How are you? Still waiting for spring aren't you? Don't hold your breath. Been busy with appointments and more family health issues, but wanted to quickly show my new project. As usual, I had several samplers chosen, one of which was Scarlet Letter's Fanny Hancock and when she popped up on Pinterest, I thought that was the sign. But last minute, I decided a wonky little primitive piece would be better.
Meet Hannah Haines.
This sweet sampler is from Hands to Work. The alphabet is not the ordinary and I chose 25 count unbleached linen because I prefer primitive/early looking pieces on a coarse higher count. Another very easy and quick stitch. Fun! I'm not quite ready for a more involved project.
A reader directed me to a blog and website that is very interesting. I haven't had time to check it out other than a quick browse and you may be familiar with it if you like embroidery and historical stitchery. Their website, Thistle Threads, is here and will direct you to their blog and other interesting information, historical work, instruction, sources, and more with every click. Thank you Mary!
After a run under the vacuum, this brat pad shows another reason for not allowing them to roam the house. These cats are filthy!! No hair on this, and just take a look at what else they leave behind. I have a lot of these protective pads left from caregiving and they really come in handy. Time for another load in the washer.
Enjoy the weekend, stay safe, be comfortable!
Thanks for visiting.
