Hi everyone! I know, it’s been longer than usual since I posted but things have been busy around here and my stitching (and computer time!) has taken a little bit of a back seat. My daughter was home last week, along with her boyfriend, so I was spending some mother-daughter time and enjoying every minute of it. They headed back to England on Saturday night and the house seemed very quiet on Sunday but, it did mean that I lifted a needle, thread and some fabric again and started on this…..Barrick Samplers Sampler Folk on 32ct sandstone linen using suggested DMC threads
Yes, another one that’s been in my stash for a while but one that called my name. I do love to stitch alphabets (or wording of any kind) and I guess I needed another fix of letters after finishing BBD Pink Hill Manor. When I stitched this little guy yesterday he made me smile ….
I’m thinking this should be called Sampler Folk aka Mr Stripey Pants with attitude!!!! He just cracks me up. I don’t know about you but I think it looks like he’s wearing sunglasses, they just don’t look like eyes to me, and it gives him an air of 'don't mess with me'!! I’m looking forward to stitching the rest of the little folk to see how they turn out!!
Thank you for all your lovely comments on my finished BBD Pink Hill Manor! I do appreciate that you take the time to comment and love reading them all. Right now I am way behind on my blog reading but plan to get caught up in next few days. Meanwhile, the Wimbledon tennis has started and I’ll be parking myself in front of the tv for the next two weeks, stitching in hand and enjoying the tennis.
Hope all is well in your part of the world!
Until next time…..
