I don’t have a lot of progress on the wips I’ve worked on but there is a few that have none. So to keep from boring you with pictures you’ve seen before I’ll just tell you which are unchanged:
You’ve seen the beginning of “Africa” the up-date of AW80S, so here is a picture of “Rose Sampler” with a little progress.
I started the last design in the “Black & White” project, it shouldn’t take long to finish.
Last but not least is the finished “African Women”; at least all of the stitching is done. I have been doing my happy dance for the last four days, I wanted to share as soon as I finished but decided to save it for this post. When I decide on the right fabric to finish it with I will post another picture.
I found this chart a while back and I thought it was really interesting.
The head and neck area of the design is not stitched but made of paper. Paper faces like this were done back in the 19th century on samplers and needlework all the time. Some were even painted directly on the sampler. You can either use the picture of the face the way it is or glue it to thicker cardboard before gluing it to the sampler.
I went out to Barnes & Noble today and I found this magazine with this simple sampler chart. I am not normally a sampler person but every now and then one will catch my eye. This sampler is stitched with DMC blue/purple 4240 color variations on 28 ct quaker evenweave.
Wow that is a total of 8 wips and here I am looking at other charts, I need to start something new like I need another hole in my head. If you ask my DH he will say I must have fallen and bumped my head. I don't think I will start anything new anytime soon but who knows. Well like others have said if you are still here after all of this, I thank you for stopping back by and welcome to the new viewers and followers, hope you'll comment and come back soon. To all of my US friends have a safe and happy Labor Day weekend. I'm off to make some more little xxs.
