If you ever get a chance to stitch this beautifully crafted Quaker Sampler by Ellen Chester's
"...with my Needle~...", find a Belle Soie that you love, and go for it... That is exactly what I have done here.... This Blue Lagoon shade of the Belle Soie has been rattling around in my cabinet for a while just waiting for the right project....... A stitch that took about a week or so, I cannot wait to get this one framed and hung.....
Quaker Sampling II
..with my Needle..
35 ct Weeks "Straw" linen
Blue Lagoon silk thread by Belle Soie
I loved this flowering urn in the center....
And, a heads up...You will possibly need more than one skein of thread...I consider myself VERY frugal with thread and had little frogging (this time.....) Look, I nearly ran out!!! Just 8 little strands left...Not enough to make the matching pin pillow I had wanted to make....sigh...
I need to get into my WIP basket and pull out another unfinished project that has been waiting for my attention....My "up for a challenge" project must go on...Since this was a new 2011 start/finish for me, I will see what beckons my call next~~~
Have a fantastic weekend everyone~~~
