I’ve been stitching a little more on my Lemon Meringue Sampler. I’ve got the middle row finished. It has three colors of yellow in the diamonds and in the center of each is off-white. I am stitching this with DMCs on 28ct linen. It is such a fun stitch. I’ve been taking it with me to work on between work and my discussion group on Wednesdays. So this is only about two hours worth of stitching (last week and this week). Since I haven’t really been home the past two nights, we haven’t had a chance to taste our cake yet. But, I will let you know tomorrow how it is. I know I owe answers to several questions that have been asked in the comments, so I will try to answer those in my next post. Here’s a pic of the whole sampler and how it will look when it’s finished. I would like to mat and frame it this way and hang it in my kitchen.
And for those interested, Casey Buonaugurio will have this adorable design called Caramel Apple in next month’s issue of The Cross Stitcher (October issue). I just love this! And she has the yummiest freebie on her website here (scroll to the bottom for it). It is a design of chocolate-covered cherries!
And just for fun, here’s a Coach bag that I would love to have in this beautiful Lemon Yellow color, but I don’t even see it on their website…I just lifted this from an ad. Too cute!
I am grateful for being open to receive prosperity.
