The first finish was a square of HoHRH but I think I`ll show that in another post later, along with the squares I have done so far. The next finish was my version of The Drawn Threasds' Marriage Of True Minds. I just call it my wedding sampler, as I substituted a paraphrased verse of Dimitri Shostakovich for that of William Shakespeares' (apologies Will)
Sorry for the wrinkles, I promise it will be smooth and clean for the framer.
I also left out the band with the clouds and cranes...it was such a striking band I thought it kind of overwhelmed the sampler. Stitched on 32 count Zwiegart summer khaki. The pics are very washed out. I think I need to get photoshop so I can tweak colours in my pics.
The next finish is 17th Century Style Sampler by Gloria and Pat
Gee, my picture taking skills are stunning, aren`t they? (can you sense the sarcasm?)
Now that it is finished I`m not sure what I will do with it. I am not sure I like it as much as I thought when I started it, so instead of framing it I may hemstitch it and just tuck it in a drawer for now. It may grow on me, we will see...
I also took an old UFO and made it into a pincushion, but I`ll leave that for another post. I am stitching on Margret Gatis and having problems, so there has been a wee bit of cussing going on. My cats just look at me and flick their tails. They are no help.
Lady J saying "really, must you cuss?"
That`s all for today, sorry my posts are so infrequent. Time just seems to run away from me lately.
Keep stitching ladies!
