Hi friends! I would like to show you a gift I received from our friend Mary. She went to an estate sale and bought a collection of linens. She gifted me with these lovely guest towels since they have pink and she thought of me. She also included the sweet pink notecards. Thank you once again Mary for your generous gifts.
Now I know what you are thinking. Pink swans?!? Is Vickie crazy? Quite possibly! I stitched the first leg of each cross stitch in VMSS Baby Pink and White, then followed through with the second half of the cross stitch in B5200 on top. Keep in mind, I am doing this so the swans show up on my 25ct cream Dublin linen, NOT because I fancy pink swans.😉 This is how it turned out.
Instead of CC Camouflage, I used DMC 3023 and647
Instead of CC Magnolia Blossom, I used VMSS Baby Pink and White and B5200
Instead of GA Parchment, I used Ecru
Instead of GA Tin Bucket, I used DMC 3768
Instead of GA Toasted Barley, I used DMC 644
Instead of WDW Dolphin, I used DMC 169
The DMC alternatives given in the pattern did not match up to the picture. That is why I had to pick my own.
I found the capital letter N in my BBD Honeysuckle Manor pattern book. I just used the satin stitch as directed in the pattern.😊
Yes, Brian and I are married 25 years this year. October 3rd is our Wedding Anniversary.
Okay. Am I the only person who has NOT read Jane Eyre? Maybe. I thought it was time I fixed that. So I listened to it instead.😉 I really liked this book a lot, but wowza, this is a looOooOng book.
Jane Eyre is the story of a small, plain-faced, intelligent, and
passionate English orphan. Jane is abused by her aunt and cousin and
then attends a harsh charity school. Through it all she remains strong
and determinedly refuses to allow a cruel world to crush her
independence or her strength of will. A masterful story of a woman's
quest for freedom and love. Jane Eyre is partly autobiographical, and
Charlotte Brontë filled it with social criticism and sinister Gothic
elements. A must read for anyone wishing to celebrate the indomitable
strength of will or encourage it in their growing children.
