Finishing up Old Nantucket by Little House Needleworks (45ct vintage meadow rue and my silk conversion) on Valentines Night, while watching movies and eating chocolate-- yes, I had to have a piece or 2!!!! AND I did get my first ever heart shaped candy box. Yes, I have received chocolate in the past, but this year was the first in different shape box--I'm crazy, but that everyone knew already :). I remember Grandma would always receive a heart shaped box of chocolate from Grandpa every year for Valentines day- the biggest one I think I can remember-- when you are kid everything is big right?! It was great to think of that story this past Valentines.
Old Nantucket came out great what do you think?
You remember I shared 2 pics of thread rings a couple posts ago? One with black linen and the other with brighter colors, I think on vintage woodsmoke? Well, I decided to pick the black one to start by Goode Huswife- The Flowers of Lebanon. OOP but I found it last summer on a road trip and couldnt resist. It reminds me of the colors from Goode Huswife- Black Forest. I like the bright colors however I havent really stitched with them for a bit. Why not?
I also talked about a driving project back in December and it was Elizabeth J M Mears. Well, yesterday we went on a drive and I brought Miss Mears will me and unfortunately didnt get that much done because the roads are just aweful!!! I dont get it. With all those tax dollars paid, where are the smooth roads???!!!!
Tonight I think I will continue on the Flowers piece, and see where the stitching path leads in the next few nights. Maybe SDW??!!!!!!! Yikes! I need to get back to that great sampler asap. Until next time my friends. Thanks for visiting!
