I've been working like a madwoman on Catharine McNeal 1843. What a treat she is to stitch! I'm working my way toward the house, because it's huge and I really want to see how it comes together.
Close-up of the four-sided stitch that makes up the second alphabet. It's fiddly, but fun.
And Liz Savilles. This sampler is an easier, quicker stitch than many of the ones that I'm working on. It's fun and undemanding. The colors and posy in the center remind me of raspberries, so I've had that Prince song, Raspberry Beret, running through my head, complete with squeal. Ugh. Hee--now some of YOU will have it too....
Little Peaches has popped out to wish our Bunny blogger friend, Rabbits Guy, a speedy recovery from the 'flu. Get well soon, RG!
I'm off to make a raspberry yogurt cake (I have a bag of frozen raspberries that will make a nice addition to the plain cake I normally make. Thanks, Prince!).
Happy week ahead!
