Hiya. I'm in a pickle here. I couldn't leave well enough alone and tried to work on the drywall seams and ceiling patch a little more, which turned into a lot more, because the ceiling paint was the first beige I tried and it's all gone. I forgot! The walls were several shades mixed together and is lighter and different, so now the ceiling has to be repainted instead of touched up. We won't even get into how this small patch turned into a quarter of the ceiling.
So here's the offer. Since these samplers are so little, I'm offering both in one drawing. I changed a few colors to show up better, stitched the birds in blue, and you can have fun mixing your colors, or follow the original.
The counts are ..... oh crap. Where the hell are they? Wait. I'll be back.
Found them. What a stupid place to put them so I wouldn't lose them. Anyway,
H. Kessel is 82 x 91 so 28 count would be around 6 x 6 1/2"
(their design measurement is wrong in the chart),
Harriot Simpson is 83 x 66, on 28 count around 6" x 5".
I did mine on 35 count so they are much smaller. My first attempt on that count with one thread, and I like it! Leave your entry on this post (anonymous please leave initials). Thursday at 8pm will be the deadline, unless only one person is interested. I may not post again until then because I really have to stay off this computer and get things in gear. I haven't been reading blogs and am missing quite a bit anyway but a few days unplugged is necessary.
Here is the out-of-this-world-good peach recipe. I'm not a big cinnamon fan but this combo is divine. You can change the 1/2 teaspoon to a little more if you really like cinnamon. I made it into a .jpeg so you can right click to print if you want, and I'll add it to the other blog of recipes. I used to make a Peach Kuchen that included a quart of heavy cream and fresh peaches. Brought me to my knees.
That's all I got. Back to the joint compound and sander.
Have a safe and stitchy week!
Thanks for visiting and don't forget to leave your name if you'd like the samplers.
