Quaker Christmas Wednesday

I got just a little more stitched on QC yesterday. I finally got to stitch a little yellow! That was a thrill - let me tell ya! :)

Quaker Christmas
Before

Quaker Christmas as of 3/11/09
After - 40 ct. Vintage Examplar, Belle Soie silks Cranberry, Collard Greens and Butterscotch.

I was planning on starting Primitive Needle's "ABC Hornbook" today since I finished "Simply Live" last week, but I haven't gotten the fabric for it yet from Silkweaver. So I was thinking of starting Primitive Needle's "Earth Sampler" instead.

Primitive Needle "Earth Sampler"

I'm thinking of going with this 40 ct. linen I dyed a while ago. It sort of looks like the linen that they used for the model. Well, nothing else going on here - just hanging out with Matthew. He's being such a good boy, maybe he'll even let mommy stitch today?? :) Write later!

  5. QC is looking great! I also picked up teh Earth Sampler, just need to decide on fabric and get the threads. I am also going to use 40ct on this piece. I am working on Yule Sampler by PN and it is a very fun stitch.

  17. I bet you loved stitching that yellow bit! :) QC is looking terrific, Nicole. Earth Sampler looks like it's calling you (I'd love to see you do this one, that's why). I think you should definitely start this next. Have fun!

  19. I love your Quaker Christmas and I know what you mean when you can add another thread color! I am going to stitch a tulip and hopefully get another motif going on my Quaker Virtues! It is really fun to stitch on. The goats have kept me busy but today they are starting on solid food, hip hip horray! Now maybe I can get more stitching done today!

  20. I'm just reading and your blog and it is so nice. Love to see your projects. I will comment and tell you that your colors for QC are absolutely gorgous. I did this one last year but used the colors called for in the pattern but I like yours better! It took me about 9 months to get that one done but so worth it.
