Since finishing my Rabbit Box at Easter, I decided that I would work on something else that’s been calling my name. You may remember Isabella Johnstone? I’m stitching her with the called for Belle Soies on 40ct Vintage Lentil. And I’ve really been enjoying her (despite having to rip out her entire right hand side border and restitch it). And I’m excited to finally be getting into some colors other than red and green!
You can see I’ve gotten my leaves stitched almost all the way down the right side. I’ve been stitching a length of Attic Tea on the leaves, then I work on the middle. Then back to the leaves. That seems to be breaking up the leaves enough that they’re not driving me bonkers!
She’s a sweet little sampler, and I just love the size of her on 40ct, not very big at all. And I’ve been enjoying her so much I think I will just continue to stick with her for now. Today is And They Sinned SAL day, so I’ll be working on it later. I can’t wait to get out of the grass at the top of page 2 and into something more fun.
And I had to share a little gift that Sylvia picked up for me at the Paris needlework show. Isn’t it fun?
I love the little strawberry!
Well, I’m off to see what I can get accomplished with the remainder of my weekend. I hope you all enjoy yours as well!
I am grateful for some time to relax, and getting to read and stitch!
