Hey there, Stitchy Peeps!
Wow!! Thank you so much for your kind comments and framing tips regarding the sampler! I am so flattered. And thank you Rachel for the little blurb on the Craftzine.com blog. Wowsa! Can you say increased traffic, lol?!? It's so cool to see my handiwork on such an awesome website. :) :) :)
I probably should have done this in the last post, but here are some more details about the sampler. (This is for you, Mary Grace. :))
It's called 'Nature's Alphabet' and is by Elizabeth's Designs. It was not a kit, but rather a leaflet, which is how I generally prefer my cross stitch projects to be. (I like to pick out my own materials, though every so often a really awesome kit comes along that I must have.) I did the sampler on 32ct Cream Belfast linen, probably purchased at Michael's. It's mostly done with DMC floss, with a little bit of Weeks Dye Works overdyed floss, four skeins to be precise. The beads and charms (or, 'treasures', as they are officially called) are Mill Hill. All in all, everything for this project is pretty widely available. :) And get this, people: There is a companion piece! 'Nature's Alphabet II'. I must do this. But hopefully it won't take me five years to finish...
Ok, now onto something different...
I have been hinting at and showing you sneak peek pics of a special project that I've been working on. Well, the work is done, my friends, and I am ready to reveal the fruits of my labor! Tee hee, YAY!!!
This is a pillow I whipped up for my dear friend Amanda, who will be celebrating her birthday soon. I really hope she likes it. :)
What's that?? You wanna see some more pictures? Ok, sure!
Well, that's it for me, bloggy friends! I want to thank each and every one of you who take the time to visit my humble little blog. It means a lot to me! And keep lookin' out for more stuff from me soon--you know that I am always working on something! Until then...
