Progress!Friday, May 23, 2014
I'm mixing up the eyelet stitches with a bit of smyrna cross stitches. My letter "A" is off a thread or two and the "D" barely hooked up on the bottom curve. Quite a bit of cheating on my part. I'm stitching in the evening while watching TV. (Excuses....excuses) I realize you are probably doing the same and not making any mistakes.
I find I enjoy stitching this project along with all of you. It makes me feel like we are united in some way.
Elizabeth Phirman sent the photo above. (Looks like her lovely quilt was the color inspiration.) She writes....
This SAL has been so much fun! My linen choice was from Lakeside Linens 36ct. Pearl Barley. The border and four sided alphabet is Gentle Art Burlap. The dark blue is GA Brethren Blue, with the light blue being GA Mountain Mist. There are more colors to come...a slight design adjustment...hint...I live by the sea!

Pat Ryan from Dyeing to Stitch sent her colors too. Her colors are pictured above. She writes:
Hope it is not too late to join the stitch along. I picked 40ct. R& R Vineyard Mist. Classic Color Works silk: Rosebud, Chester Blue, Pecan Pie and Herb Garden. Also used Glorianna silk: Brick and Dried Pink Roses.

Her sampler is pictured above. I like how she has begun her piece. As she has begun each line and has her placement secure, she can now choose which alphabets she wants to work on ...good way to keep it interesting.
Many thanks to all of you for your participation. It means a lot to Barb and me. We love seeing your samplers!!! I'm going to get Barb on Instagram soon. Will give details on the next posting.
Hope you all have a lovely weekend! I'm riding the Katy Trail and listening to some music.The Peddlers Jamboree is this weekend. Going to do a bit of cross stitch in the evening too!
