July 2013 IHSW

Hi, Everyone.

Well, here I am stitching some more on my long-time stitching project, Sarabande.  It is a French-style sampler by Long Dog Samplers.  I changed out the original six colors which were browns, gray, and black - a bit drab for my taste.  I substituted three shades of purple/lavender.  One of them is a very fine braid in sparkly lilac. and three coordinating shades of teal/mint.  I'm stitching it on white evenweave (28 ct.) which has strands of teal and lilac sparkles running through it.  I am about half-way done with the sampler, and hope to be done with it this year.  That means a lot of stitching, and very few distractions by smaller projects!  The lavender motif I'm currently working on is also about half-way done.

Sarabande Sampler - so far!

Happy Stitching!
