the silver lining to having a bad head is that i got to catch up on my mystery sampler..
i knew if i tried too much haed/cc stitching i would end up frogging large tracts of it..
i have nearly finished my RR piece.. about 80 single stitches to go…. sigh but i have only done that in the hour the medication ( yes i went to the doc i have a prescription spray now ) works really well each time i use it for about 1 -2 hours then i start feeling grotty again.
so anyway here is the top row of the sampler done.. i decided not to continue on with my strip of bright pink until i hit the page below in 4 weeks time so i can see how wide the motif actually is there is just too small a sample of that one to risk choosing a colour IMO
there is a LOT of stitching in that Colonial teal motif and i had a lot of fun deciding to go really OT with the Rose quartz and phlox combo for the last motif… i did have a more subtle combo usingthe rose quartz and water blue, but decided to heck with it
ok tried to post a pic where you could see the whole top row without a microscope and it would not work so just use the link instead, sorry….
if you want to see a bigger picture here is the link
My Pine Dryad finally got charted.. yes this green thing continues to not only be a source of amusement for Sue and Sonya but one of bemusement for me..
so anyway, somehow someway i am going to try and squeeze a bit of time in for her i might be dropping out of some stuff and just doing my RR , mystery sampler, wed sal and sal challenge i think..
i have been feeling really overwhelmed recently and over commited trying to participate in everything with everyone
So once i can sort out some pale coloured jobelan and track down all the floss.. she is NOT small i will start her sopme how..
there is a peace about her that really gets to me
I saw another wip of A New Beginning from Abbey lane designs yesterday , again done in overdyed silks from HDF … i really do love that chart.. like i need another spot motif sampler..
i am too lazy to link the chart , it is in my wish list with a link just incase you know not what i talk of
it is time for me to move myself and try for a good stitchy afternoon and get those final stitches in the RR for nancy and so i can post to the poor long suffering diane for having to put up with me always being late, and to do some of aredhel… then i must get back to my models.. a week off has been bad for my routine which had been working well
