...I think those are autumn leaves that I finished stitching on Garden Spot Sampler tonight! Wow, the Victoria Clayton conversion sure is different from the Soie d'Alger used by Samplers and Such. The bottom leaf in the original is a vibrant, electric blue. Victoria's conversion makes it a baby blue... what a difference!! I think I would have preferred something closer to the original electric blue here, but I am still really pleased with the conversion. The sampler is really starting to grow now :-) ****Karen B. asked what fabric I am stitching this sampler on, so I figured I would edit that in here - it is on R&R 40 ct Creme Brulee linen, which I am starting to think may be a bit too dark for this sampler, but no turning back now! LOL!
Some more stash came in today... the much coveted Ottawa Sampler by Jeannette Douglas surely did not disappoint when I got to look at it. I have compiled my little list of fibers and buttons to order for it... I am excited to do this one... probably next year at this rate. And, the three opalescent solo luganas from Silkweaver are stunning. This photo does not do them any justice, but they are actually even prettier than the scans that were on Silkweaver's site... wow... they do such a great job!
Oops! Almost forgot... it is new DVD Release Tuesday... of course... this week it is Batman Begins and Land of the Dead (this one is all Mike, not my kind of movie at all)
