Look what I found in the garden this week! A very pretty surprise. All of my other hellebores bloom later.
This is one reson the NW stays pretty in the winter. Green everywhere!
While the SBA has been busy with the antique sampler, I have been stitching France F. Now if France were here, she would say," That is NOT my sampler." When I chose the colors, I eliminated some of hers. I was in the midst of that sinus thing and just did what came easy. She used colors I usually don't use and I was not in a risk taking mood. I like the way it looks but do feel a bit guilty.
Here was my first attempt at stitching on 40 count. It did stress my eyes a bit. However, it was very bright stiff linen. The linen looks to be a softer color in the picture . It was a bright white. Plus, I did not like the stiffness. So I will try 40 ct. again.I hope you all have a great week-end! On Sunday we will be watching football. GO SEAHAWKS!
