Harriet Is Slowly Moving Along

It doesn't look as if I have done that much work on Harriet since my last post but she is slowly coming together. I am still working on her border which seems to take forever.

I have completed the left hand side and I am now about a quarter of the way along on the top section. I will be so happy to see the end of her. She is a beautiful sampler, but she has her ways about her:). I suppose if I was this old that I would play up as well.

I have also been working on Isabella Johnstone. I have been working on her off and on. I thought that she would look lovely with the sheep and I am looking forward to working on the cow. I thought that this sampler would be quite appropriate as my DH grew up on a dairy farm on the North Coast of NSW.

I thought that I would show you the lovely jewellery that my DIL Alison is making. She has opened an Etsy Shop called Coloured Squares. She is making some lovely earrings and brooches made out of lovely pieces of material and laces etc. Aren't they beautiful. She is a very clever young lady and we are all very proud of her. I have put a link to her Etsy shop if you would like to stop by.

Love these earrings. They are really lovely.

This brooch would look lovely on a nice jacket. Love the Autumn shades.

Another lovely pair of earrings. They are in my favourite colours red, white and blue. I love red, it always gives a lift to things.

This one is my favourite. I love the old piece of lace that she has added. Another brooch that would look lovely on a nice jacket.
It is a bit chilly here in the mountains today. It was quite nice earlier in the week. We had some lovely Spring days, but yesterday and today, there is a bit of a chill in the air. I think I need to light my fire as I have cold feet. If my feet are cold. I am cold.
I love Spring, I picked a beautiful jug of old fashion roses the other day and they have given me so much pleasure. They are all in the very pale pink shades along with some ivory ones. Their perfume is really lovely and they are near my stitching chair. I love smelling them as I stitch away slowly with Harriet:).
Thank you for stopping by. I always enjoy your comments. I hope that you have a wonderful weekend.
