A Stitcher's Companion

Got some bad news about my only sibling's health the other day and knew that I needed to calm myself down and the best way to do that is with stitching. Unfortunately, my thoughts were too scattered to concentrate much, so I grabbed a one color mini sampler to stitch on, and so far it's worked.


Here's what I have so far:


Design: A Stitcher's Companion from the book Honeysuckle Manor (page 23)


Designer: Blackbird Designs


Fabric: 28 count Picture This Plus linen in Legacy


Fiber: Fibers: Crescent Colours Belle Soie silk in Old Crow







Not bad for only stitching on it two days :P. I got to go to my weekly stitch in at Stitcher's Paradise and that helped a great deal. I absolutely adore the ladies there and finally feel like I am making friends here. I can't wait for next Wednesday! :D


Well, I need to bolt for now. Got some stuff I need to do before I can stitch some more. Hope everyone is having a wonderful week! :)
