Sampler Lady by Little House Needleworks, using GAST and DMC, on 32 ct Lakeside Linen remnant.
Here is my newest start ~ Sampler Lady. Its hard to see right now but the alphabet is done in her skirt, its just the same colour as the linen LOL. I have to fill in the background still. I'm using the same Lakeside Linen fabric that I used for Home of a Needlworker. There's no name for this colour, it was just a test piece that was done in a 1/2 half size and I was able to buy it for a good price. It looks almost tea-dyed actually, and the colour is perfect for designs like this.
My BIG NEWS ~ my daughter Carrie and Jean-Francois are officially engaged!!! He presented her with an enagagement ring on Thursday. We knew it was coming but it didn't lessen any excitement when the big moment was actually here. They are looking at a September 2009 wedding date.
And Carrie and I already hit our first bridal show yesterday. To top off the fun day, I won a door prize and Carrie won the grand prize, $1000 towards a trip through Cruise Line Centre! We met a a wonderful couple who own a resort about 40 km northeast of us, what was once a ski lodge, and we are going to check out the place and the food on Valentine's Day as they open for special occasions.
