Sophia Waters

  First ~ I want to express my gratitude to all of you that have emailed, commented, visited, and shared your stitching with me this past year.  I continue to be inspired by your work, from the smallest fob to the largest sampler, and how you've welcomed me into the blogging world.  I thank you sincerely.
Second ~ I should not have delayed my flu shot.  Yoi.  The final plan for the floss box is in place and I can't imagine a saw running or hammer pounding right now.  I won't be attending my sister's little get together today but I did get mom's shaved chocolate chiffon cake baked and it's ready to go. 
But here's how I really feel - big deal!!   Regardless of how poorly I feel, someone is suffering and won't recover as I will.  The end.
So here's Sophia Waters.

That little bit of blue is the only color and you can see how primitive this design is which is why I left it wrinkled.  I have her hanging (for now) on the side of the cupboard with one of my favorite unframed pieces, Mary Oldfield. 
Susannah French, the other R&R primitive design is being worked on now and I will feature her next time.  She's also mostly brown with incomplete stitches and errors. I can't wait to get the 12 new charts.   
While trying to recover some older photos from an old computer, I found several from prior years.  My laptop is acting the same as it did before the crash and I fear it will be crashing again.
Well, the season is officially over. And the last of my paint is spilled out onto the cardboard and drying for disposal. But every time I see this guy, I want to paint him again.

Time to put away the decorations and liquor up on cough syrup.
Thank you again for your friendship and encouragement this past year.
Stay safe ~ stitch happy!

Sophie looks wonderful Marly. I'm sorry that you're not feeling well and hope that you are better soon!! I'm a little sad about pulling down the decorations today too. It seems like the holidays went by so fast this year.

Happy New Year to you!

HAPPY NEW YEAR ... Hope you are feeling 100% soon.
We came down with the rotten Flu Christmas Day, one by one dragging it out for several days. However, the new Year is now feeling very Good to the three of us.
Being Catholic, 'The Christmas Season' is not over until "The Baptism of the Lord", which happens to be January 13th this year. We will leave the Christmas Tree and Nativity up 'til then. In the meantime, starting tomorrow I will be dismantling and sorting everything else.
Hmmm another 13... my Lucky Number is 13, inherited from my Granma Carrie. Did I say I was Catholic and #13 is my lucky number??? Ohh, Ohh, I've got some explaining to do. Oh well, I enjoy having some harmless fun too.

Love, Blessings and Peace to All,

So sorry you're feeling poorly Marly. Makes me wish I didn't have to wait until the 11th for my flu shot!
I love your Sophia Waters. I must look that one up.
Take care of yourself...rest plenty!

Penny said...

Hi Marly.... I hope you feel better soon! I, too, have been suffering with the flu.... was supposed to get my flu shot at my November doctor's appt..... seems we both forgot and I left without it!!
I love your finished Sophia Waters! I've been looking and looking for it, but haven't been able to find it anywhere yet.... I'm guessing it may have been discontinued.... do you remember where you got your's??

I hope you're feeling better, Marly. The bug or flu or whatever it is that's going around here is wicked. I love your finish, especially the wee touch of blue.
Happy New Year!

Love the "little bit of blue"!

Rachel said...

Hi, I am new around here :-), but I just had to say I love, love, love Sophia Waters. Yes, it is rustic, but it is also quite beautiful! For the record, I am not QUITE that old (LOL) but at the same age that would have been the quality of my work. I am absolutely going to hunt the chart down. Thank you for sharing it!Hope you feel better :-)

Suzanne said...
