Another EntryFriday, April 17, 2009
This one is from Beth Twist.
"I have stitched dozens of samplers, but have never stitched my own name in, or the actual date, so this time I did... I'm not sure how I will finish it off just yet. I hope you like my "translation", I followed the chart for the design, but chose to let my threads do the talking, and only switched colors when a thread ended, with the exception of little Miss Bird, who simply needed to be striped! I think the linen is Zwiegart in a natural, and probably 28 count, but I'm not sure (I really should label my stash linens). I used DMC 221 for the dark red, WDW Raspberry for the medium, and WDW Red Pear for the light."
Beth I'm so glad you added your name to a sampler. At first I thought ....I can't believe she hasn't added her name to a sampler!!! But the more I thought about it I thought....heck I haven't either. I usually put an A or maybe AA. Now I think I'm going to have to do one with my full name too. You are entered into the contest.
I love the little box with the tulip in your picture Beth. I know everyone here is going to want one. Is this a pattern? Is it needle punch? You are going to have to leave a comment because inquiring minds want to know.
For those of you looking at this for the first time check the April 14th post for contest details.
More later dear friends! My bags are packed and I'm off to bed.
