As you can see I have been flying along with Elizabeth. I have nearly finished the farm house and then besides the farm house there are 3 big bushes which are all French knots. Actually over the last couple of days I have done a lot of French knots. The big tree in the house is full of them as is the single tree beside the gazebo and so are the bushy trees above the big house etc. I find I am becoming an expert at them along with stem stitch lol.
Yesterday I picked up my copy of The Sampler and Antique Needlework magazine and saw an ad for their Just Cross Stitch magazine. Apparently this sampler was in it recently. I did this one about 25 years ago. It is really beautiful but I was a bit disappointed when it came back from being framed as the framer had put non reflecting glass on it and I found that all the beautiful blues etc. couldn't be seen to their best advantage.
I also noticed at the back of the magazine that The Scarlet Letter is featuring Elizabeth Cox Sampler in their new ad.
I haven't posted much over the last couple of weeks as my DH has been ill with a serious flu bug which affected him in the throat. He ended up sounding like The Godfather. Also we have still been having trouble with the computer that I normally use freezing all the time. It ended that it had to be sent away. Hopefully it will be back soon.
Well, I can feel the weather changing. It is amazing as soon as Autumn kicks in I can start to feel the change. Must be getting old lol.
I hope you all have a lovely week and wherever you are the weather is kind to you.
