I have only a few stitches to go on my Nantucket Sampler from BrightNeedle. The model is shown stitched over 1 on natural linen – 32 count I think. I ended up going over 2 on 40ct lambswool for my sampler. I used the called for threads except the checkerboard borders inside the square, I switched that to DMC 524.
Does anyone know the name of this little flower? It’s a bit like a vine and growing near the seawall. I think they look a little like miniature pansies. You can see the inadvertent savage tan I’m getting from all this living on the lake here…
Another stitching project nearly finished, Keeping the Bees, a kit from Shepherd’s Bush. I also have Tending the Blooms here in my stitching basket to go with this sweet little guy.
I’m finishing up another batch of IH&B Traveling Stitcher sets today, back to work!
Thanks Anne for the flower help. I think after a bit more research what is growing down by the lake is called
Germander Speedwell(P) — Veronica chamaedrys — Family: Scrophulariaceae — Figwort
