Alphabetissimo, by Papillon Creations, stitched with 2 colors of NPI Silks, 1 over 2, on Picture This Plus fabric in 32 ct Sterling. I will be framing this soon.
I'm so pleased I was able to finish this on my vacation. Now I have to hit the books; school started on Tuesday--part of the reason I took this week off. This semester will not be for the faint-hearted: two courses--Advanced Accounting--the last and most difficult of the five "basic" accounting courses; everything after this is a specialty course. And Taxation for Corporations, Trusts, Estates and Partnerships.
What project is next? I've got plenty going now, but I'd like to use this opening in my very loose "rotation" to introduce another pretty sampler. Possibly Christmas at HRH? Perhaps Ann Rayner. Perhaps a whitwork sampler on another Picture This cut--maybe white on pink or another shade of blue. I feel inspired by One Stitch at a Time--she's doing the English Whitework Sampler by the Needle's Prayse. I also own the Victoria Sampler whitework Christmas band sampler, so maybe that. Or Sarah Woodham by Shakespeare's Peddler (not whitework, of course). We'll see. You can be sure we'll be investigating the possibilities!
(Peaches, investigating the possibilities.)
