So as you can see, I have finished Paradise Lost by Plum Street Samplers. I am thrilled to have my 2nd piece of the year done and under my belt. I started this last Fall with a bunch of other stitchers, and have had a blast stitching it with them in a un-official SAL. This weekend I brought my project with me to TX for a wedding. Flying time--plenty to get it done. Stitching on the way fast and furious, also on the way home. Since flying in for the wedding on Friday afternoon, and festivities starting almost immediately, I only had time to stitch on the plane. No complaints, although for the first time in my life I wished the flight home was a bit longer, taking advantage of the flowing wine in the first class cabin, I wasnt able to complete it. I had the heading already in my mind "Paradise Lost is First Class".
It was a family wedding, and it was just great to see everyone again. Since it has only been a month, or should I say already since my Sister has tied the knot......Seeing the relatives again was a blast. I am always ready to get all dolled up for a party. I made sure to have PL with me--- the end was near.
Tonight I have completed the PL sampler-- What is officially next, we shall see. Stitching this beauty on 45ct Vintage Sand Dune from Lakeside with the called for NPI and Gloriana silks, dont you just love the silks???!!!!!! My sampler measures 17.25" long x 7.5" high; an amazing difference in size from the model of 23.25" x 10.5" on 36ct. I already have the frame picked out, this summer I will have to bring it away.
What is next? Well, I have shown my sister what I am going to stitch for her and her new Husband (yes, I did start it!!!!!), so that is next for sure.....but what is next after that?!! I have a few ideas and I am sure a few more will be thought of in only a matter of weeks. Projects planned again with friends.
I am headed into another great summer of fabulous friends, fun and so much laughter, your sides and cheeks hurt for days. I cant wait to see you guys. Thanks to everyone for all your encouragement and kind words over the last few and far between posts.
Final question and thought, for the gals stitching this sampler with me--- How are all of you doing on it?!!!! Finishing this piece makes me thirsty :)
