An Emblem of Love

I finished my section of Suzanne's Emblem of Love RR and have been waiting for a bright day to take a picture. Unfortunately we have not had any bright days lately (my SAD is taking its toll) and it's forecast gloomy for the rest of the week so this is the best I can do. This piece is stitched on 36ct creme linen with all recommended threads but with one change from Apple Butter to Raspberry Parfait. As my Quaker pieces are usually stitched monochromatic it made a change for me to stitch with multi-colours and I like it! I hope Suzanne does too.

Sew Autumn is almost ready for release. After waiting for Silk-n Colors Autumn Bouquet silk thread to arrive and starting to stitch with it I decided it didn't look 'Autumny' enough so I am now re-stitching with HDF Raisin Wine. This is the same thread I am using for Beatrix Potter. Check back in a few days if you (eh Angela?) are stalking my blog ;-)

I still need to start those Christmas ornaments for the children - I can see a last minute panic here.

Thanks for visiting
Take care

    I simply love the colours you are using for Emblem of Love ! When I can stitch again... you can be sure I'll will copycat you !
    Look at the bright side of things : 3 more weeks to go and wham ! French invasion !

    I love the single color look too but this Emblems is beauitful.
    Can't wait to see your next piece, I think I may need to visit my LNS for some floss again.

    So sorry that the sun has been hiding. I don't think I would deal well with that either.

    Sending you lots of hugs!!!

    Stalking your blog - what me!! Haha! I hope this one is dedicated to me Carol :>)
    I can't wait to see it.

    Your addition to Suzanne's Emblem of Love is really lovely. The colours are very subtle and the whole piece looks totally different.
    Hugs Angela

    I looks great and I can't wait for it to come back all finished. Thank you for your beautiful stitching.

    Sorry you haven't had much sunshine. I would be happy to swap all our dry sunny weather, with gloom and rain.

    Carol,I'm going to be away on holiday when Sew Autumn is released and won't be back until November, so please could I ask you to send it to me, so I don't miss out. Autumn colours are my absolute favourite. My email is in my profile. Thanks in advance. Deleted my last comment as I made a typo :o))

    I have always loved Emblem of Love but haven't managed yet to stitch it. This RR looks gorgeous.
    I'm looking forward to seeing Sew Autumn released. Just the word "autumn" in it makes me want to have it, lol.

    Your "Emblem.." for Suzanne is great, Carol! I love this RR. Did you get my email about Sew Blue? I would love to have that chart and any others you've created or will create. I'm such a fan, dear friend. Hugs, Deb

    Your blog is lovely, your designs are very nice, and I love the fact that some of Vikki Clayton's Hand-Dyed Fibers are used for your little samplers. Thank you for sharing your designs! I would like the patterns for Sew Red, Sew Blue, and Sew Autumn. We are happy that you love Quakers! Carolyn
