Mary Allen Sampler by Samplers Remembered
40ct RR Creme Brulee
I'm so happy she's done!
Now for an Ann. Do you remember Ann? Ann Wheatley that is. The SAL for Ann Wheatley at the Attic finished in September, but with all that's been going on, I forgot to post my finish of her on my blog. Well, here she is.
Isn't she lovely?
I love her colors! I used the fabric and fibers provided by the Attic for the SAL.
And now my new start. Does anyone know who she is?
She's Ann Smith from the Scarlet Letter. Here's a link to her full picture. I'm using 36ct Vintage Light Examplar so that I don't go crazy when the over one parts come in. There is a ton of over one. I'm also using the AVAS called for. I love her colors! The inner gold border is supposed to be done in tiny eyelet stitches, but Marsha says you don't have to if you don't want to and I'm not. Too time consuming!
In other news, we managed to go visit a couple of colleges for the boy child this past weekend. Which is a good thing. We visited a massive college in the city, and a very small college north of us. Very good contrasts. The boy child seems to like both, which is great. I'm sure there are more college visits in our future.
The boy child has been going full speed with school stuff, of course. He got a part in the high school fall production of Noises Off, so every day after school has been 3 hours of rehearsal time. Makes for busy times when you throw in his regular non-school orchestra rehearsals and his jazz band rehearsals in the evenings 2 nights a week. Plus homework of course. But he is loving it and that's the important part. Let's just hope he gets all this college application stuff done in time!
Here is the boy child and Mia, sleeping partners once again. The boy child hasn't been getting enough sleep as usual, so a nap happened to make up for it.
Thanks as always for stopping by and saying hi. I always enjoy visiting with you all!
