Hello people. Hope those of you that are snowed in are safe and warm. The wind looked vicious in the continuous news coverage. Whenever I see people stuck on highways for hours my first thought is always, where is the bathroom? I would never make it!
This is Martha, in the series of offers that included little Robina Leadbetter that I stitched months ago. And just found when decorating for Christmas. My forgetfulness is still giving me double the excitement from my re-discoveries.
Stitching with one thread only happened on 35 or 40, and that was only three small projects. This is 32 but I thought the look was a little more subtle and stuck with it.
Rust was my color choice but I think the 300 I chose is too red. This little sample is 433 and it's more of what I wanted, so........ to be continued.
As for the copper penny linen, I love it. It was used for Eliza Pomeroy and I only have a small piece left. I purchased it at the only shop within a hour from me and she said other pieces had quite a bit of blue. This one is perfect.
Just enough of the mottled bluish green with the coppery tone and here's a better look for those of you that are shopless and need to order online.
So here's where I am, haven't removed the two thread portion and probably won't. I'm sure there was a young girl stitching her sampler many years ago that did the same thing. If not, an old lady in 2016 did. But will I continue in this color since the 433 is calling my name? Why didn't I choose it first? The 430 series was in my bag from Sally and I had enough of those colors. I can always do another small with it though, and just continue with the 300. My house is dusty, floors need cleaned, drywall isn't finished, projects half completed, but thread color on a small piece bothers me. I am so totally weird. And another 5# heavier.
Thanks for visiting.
