Greetings, All! I've been stitching eyelets this week! Scarlet Letter's Dorothy Walpole is full of them, and while I don't really MIND stitching them, they are time-consuming and a little tedious. I've been working industriously away on the alphabet eyelets:
And then came to the realization that this entire band is made up of eyelet stitches as well. (Fabric: Picture This Plus in Legacy 40 count, using the charted AVAS fibers).
So mid-week, to take a little break, I started "Town House Sampler" by Brenda Keyes of The Sampler Company. I'm using my favorite go-to fabric (again, PTP in Legacy, 40 count), and I did a little conversion from the DMC to silks--a combination of AVAS and NPI from my stash. I'm happy to say there are no eyelet stitches in this sampler! It's also not huge, as you can tell from my progress of not quite a week.
And here we have ten pounds of bun in a five-pound box. Just before I shot this I saw little Peaches try to squeeze herself into this box as well. There just wasn't room, so she went off to the corner to pout.
Peaches is happier now; I went out into the garden and gathered some salad for the bunnies.
Happy week ahead!
