A sampler for Sunday

It has been a rather quiet weekend - my favorite kind - although I haven't gotten as much stitching in as I has hoped. Oh well, that's always the way it goes, isn't it? Here is another oldie but goodie from Ewe & Eye & Friends called Bee Virtuous.

I think this was charted with the line "Be virtuous" but I changed it to "bee my love". I liked the pun with all those cute little brass bees and that skep all done in satin stitch.

This piece has those spiderweb roses I love and I was pleased with the way I worked my son's initials into the piece.

I have been stitching on a old UFO BBD piece but it is slow going. I'm just not comfortable working in a hoop and the cast is still cumbersome. I'm keeping my fingers crossed (right hand only) and saying my prayers and taking calcium in hopes that on Thursday this cast comes off. Typing is still slow and I'm constantly hitting the caps lock key AND EVERYTHING COMES OUT LIKE THIS -- ARGHHH!!

Hope you have a great week - happy stitching!

  4. Another lovely sampler Carol. I will be hoping and praying your cast comes off Thursday.

  5. Quiet weekends are the best. Love the oldie but goodies. Fun Beehive.

    I hope that everything goes great Thursday and the cast comes off!
