Here's my latest stitchity offering - sorry for the wonky view, but you know how it is, finish late at night, having only a chair back to drape your project on, and the flash washes out the colour of the tea-dyed fabric. You only realise that the pic has a bend in it when you post it to blogger - but that will all be fixed when you fling it into a frame and take another pic later that same week (fingers crossed!)
This is Spooky Stuff button Sampler, by Homespun Elegance. I stitched it using more of the lovely Nancy's handdyed floss - Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe - Swapped around the order of colours for the alphabet so that important letters were highlighted.
B = Bronny
I = I stitched it!
J= John (my maiden name and one of my son's -sorry Harry - you missed out this time!)
N= Needlecraft and Nancy (my mum's name)
S = Stitching!!
X = X-Stitch of course!!!
The chart called for Olde Brass embelishments to be stitched in each corner. I, of course, changed that to something I could afford. 4 nearly black buttons, to which I added brass toned seed beads as I stitched them on to the fabric, then added 8 stitched black legs to each. They make me smile, every time I see them.
Such an easy look - I might play with a bit of fabric later today and make a small fob with the same idea.
It's nearly TUSAL time again - and looking at my container, I can see so very few white floss orts. I really need to 'raise the baa' and get a wriggle on to some more sheepie stitching.
What do you call it when a flock of sheep roll down the hill?????
A LAMB-slide !!!!!
