New Sampler

Bicyclette BEECan’t understand where my days go anymore. It seems there is little time for surfing all your blogs that I love so much, little time for sewing, embroidery, quilting, and all the rest. Just working at the office seems to consume my days and leaves me exhausted at night with my eyes too crossed to see clearly to do much of anything. It’s beginning to sound like a broken record to me.  However….

Here is a little bit of heaven I found at The Stitcher’s Garden in Colorado. It’s by a french designer by the name of Isabelle Vautier. Francophile that I am, I couldn’t resist. It’s been a long time since I’ve done a sampler. Don’t you just love my “BEE”…I think it’s grand. The sampler should finish to about 12.9 inches by 5.5 inches. The pattern shows it in red thread, but I chose a cream Belgian Linen, 32 count, with green Threadworx overdyed floss. I love the one shaded color, but I preferred the green to the red. It is coming along slowly as I am trying to do a couple of other projects as well.

 The Stitcher’s Garden carries lots of french patterns…lots of different assorted styles.  I haven’t seen french needlework patterns at any shops near me, so this one has been really fun for me.

    how fun and beautiful. I think you are doing the right thing helping out the next generation with learning. After all, they are the ones that will be “taking care of us” in a few years. What a help to the mom (and dad).

    Hopefully you can find Sundays a complete day of rest and taking care of yourself, doing things you like to recharge your batteries!

    huggs to you my bloggy friend

    PS I found some French lace…it’s about (at least 20-25-30 years old) I have yards and yards. Would you like some?
