No idea on the title -- but wouldn't a banana split be good right about now? I love those things!
Posted a picture here of a design I released earlier this year -- I Love the Birds. It's a really sweet little sampler, and quick to stitch. I even found a verse from Shakespeare that mentions all three birds (crow, lark, wren.) That's included with the graph, but I'll share it here, too:
"The crow doth sing as sweetly as the lark,
When neither is attended, and I think
The nightingale, if she should sing by day,
When every goose is cackling, would be thought
No better a musician than the wren.
How many things by season season'd are
To their right praise and true perfection!" (Merchant of Venice)
I had a productive day yesterday on my weekly "day off," and finished graphing the Jane Philpott Adam & Eve Sampler. I just have to select the final floss colors, fabric, and then check in with my model stitcher, and she'll be off and running.
Oh, and I had the greatest idea this weekend. I had a friend over to stitch, and we looked through my UFO's (not many, not many.) And one was the very start of a dragon pattern I was going to stitch for my son (can't even remember which one) about six years ago. It's one of those multi-page graphs with 100 floss colors that melt your eyeballs. I had finished part of a rectangular area that was about 3 by 5 inches or so. I decided, "I am NEVER going to finish this," trimmed around what I had stitched and put the fabric back in my stash. Now, I am going to make a UFO Pincushion with the piece that I stitched on (I'm going to see if I can find a UFO charm or something for it.) I'll put a picture up when I'm done. Funny!!!
