Above is my progress with Needleprint's Beatrix Potter Sampler...it's really coming along well! I'm mixing up different hand dyed silks by Viki Clayton: Everlasting in the big flower, Quince 1411 which is the solid dark mauve of the medallion below and Fish Pepper 4425 which is the lighter mauve seen in the star portion of the medallion above.
I so enjoy stitching this sampler during this stressful time while Frank is looking for employment and while the dog heals up from her stomach surgery and gets over her ulcer. Yes, I have a dog with an ulcer...we have her on a special diet of steamed rice and chicken, and she seems to be loving being spoiled!
I'm loving how the different colors of the silk play off of each other. I pretty much decide which color I'm using at a whim and whatever looks good at the time...
