A Little Bit of Stitching

I worked on "With My Needle" a little yesterday. I finished filling in the yellow on the girl's dress and got a few swirlies stitched.

I also worked on "Earth Sampler" a little more. I actually ended up using Karen's idea of using Crescent Colours Cocoa Bean instead of GAST Sable. My Sable was a little too light. Hope you don't mind Karen!

My six year old is sick, so I don't know how much stitching I'll get done today. He has caught a nasty cold. I hope no one else gets it, but knowing us, we will all get it! Hopefully Zicam will help! Write soon!

  10. Beuatiful stitching. The Earth Sampler looks like a pretty quick stitch, but also looks like it involves a lot of counting. The colours are great.
