Having no specific pattern, purpose, or objective, lacking any definite plan or prearranged order; haphazard. This definition of random pertains to much of my days. How's yours? Ending the year with relief that it's over or sorry to see a good year pass?
RANDOM THOUGHTS - SHEEPISH DESIGNS
Here's the completed sampler with subtle ink aging. I'm still not crazy about it but once I folded it back to framing size, I think it's more appealing. I may look for a basket or box to use for display but if not, will frame the piece. The initials and date areas were filled in with motifs and there are quite a few color changes. I like the way the upright cross (a.k.a. my lazy queen) looks! Certainly different than my usual sampler project, and I would prefer motifs in a larger piece mixed with more verse or letters.
Haven't chosen a new project yet. So many samplers I'd like to stitch and so difficult to decide on one. Right now, these two smalls are in the running. Always wanted to do Two Horses and the SL Miniature is so different. It is to be stitched over one which finishes at 2 1/2" x 3 1/4". Can I do that? Probably not. Over two threads would be double in size, still small. I think it will be the horses.Lots of returns and bill paying today, doc visits, and such. Tomorrow will be a little shopping and apple pie making for a visit with my aunt. My sister will have my car again but Mark is off this week so I still have wheels. It's time for me to start working on the kitchen and order my sink, faucets, stove, and counter top. I sure hope Ed will be around for the finish carpentry skills needed but I'm not counting on that. The cabinets will be made in the next few weeks and that damn Pinterest has me thinking about more changes.
Enjoy the last day of 2013.
Thanks for visiting!
