I'm moving right along with Prairie Schooler's "Where There are Bees" sampler. It's stitching up quite nicely if I do say so myself!
In real life I steer well clear of bees (though honeybees are sort of cute in a fuzzy way), but she looks sort of regal here, don't you think?
And here is her hive. I like stitching bee skeps generally. There is something sort of pleasing about them.
I am working now on the lower border which is a little tedious going, but once it's stitched I think the rest will fill in fairly quickly.
As for the linen color problems I was having . . . I am getting used to the color for the Lizzie Kate Halloween mystery sampler, but I have decided I need something different for the Prairie Schooler Christmas Sampler. There is still plenty of time for that one. I have decided I don't like stitching (at least not a large project) on Jobelan too much. The color is just so-so. I might stick with plain reliable Lambswool. Has anyone stitched the Christmas Sampler? I came across this over one stitching of the design--isn't it gorgeous? Any ideas of what linen Véro L. might have used?
In any case I have plenty of things to keep me busy while I think about it all.
Hope everyone is having a great Memorial Day weekend. I'm off to pick up my needle now...
