Spring Sampler


Spring Sampler by Little House Needleworks using Crescent Colours Belle Soie silks, on 32 ct Natural Linen

C'est fini! Sorry the colours in my scanner don't seem to be picking up the pretty greens, they are much much nicer in RL. Its nice to get a smaller finish, I don't get many of these since most of my stitching projects are so huge. The new Belle Soie silks are so nice to work with, very reminiscent of Gloriana silks, although I was coming close to finishing the light green and had to be very careful towards the end that I didn't run out. That said, while I don't have enough to do a second piece, I am happy to send off my slightly used pattern and leftover silks to anyone who is interested in giving this little piece a try.

Leave me a comment if you are interested!

I know its Sunday, but its going to be a work day for me. Hubby is finishing up some holiday time this week, so we are off on Wednesday to Pittsburgh for a few days, just the 2 of us! How romantic!! I don't know yet what we will be doing, but shopping is definitely in, I have have addresses for all the local Joann's to plug into the GPS, and my Visa primed and ready.

Shocking - it was like summer here yesterday! The temperature outside my car read 27 degrees C!

Wendy, your Spring Sampler finish is beautiful! I'm sorry it doesn't feel like Spring where you are--maybe I shouldn't tell you that it is 65 here now and going to 80 today! :)

I would love to stitch Spring Sampler--seasonal designs are my favorites to stitch for me.

I hope you have a lovely, romantic trip with your DH this week with LOTS of stash shopping!!

It's so lovely and the colours must be REALLY lovely in real life if the pic isn't showing them true because they look fab on my monitor.

Super job Wendy! Such neat little stitches!

Spring turned out beautifully, I have this in my stash to do at some point. Looking out my window at the gorgeous day today and hearing the birds, it would be a fun project for now.

Have fun in Pittsburgh, hope you find lots of great new stash.
