I spent the entire morning running errands & shipping orders
I was looking for an accent lamp/light and found this beautiful old BLUE painted lamp
that was rewired and now sets upon my olde cupboard ~
...and now resting sweetly in it is one of Tina's dolls.
I love it so...I will add some tiny heart & bird ornies to it for St. Valentine's Day...
it is a nice, large sampler ~ done in blues, creams, whites & flax-colored threads
I will be hanging it as soon as I can locate the hammer!!!
the sampler's title is:
"Susannah Hoffer's Marking Sampler"
and it is a 40ct fabric when stitched over one thread...
I will stitch this pattern over 2 threads so it works out to be 20ct.
(a little easier on the eyes!)
but, you can stitch it onto whichever fabric you choose !
I'll share progress pictures soon...
I'm off to make Pesto Chicken for supper,
then off for a walk in the woods with my dog-friends before the sun sets on this day.
