FAS update

Well, I finally got to spend a little time with my French Alphabet Sampler and thought I would share my progress with you. I am working on page 5 of 9 so I'm over half way finished now. I really do love the way this one is turning out. But it is BIG!!! It will be stunning over my mantle.

The chaos is still reigning but it is getting a bit better as time goes by. The cabinets are done except for the doors but at least now I can begin the task of putting the dishes away and cleaning off the horizontal surfaces. Who knows, I may be able to find the range soon! Everything is looking so good. It looks so much lighter, fresher, and much more air-y. I love it.

I am off now to begin my next models so I will have more to share soon. Stay tuned....

Forgiveness, originally uploaded by The Mad Stitcher.

This is Forgiveness by Vilma Becklin of ©Examplers from the Heart. I stitched this as a model for her on cream linen using Vikki Clayton silks. The photo really doesn't do this one justice. For some reason I just couldn't get the lighting and focus right. I finished it up Saturday evening and now I've got it all ready to send home.

Still living in chaos but it gets a bit better every day. At least i have my stitching--I can do without food!
