Hi everyone! Well, not yet a finish with Her Sampler but almost there. I’ve run out of one colour (DMC 3011) and, of course, it’s the colour that’s used most!! When I started I knew I might be cutting it fine whether I’d have enough or not but hoped for the best. By the start of this week I knew I was going to be out of luck. I won’t be able to pick up another skein until the weekend (and hopefully will be able too, there’s only one place here that sells DMC and it can be a bit hit or miss on finding the ones you want). I know that DMC are usually okay with dye lots but I couldn’t tell you how long I’ve had this skein and, just in case there is a slight variation in colour, I reckoned the best thing to do was to stitch the borders so they, at least, would be exactly the same. If there is a slight change in colour it hopefully wouldn't be so noticeable being used in the motifs.
Other than that, these arrived today so my plans for this afternoon include getting them potted up and then hoping that with lots of tender, loving care they will grow!!!
They don’t look like too much at the moment, do they?! A friend’s daughter was doing a fund-raiser in their Guide group where you could order plants from this company. There are five plants – 2 peppers, a tomato, courgette and aubergine. I’ve grown peppers and tomatoes before, with mixed success, but the courgette and aubergine will be new to me. These are all varieties that can be grown in containers. Now all that's needed is a warm, sunny summer and lots of luck!!!!
And before I go, thought I’d share the PSS Quaker Calendar that I have on display this month. I’m still dragging my feet on getting the last two in this series stitched but hope to get them done at some point this year.
Hoping all is well with you and yours.
Until next time ……
