Tax season is still keeping me pretty busy. Today I split my time between house cleaning and catching up on my blog reading. Yes, the blog reading was the most fun part! My stitching blog friends have been so busy with wonderful projects.
I got to baby sit for Bella (my new grandpuppy) a few days last week. We had a great time! Here she is laying in my lap while I worked. I didn't want her to leave!
On March 6th and 7th, the Tudor Rose Sampler Guild hosted Amy Mitten for a mystery sampler workshop. She designed the sampler and the mystery especially for the guild. I really enjoyed hearing the 10 chapters of the mystery as she revealed the 10 parts of the sampler over the two days. I'll post more about the sampler as I stitch each section. Here's a bit of a sneak peek from her model: the tudor rose at the top of the sampler with the detached petals. I loved learning how to make these.
I got just a few shots of Amy teaching and the room we were in. You can tell my empty spot by the Mighty Bright Floor lamp. I was so glad I decided to carry it along. It really helps on 40ct linen.
One of the best parts was the display of samplers that Amy brought. Her designs are all so beautiful and I love how she dyes the fabrics to give her pieces that wonderful antique look. I'll leave you to drool. Enjoy!
