Vacation StitchingWednesday, April 8, 2009
Only a quick update today. There's work to be done! I wanted to show you my sampler I purchased on my last trip to France. I found it this morning. Much to my dismay, I've left it folded in a plastic bag for months. I was lucky to get the folds ironed out. What am I thinking? I must find a better way to store my UFO's. (Unfinished Objects...for those of you that finish everything. I know there are quite a few of you unfamiliar with this term. I have seen your blogs with your beautiful finished projects! You know who you are....we won't mention names here.) I digress....back on topic. I'm going to take this project back with me to France and work on it again. Give it one more chance to be in my completed pile. It will be one well traveled project.
I'm using Poinsettia #035 silk by Gloriana threads. I need another skein of floss. It's a good excuse to visit Des Fils et une Aiguille. There might be another sampler I need to purchase.
This is the sampler of Marie Lasguigue by Bleu de Soie. Here is a great site for European Samplers.
Alissa is still charting the French Sampler I pictured here a couple of days ago. Not to fear, I want you to be able to stitch a French Sampler too. I will post the chart as soon as I get my hands on it.
Couple of sites you have to see. These gals are really busy with hexagons. And Barb and I have enjoyed seeing what these gals are up to.
Barb will post something soon. She has secrets to share with you too.
Until later dear friends! Alma
