In the beginning of March, I came across this SAL going to start very soon. I told myself no I did not need to start yet another project and definitely not one this big. Did my self listen??? Nope! I thought I really needed this as another little pillow on my patchwork quilt in our bedroom. Small it is as I am stitching this one on 30 count off-white Flemish farmer's linen 1 over 1. I do love stitching this over one! The smallness of the stitch seems to do something magical to the piece.
In my quest to use more and more of my stash, I pulled colors out of my jars of overdyed threads for this project. I am using Crescent Colours: Jakey Brown, Clay Pot, Country Lane, Dandelion Stem, Desert Mesquite, Milady's Teal, Wavy Navy, Whatley Woodlands and Bramble Bush.
The next section has the first of three alphabets. I do love anything with an alphabet on it and this one has three and my other favorite thing....a house. But for now, I will enjoy my pretty blue flowers on a sunny spring day.
Hope you are having a day filled with stitching sunshine wherever you are!
What beautiful soft colours, it's going to be so attractive.
Looks so beautiful!
So beautiful blues ! As the sky today !

I too have been looking at this sampler...telling myself no...I have too much to finish....we will see who wins this one...my practical self....or my stitching self...in the meantime, yours is beautiful and I absolutely love the colors. Have a happy day and Hugs from CA.
Lovely little stitches. Unlike you I run from 1/1 stitching, but sometimes it is a necessary evil! LOL!!
I love the little quilt on your header, so warm and inviting.
How lovely is that Heidi, I think you may have enabled me again ,I was not going to this one but seeing it over one well that finished me! as you know I love stitching over one.May I ask where did you get that linen, I know I am just a copy cat!!!

Leuk dat je nu op de "blauwe tour" bent! Het ziet er weer prachtig uit. Waar laat je 's avonds al die kussens wanneer je moe je bed in wilt stappen? Hugs en groetjes
It is really pretty and I agree about the added charm of being so small. I can't wait to see the alphbets and the house!
This is a beautiful design, I really like the colors! I can see why you couldn't resist ;-)!
