Above is my first Fair & Square Group piece stitched for my partner...who shall remain nameless. I don't think she'll be peeking at my blog this week, and I'm sending it off to her right away. I pieced this together for the 50 x 50 square from Samplers and Such, Quaker Motif and Sewing Box chart. It's stitched on 32 ct. Belfast linen with Sampler Threads' Buckeye Scarlet.
Here's some progress on my HAED RR stitchery for Jan in our group. My dining room chairs just happen to be "greenman" backed. Who'd a thunk it?!! LOL So, it was the perfect place to try to get an updated picture.
Although, you really can't see the true progress on the stitching!
I'm now off to Las Vegas for several days to visit my youngest son, so you won't hear from me while I'm out there. I'm taking Nautical Journey with me. You may remember it from an earlier entry. Have been neglecting it! And, reading material...:) Can't wait for the new Harry Potter, can you other Potter fans? It seems we've waited forever!!
I want to send a cyber thanks to several friends who've kept me going in the last couple of weeks, and who've really made this week particularly happy with notes and thoughtful gestures of friendship above and beyond: Deb in CT, Queenie, Carol, Carissa, Simone, Gail, DJ, Joan, Anne, An, Jessica, Brooke, and my DH. I love you guys...you're what it's all about!!
Thank you, also, to you who are faithful friends who stop by and read my blog and leave your messages of wit, whimsy, encouragement and love. You mean so much....more than you know!!
Hugs, Deb in FL/Lavender Rose
