January 12, 2017

Another crazy day! Not bad, just busy. I had some great laughs along the way so it made it all a bit more bearable. 

Today's project is an oldie but a goodie. It's Hearts & Flowers, The Violet Sampler from The Drawn Thread. Well if you know anything about me, you probably know my favorite color is purple. I love violets, too, although my favorite flowers are irises. 

This project was out of print when I discovered it. I searched and searched and finally found someone who had the chart so I bought it. I bought a piece of Dark Lavender 32ct linen and all the flosses and gemstone hearts to complete the piece. I started stitching and then got sidetracked. I don't remember if I had an issue with the project or just started on something else. Anyway, I'd still like to see this finished. It's so full of gorgeousness that it needs to be finished. So, I'll just have to suck it up and do it!

More tomorrow!

  1. This one is really pretty. Could this be one that gets a little attention every month or week to help you move it along?

    1. I'm glad you like it. I'll try to work it into rotation somehow. Of course, I'm supposed to work on it during the rest of this month so maybe I'll get motivated and make some genuine progress.
