pictures and thoughts again

well i have been sttiching a lot…
can’t share all the pics yet, but i can share some..
i can’t share my halloween exchange pictures.. but the yay there is the stitching part is done, now comes the construction part.. which i can do but i am so weird.. i begrudge stitching time to construct the things i have already stitched.. which is sort of SILLY… but there you go

I have finished my last regular page of the tranq sampler there are just the litty bitty pages to go.. the ones i am hoping martina releases all at once, which will mean by this time next week i might be finished!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! but paul reckons she will torture us and release one a week … but no picture of that until i have finished

what i can show you is Sugar magnolia after this months sal challenge  and now she has a whole face ie  no cheek gap, and all her neck and decolletage and lovely choker


i do not think i will make it by the end of the year.. i have a lot of hair to do .. we will see i guess
next is my new sampler start..i know i start samplers  alot.. this one is fun so far..
i like the colours.. i am using a D bag from Vikki ( HDF) which is a detritus bag, that you can get sometimes if you order over $20 of silks for $9 i got two in a month.. ( bad bad bad fudgey) and amazingly they were complimentary colours in both.. and i have got a really cool colour combo going .. the detritus is all the miss labled, wrong dye batch etc silks so she sells them off in bags , and you get heaps in a bag
the chart is Mary Anne which i mentioned a few posts back, it is from Colours Down Under the designer is Monasterium , and CDU is the distributor for the designer and she is about to release two more which i have on sort of pre order i like this style of  sampler better than most quaker reproduction  ones i have decided, the exception being beatrix potter which is OOP and selling for over $100 usd on ebay these days Jane Rees of course, smaller quaker inspired samplers is a different story.. like anything from Midnight Stitching , The workbasket etc  i adore

anyway here is Mary Anne.. 1×1 on 30 ct legacy linen in old ivory


think that is it….. for now…

    Love the choker on Sugar, she is such a delicate thing that i can well imagine that there would be many Gents on bended knee before her! Lovely. Your sampler..ah!the colours are a breath of fresh air!

  7. Beautiful work as always. Am looking forward to seeing more of both of these.
