Yes, I feel I'm becoming an expert at queen stitches. And the Richmond Sampler is the reason why. I will only show you the interesting parts of the sampler -- you won't see much progress from last week there.
Just know that that straight (or zig zag depending on how you look at it) border is full of queen stitches. (The baskets are queen stitches too.) And I've made the border meet all the way around and am working on the last side with the queen stitches. So yes, I feel I'm becoming an expert at the darned things. lol! I'm looking forward to finishing the ones in that border at least. Then I can approach the queen stitches in the baskets one basket at a time!
My better queen stitches are along the bottom and the other side. lol!
I was sure that Mia wasn't going to let me take pictures of my sampler in peace, but she was a good girl. This is what she was doing while I was snapping pics. (She's a bit sleepy I think.)
Such a good girl! And here she is in her favorite perch.
I wish I could leave the window open year round for her to enjoy. She so loves looking outside and watching (and smelling) the world go by.
In other news, the boy child had a bit of a bug this weekend. Not sure if it is just a cold or perhaps a bit more than that. If it's just a cold, it's a nasty one. He was definitely not feeling well Friday or Saturday. Luckily Sunday he was doing better and was ready to go to school this morning. I hope he's still feeling good now that he's at school!
Thanks as always for stopping by and saying hi. Have a great week, everyone!
