My Version

First of all, I would like to thank you for letting me join this blog in order to share my version of My Lady's Quaker.

After seeing this piece on a fellow blogger's site, I immediately fell in love with it.  I finally got the notion to purchase my pattern.  I started this piece on February 28, 2010.  My version is on 40ct Vintage Meadow Rue by Lakeside Linen.  I am a silk snob (sorry DMC users!) so I changed the colors to Belle Soie's Rose of Sharon, Chocolat, Elegant Eggplant and Fern Frond.  I'm not too sure about the Fern Frond, but it is growing on me.


Normally I'm a pretty fast stitcher, but this is my busy time of year at work.  So, I lack for stitching time on most nights.  Here is where I stopped on the weekend of the 13th and 14th of March with a good dash of time thrown in on the 16th as well......


Of course, in the craziness of my busy season I didn't realize that the piece of fabric I chose wasn't big enough.  I hate it when that happens!  So, I decided to leave off the alphabet on the bottom.  I guess it just wasn't meant to be!

I didn't get much in this weekend, but I'm planning on taking off a little early tonight to that I can put needle to fabric.  I tend to get a little grumpy when I can't stitch!  Hopefully after tonight My Lady will be a little farther than it is right now.


Thank you so much for letting me share.  I would love to have you come visit me on my blog.  Come sit and stitch a spell with me!

Happy Stitching!

Jennifer
