Yay! I have finished the Victoria Sampler Biscornuments series! I made the last ornament my final start of 2022 on New Year’s Eve, and was able to complete it on New Year’s Day!
I “saved” this one for last because it struck me as less interesting than the others but I think it just didn’t photograph well. It is so bling-y! I’ll get right to FFO-ing these last 2 ornaments right away. It will be great to put away this chart.
Meanwhile, I spent a good chunk of January 2 doing a silk conversion for a sampler I want to stitch this year, Though He Seemth Sleeping by Lucy Beam. I think I’ve just about got it…there are 20 colors in the chart but I probably will not even use all of these. Or maybe I will. Anyway, I think I’ve got plenty to choose from as I get it going.
You can appreciate that this is one of my favorite color palettes. And I have the perfect piece of linen, 36 count Duxbury from Fox and Rabbit. It is suitably aged and “grubby” looking to match the original, but not too grubby for me! I don’t usually love a lot of dark “stained” look mottling but this one is just fine.
This week gets back to normal for us. Yay!, and ugh. I’ve enjoyed a good break from “normal” which has been so nice, and it will also be nice to get back to regular routines , but I know I will also appreciate the break more once it is all over! Does that make sense? Have a great first week of the year!
