A finish!!! Excuse the wrinkles. This picture proves to me that I need to take the time to iron things before I photograph them. Tisk Tisk!!!! I started this a long time ago and it was sitting in one of my many piles of WIPs. It was very close to finished so I pulled it out last weekend and finished it. I think it was the satin stitches on the spools that were psyching me out. But, lo and behold, they were fun to do and I think they look so cool! This is a club piece from Country Sampler. It is from the first year they started the Prim Sisters Club and the designer is the always fabulous Pineberry Lane. She kindly designed a very similar piece that you can find on her Etsy site here: Proper Sisters School of Needlework.
I love, love, love her people!!! They are the very definition of Prim! I see from looking at a close-up of the piece that I need to go back and trim some ends. I don't want them showing through after framing!
I am also a big fan of the upper case and lower case alphabet together. It just reminds me of a being a kid and warms my heart.
I have the feeling that if you live anywhere other than the always warmer parts of the United States that you are dealing with the cold and snow. As I am typing this I have a blanket over me at the computer!!! The only way I can cope with it all is to head home every night and jump into the flannel sheets with a book! This is the current status of my nightstand. Truly, an embarrassment of riches. These are all the books that I have received as gifts for Christmas or bought over the last few months. The cards that you see are from Christmas, my birthday and our wedding anniversary....they all happen right around each other.
Wishing everyone a wonderful cozy Sunday!!!!!
