doesn’t have a melt down in the heat
Has anyone ever heard of The Courtney Collection?.. they have released a really unusual mermaid chart i think some of you would like.. the medieval fans
Next i came across some cool Jeanette Douglas Designs Freebies, I was actually trying to find a picture of one of her pieces, as Tradtional stitches had the thumbnail of a new piece, but when i clicked on it it went to the GPA Queen Sophia Sewing bag etc..
next is one i have been trying to remember to post for about 2 weeks.. Plum street samplers have a new Quaker calender series .. on another website it explianed about why they used first month, second month etc instead of the month names.. i need to find that again…
next in my wander through cyber space is the WOOHOO moment for me this week.. i have been waiting for a particular Jan Houtman sampler to be released.. i loved the
Le Noir et Rouge one i linked a month or so back, but the one i had been holding out for before i emailled Ina was Rainbow Sampler
not the best picture but nonetheless you get the idea!
next a dilemma.. if i order the Rainbow sampler ..which is really norty of me but there you go i am bad.. i shouldn’t really order the new Blackbird Designs Needle and Thread Book.. Karen has it at Dragonfly Dreams i think it might work out cheaper if i bought i OS though postage might negate that anyway it isn’t cheap, but it does have 12 designs…
and i know next month my expense will be 12 skeins of Gloriana and a chunk of linen
and there are two important Aussie girl Birthdays coming up…..
edited to add… i found this on Shakespeare’s Peddlers website re the quaker months..
The Story: While referring to the months of the year, Quakers did not use “January,” “February,” etc., as these were names derived from heathen gods. Instead, they referred to each month as “First Month,” “Second Month,” and so on.
