Brrr...

words not spoken
 too often
 as of late...
brrr

With windows open overnight
we woke to a chilly house...
I was actually cold.
The cooler weather is most welcome.
Now,
if it would only rain!

Not a whole lot to report on,
I've done a little of this
 and
 a little of that...
charting new cross stitch,
sketching new punch needle,
and
 in between,
working on
reproducing
the J.M. Gardner, 1888 sampler...
I had a change of heart with my first floss selection,
I think I've got my floss pallette where I like it now...
What do you think?
I decided to stay true to the original,
 with the floss.
The only change will be in size,
the reproduction will be
a miniature version
 of the
 antique sampler...
petite & precious!

With thy needle & thread,
Brenda

Thank you for keeping it authentic. I really appreciate that. I have written myself a note and posted it on my monitor. Must stitch it.
