Didn't expect this to come so quickly from Gitta's, but here it is: the Hannah Beeby 1816 Sampler by Timeless Designs. I've seen Carol working on it, and thought a lovely sampler to add to my little growing collection. Now to study it a bit, and decide on linen and color....
There's a SAL for this sampler as well, I've joined - it'll help me keep working on it! It's been a bit quiet on the SAL, and Carol's feeling a bit lonely over there, so hopefully I can keep her some company soon.
As for other news -
It's weather for Ducks here again, so I yesterday employed the services of my daughter and her friend to help me sandwich Mieke's baby-cord quilt. They did a lovely job, and DD's friend Kim was really inspired and....after having a chat with her, she wants to try her hand at quilting! Wonderful no?
Later, while listening to the rain ( after walking the dog in it I might add) and keeping "the patient" company on the couch, I snuggled under the quilt and began knotting it with found wool that matched perfectly with the fabrics. It's a good thing it's the temperatures have cooled down!
Have to cut this short, Since Ro can't walk, I've enlisted a friend of ours to accompany me on a long walk with Darwin. Since my back is a mess, I need help getting Darwin in and out of the car, washed down and rubbed after he's been for a swim. Also, if he gets stuck in the woods, or water I have a strong pair of arms to help me.
So, let me get into my hunting boots and Barbour and get wet!
(although I just love these walks with my dog, sometimes, just sometimes, I wish he was a goldfish....today is such a day because it's REALLY bad out there and I'd rather be stitching.....LOL!)
