whilst i feel anything but serene today ( trolls ) i thought it a good time to try and create some serenity by posting my precious serenity sampler
mind you this piece nearly defeated me last week..
for what ever reason i came across a mofif i could not stitch…
i could stitch about 10 stites and then have to wander off and do something took me about 4 days to stitch it, and then the next one which was bigger took me one day..
that has happened to me before.. when i suddenly hit a motif in a sampler that just defeats me… and i go so slow it is ridiculous.. anyone else ever experience this or is it another of those special fudgey traits?
so anyway the short version of this is.. i am one motif short of what i usualy do in each serenity rotation pout..
Mum saw it for the first time on the weekend and she thinks it is the best thing i have ever stitched.. in general my mum does not get my stitching at all, so that was a rare surprise.. i don’t do much my mum is ever impressed by
a reminder 1×1 on 35 count using hdf silks conversion for the Martina Dey sampler Serenity

the rogue motif was the bottom right light green one.. the one i did in a day was the mid gren one diagonal to the right above it… bizarre i tell you!
In other random chat… my comissioned piece froMichele Lee Phelan arrived and it is lovely.. many of youwill be surprised by the colours but when she did a sketch , it became clear the only colours that would suit her would be autumn ones.. so now i have an autumn coloured original aceo form Michele!
I love her work , she is so at one with nature and the environment in general.. i am sad she is not interested in having her work licensed for charted, but i respect her reasons why. Every year i try and treat myself to one of her comissioned pieces.. her wonderful work can be found here…
Dreams of Gaia and my precious little aceo can be seen Autumnal Dryad
I now own Cirques de Triangles ( inkcircles ) now too. janine is having a 15% off sale for spring and well i just had to order it…. Colours down Under
and it would seem a lot of people want to get this Black lace chart started..
hmm might be time to get a coordinated sal of some sort started…
edited to add…
i just looked on papillion Creations after posting this i love this new design.. Cotillion
Soo many possibilities/……
