Forget Me Not

I stayed up late last night and finished up my Forget Me Not Sampler by With Thy Needle & Thread. It is such a pretty design (the photo doesn't do it justice, as it is a dull day here today).

I chose not to dye my fabric, as the colours looked really nice against the cream fabric. Plus you really never know what colour/shade you are going to get when you dye your own.

Next up for me is the Frosty Forest series. I'm hoping to get Raccoon Cabin stitched up before Snowy Deer arrives in the mail.

It's just a quick post from me today - so have a great weekend!

Hi Rowyn,

I'm glad that I've just signed up with a blog reading service because I missed a spurt of blog updates that you had done while my back was turned. So here I am catching up with all your news.

Love that Forget Me Not sampler. The browns and the turquoises look spectacular together and all those sweet motifs must have been a joy to stitch. Especially those sheers or scissors.

Sew Advent is gorgeous!!! Those little pops of
red and green give this pretty design a bit of
pop without overwhelming it. And Annabelle's
name fits there perfectly. A wonderful choice
for her first Christmas.

Mt Maunganui is such a beautiful place. Just
look at that beach!!! Sigh!! What a spectacular
country New Zealand is. I love having the
opportunity to see it through your (camera's)

Love any and all pictures of Annabelle!!! Keep
'em coming!!!

Tried any tangling yet???

Will be wearing multiple layers of clothing
again tomorrow here. Temps are plunging
and we're enjoying another snow/freezing
rain/ice pellets storm. And winter is just
three weeks old!!!!!

Beautiful finish! Samplers have grown on me in the past couple of years and I do enjoy seeing 'new to me' designs. Can't wait to see the CCN. I'm really interested to see where they go with that series
