Thanks - and older pictures...

Thank you all for your wonderful comments! It's nice to hear from you!

Not much to update, so, I'll share some older stitching pictures. :-)

This is one I stitched way long ago... It's dated on the back 1992, but, I love it! It's from an old Cross Stitch and Country Crafts magazine.

This is my color conversion on Bent Creek's Swirly Sampler. I stitched this for my daughter's room -- yes, her walls are purple!

Edit: for Sharon - I used silver braid for the swirlys, and a lot of silver beads in the 'empty' spots.

And this is another one for her room -- Seka's Watercolour Butterflies -- but, I changed the colors to what she likes. (Aquas and Purples)

This is one my sister, Marie, stitched for me in 1987. Isn't it darling?

That's about it for today. Von... We did get a bit of sunshine this afternoon, but, are back to showers off and on. Next week they are calling for nicer weather. I guess it takes that long to get here from where you are!

Stitching on tonight: CCN Ladybugs and Bumblebees

I absolutely LOVE! your swirly sampler colors. Your'e making me jealous here in Florida. Are those mostly metallics you used? It looks very sparkly. Great pictures!

Glad to hear the sun has been teasing you with his presence here and there. Our weather should be returning to normal beginning Saturday - hurray! The last two evenings we've had big wind/thunderstorms after the hot, hot days.

I think Swirly Sampler by BC is one of the most often color-changed designs I've seen. Everyone I've seen has been so refreshing. I did it in the original colors on tea-tyed linen with the silver charm for the "S." I have not yet had it framed. Gotta whole bunch of those unframed things put away :-)

I LOVE your Swirly Sampler! I haven't checked your old posts yet, but I was wondering... would you mind sharing the colors you chose?
