This is my Anniversaries of the Heart stitched on one GIANT piece of 32 count evenweave - a dove gray color. My oldest son looked this one over and pronounced it an "epic sampler". I like that - LOL! And in finding out that it will be personalized with names and birthdays, he mentioned that he would love to hang it in his house - WHOA.... knock me over with a feather. He has never expressed an interest in having my cross stitch in his home. I know he loves the quilts I've scattered about his place (just 3 so far but more to come) but this is a new viewpoint. I will say that it has re-energized me to work on this one, but I'm not sure if I want it to hang in his house or mine. Perhaps we can work out a time-share arrangement.
Anyway it has been a while since I've shown this and I do think this is one of the best series BBD has done. Which is saying a lot since I have almost all of the Loose Feathers series charts and have paid big bucks for some of the OOP ones. Oh well, they make me happy. Here's a couple of close ups of the individual months.
|Swan Lake - July|
I'm thinking of adding a mother of pearl heart shaped button to this one since I don't have any family events for July.
|Clara Ellen - August|
Sorry this one is a bit blurry. I just couldn't get a good picture. I'm adding both my Grandma's and my Mom's birthdays to this one.
|Happy Birthday - June|
And this is the one I started last night while watching Skyfall on Netflix - great movie- but hard to keep track of your counting when you are caught up in things being blown to smithereens - just saying - LOL!
So I realize I still need a couple of skeins of over dyed floss for this and the next couple of charts - off to engage in a little retail therapy.
