A Little More Ann

I worked on Ann quite a bit this weekend. Well, not yesterday because I decided our little condo needed some spring cleaning. It amazing how fast the clutter piles up - especially with three boys running around! Anyway, here is my progress pic...

Ann Grant as of 3/27/11

40 ct. Summer Khaki over-dyed with Tan Rit Dye, various silk threads (1 over 2).

I'm loving seeing all the Ann's out there in blog world. So far I've seen Sampler Lovers, Margaret's, and Deb's. They're all so pretty! I love seeing how they look from the top since I'm starting at the bottom. They give me inspiration to keep going! :)


P.S. I think that funky bird is actually a peacock, not a turkey.

  6. I love seeing your progress on this piece because you're starting at the opposite corner than me. And I do think that is a peacock - or at least hope so. Pretty funky for a turkey, don't you think?

  12. It is lovely to see this stunning sampler from the bottom. Yours is looking wonderful and I love everything that you have done.
    Yes, cleaning can really be the pits sometimes. I usually spend all day cleaning and at the end of the day, I always wonder where I have been. - Sandra.

  16. Love Ann Nicole! Such fabulous colors! Enjoy your time with her! Choosing to do spring cleaning is good, I guess, it makes you happy when you get to sit down and stitch a bit after that!
