11. Mary Western 1820

Coming down the home stretch on the "15," and this week I'll have all large sampler projects I think. A few will be starts, and a few will be WIPs. Here's a WIP that I've enjoyed a lot: Mary Western 1820 by Samplers Revisited. I've gotten to the little striped, crested bird, although I haven't stitched his feet or crest yet. I'm stitching the sampler in the recommended NPI threads on 40 count LL in maritime white.


I love how clearly this sampler is charted, and it's a pleasure to work on the motifs.


I went grocery shopping today for salad stuff and brought back dandelion greens for the buns. They were so excited that Pink yanked the paper towel they were served on and tossed it over Elvis, who just continued calmly munching on his greens.


See you tomorrow with another large sampler--I'm off to make a salad for the humans!

So beautiful!! You know you're torturing me, don't you? lol! So where do you buy dandelion greens? i don't think I've ever seen them in my grocery store. Interesting.

Dandelion greens seem just the thing to bring out the 'fiesty' in Pink.
Another fabulous sampler. Please continue to torture Margaret... she has so little willpower when it comes to stash enhancement.

Where did you find dandelion greens at this time of year? The girls have been going so crazy for greens that I've been splurging on salads for them! LOL!!

Deb said...

Dang it Glenna. I can't come to your blog anymore. You're making me crazy with all your wonderful samplers! Like Margaret said, "you know you're torturing me, don't you?" LOL It's beautiful and one that I'm going to add to the list!!

Your sampler choices are just amazing! Another beauty, for sure!!! Glad Pink was so excited about her treat but are you sure she just doesn't want Elvis to have any face time with your devoted followers????

The Bunny Paper Chase!

I suppose bunnys and cross stitch is not a good left-alone situation?

Cari said...

I've really enjoyed looking through all of your challenge pieces, Glenna. They all are so lovely--especially the whale hunting piece!

They sure like salad huh? Just look at them and those mess in their rabbit hutch. Anyway, I love your art work project. I love it. You sure have a gifted craft. I just hope I will also have the guts to work on one. I envy you for being so creative.
