Are you melting like I am? So over this disgusting
weather. We are suppose to get a break from the
heat in a day or so, but it will probably come along
with some nasty storms. I'll take it as long as the
wind isn't too bad. The yard to screaming for a good
watering, but there is no point in doing that now.
My potted plants are OK because I'm watering
about every other day ~ so so far so good for them.
It has been a while since my last post. I don't know
where the time goes, but it does. Faye has been
on vacation this week (lucky thing - but she deserves
it), so I'm holding down the fort alone and not
doing it very well. Unfortunately, the first thing to go
when I'm running out of time is the Blog, but I
must fill you in on the progress I have made
Slowly but surely I am moving along. I only
get to work on it for a very little while at night.
At this rate it will be a few more months
before it is finished, but I love it. It is going to
be fantastic hanging over the bed in my
guest bedroom. Cannot wait.
This is where I was when I first shared it.
And this is where I am now. I cannot wait to get
to the next row of letters.
This is the antique sampler. I didn't choose a
fabric as yellow/gold as the original, because of
where I want to hang it. But since it is only one
color you will be able to make it whatever you want.
Another interesting thing about this sampler is that
the J, K, W, X, and Y are missing. I am not a
sampler historian. Does this give a clue as to
how old it is or where it was stitched? If you
know, would you please share.
The original post was on June 20th. So you can see
it has taken me nearly a month to get this far. Pathetic,
I know. In the original post, I said if you
"comment" each time on the Blog when I do an
update, you will be put in a drawing for a copy
of the design and something else. So, if you wish to
try to win, just give me a quick "comment".
