As I go along it will sort itself out.
On the stitching side of life I am at the moment enjoying a Moria Blackburn sampler
"The Hours Of Prayer". It is coming along nicely.
This photo I took a couple of weeks ago so I have been able to do alot more on it.
This week I receveived the Needlepoint silks to get started on my next project out of the Sampler and Antique Needlework Quarterly magazine .
I am going to do the 1819 Elizabeth Powell sampler which caught my eye while in a wonderful shop in Katoomba.
I am going away on the 3rd Novemeber for 3 weeks sailing the Southern Australian ocean from Perth to New Zealand and porting in Sydney late November so this shall be my project while on the high seas.
I just love the words to this lovely sampler. One of my favourite birds in these old samplers is the Peacock. Isnt he lovely?
So I will try for the first time to sew in silk and I could only find one place in Sydney that sold the Needlepoint Silk and it arrived and Im eager..lol..
I am hopeing to join in on a SAL with Nicola from Stitching By A Cornish Seaside with a lovely sampler from the 1710, SWD German Band Sampler. Which I have ordered the chart this morning but will only stitch this one in DMC.
I have tried stitching on Linen but I do enjoy 18 count aida and prefer it over linen. So both these will be on 18ct.
Well Im expecting my eldest daughter with her 3 children for dinner and a splash in the spa so better get some housework done...
tata for now......
