Just a quick one, since I'm getting ready to head out to In Stitches in a bit, to work this afternoon. Here's a peek at Mary Ann Gollins. She's coming along nicely:
And I started Amy Breucken's April Lilybell Sampler. It's a fun little start, and the WDW 30 count fabric makes it a very relaxing stitch. (Two over two--something I never do.) The fabric, in "Morris Blue," is soft, but not floppy, and nicely dense. I love the little belly button on Lilybell.
I'm enjoying it so much that I'm going to do the May Rosebud sampler also. ("Rosebud is pretty but prickly.") I have the perfect color of Lakeside (left), but it's 40 count, and I'm thinking I should buy the called-for pink WDW so I can hang them together and so the buttons and beads are the right scale.
Oh, and a question I had last week about sharing my conversions for projects that I'm working on. Absolutely--I'm happy to. I'm a bit disorganized and don't always write down my colors as I convert on the fly, but I'll take a look at Ann and her project bag and write down my conversion a little later this week and email anyone who wants it. If you want it, just leave me an email address in my comments. The same with Mary Ann Gollins, which I'm converting. Bear in mind that I'm not completely true to the DMC chart because I adjust based on the fabric color (no sense having threads fade into the background), what I have in my stash and whether I want to dial the intensity up or down. Just my taste
Peaches: "I am pretty but prickly too." Yes, that's true; Peaches Prefers that you don't Pet her, although she's always eager to touch you with her nose and then run off. That's love from Peaches. Pink will sit next to you, getting closer and closer until he's almost in your lap, and present his head to be rubbed. And Elvis, unless he's in a mood, will let you rub his head and scritch his bottom, and then run in circles around you, honking gently, the only noise any of the bunnies ever makes.
Happy week ahead!
