A sampler for Sunday

Where does the time go? and I not just speaking of the hour time change that annoys me twice a year. The weekdays go fast and the weekend go by at warp speed and before I know it, it is already Sunday evening. I missed the daylight and had to take these pictures inside so they could be better, but it is still a pretty sampler- My Quaker House by Blackbird Designs.

I'm very pleased with this frame. It is gold, but not shiny - like old gold. The little dentil molding detail sold me on this one. I love the soft colors of this piece - the rose colored house reminds me of old worn bricks.

The gold flosses were Weeks Dye Works Curry and Schneckly - I love Schneckly! such a lovely greeny gold and what a great name for this color.

I've been stitching a bit on another BBD piece and I have 2 older UFO by my stitching chair that only need a little attention and they will be done too. I dropped 3 pieces at the framers last week. Two had been stitched so long ago I don't remember when they were completed since I didn't date either one. Oh well, it will be nice to see them framed.

We're still hanging on to some nice weather here in southern Ohio. Temperatures in the 60's and sunny. It could stay like this all year round if it was up to me. I know the bad weather is inevitable and one needs to get prepared. Does buying more yarn and floss and fabric count as getting prepared? Yeah, I thought it did - LOL!

Have a great week and happy stitching-
