Hello everyone...boy last week sure was busy. I was out of the house 3 nights...such a social butterfly LOL! Glad to be at home and get a bit of stitching done. First, I was able to pick up my May Day Sampler and I'm so happy with how it looks.
Bev at JoAnn's picked this frame, I wanted gold but not real gold-y...gold on the prim side.
And since I picked up one piece I dropped off another. This is my version of Blackbird Designs Le Poulet.
Now I made a few changes... the C & the N are a different color to denote my sons' initials. The F I did in 4 sided stitch for my last name. The second row of letters is off in several places. By the time I saw it I was in no mood to frog and restitch it, so I didn't.
As for the chicken, well she received quite a bit of plastic surgery. First I thought the chicken that was graphed was too scrawny so mine got buffed up and I changed the color of her feathers to Crescent Colors Old Marigold. Then she received some tail extensions and a beak reduction and some cute little comb additions. Oh very pretty if I say so myself...and I do!
I'm linking up with Kathy's Quilts for Slow Stitching Sunday and tomorrow I'll linkup with Super Mom - No Cape Vintage Embroidery. Both are great linkups with lots of pretty things to see.
Hope you are having a lovely Sunday. I've got my son and his bride coming for dinner and afterwards I hope to spend some quality time with a needle and thread.
