Adam & Eve and some sewing...

Greetings all and Happy Sunday morning....

For a couple months now, Terri and Marylin ,along with ,have been stitching a wonderful A&E Sampler SAL....They have completed their samplers and now I have finished stitching mine!! Will teach me to put off all the over one until the last!!!


 Adam and Eve Reproduction Sampler
  Cross Stitch and Needlework Magazine, May 2009 issue
  Lakeside Linen,Light Exemplar, 36 count
One thread over two

There was a floss conversion that Terri had determined, as the publication listed Olde Willow Silk threads....none of the three of us had these threads, so here is the conversion that was used...


C = DMC 3354
E = Crescent Colors - Cherry Tomato
F = GAST Lambswool where called for and on the faces.
H = Gast Shutter Green
K = GAST Cinnamon
P = GAST Mountain Mist
S = GAST Green Apple
T = Crescent Colors Green Onion (except for the over one,  GAST Harvest Basket was used so it would show up).
 
This was an absolutely fun stitch and I cannot believe how fast it went considering
 the size....approx 16 x 14 inches...
 
Here are a few more close ups...I'll let the photos do the talking...






Thanks again ladies for such an enjoyable journey stitching this sampler!!
 
***************
 
I also had short while in the craft room and as promised, I was able to sew two of the last Americana stitches into true finishes....
 
40 ct Days Gone by linen
specified threads

I  made a pin pillow and a diddie bag.....



I hope everyone enjoy's their Sunday....However it is planned, be safe....

Your A & E is beautiful. I have seen Terri's progress a couple of times when attending the Sampler Guild we both belong to - what a beautiful color conversion you gals have stitched.

As always, your other finishes are fun to look at and make me long for a couple uninterrupted days with my sewing machine!

This is so pretty and all three of you finished so quickly! Ithis is the first SAL that I even wondered what you were doing and have to agree It is certainly challenging. Is anyone of you three interested in selling your copy. Iet me kmow. would love to do this, this SAL thing. Maybe I can join one. I am serious about buying the pattern though and feel free to let me know at Kazicha@gmail.com thank you. Wonderful ans inspiring!
