It's Monday, it's Kingdom Sampler SAL night.... I got most of the clouds done tonight. There are two small ones left to do on the right side, but I need to swap out to new contact lenses tomorrow, these are cloudy (right at the scheduled two week point for disposables... funny how that always works that way!). So, I didn't work on anymore white and gray. Instead I worked on the alphabet for a little while until quitting time. I also did some more of the brown border. I really cannot see much of the shading in the clouds, which are DMC 762 and white... too subtle to really make out, that is for sure. We are very close to done now.
My entry title is also fitting for the beautiful belfast linen I received today from Sugar Maple Fabrics' Treat of the Month (aka Fabric of the Month) - In The Clouds :-) This is super pretty and I cannot wait to start thinking of what chart is going to look just perfect on it! Thanks Mindy!
And... a small order from Stitching Bits & Bobs today! I think I may have finally found the right memorial sampler to stitch on behalf of my father. This is a new release by Midsummer Night Designs. I just want to figure out how to add "Husband of...." along with "Father of....", and then give it to my mom. It is actually charted for 40 ct linen. I love how designers are getting more into the 40 ct linen lately! And, I also got Hillside Samplings' Quaker Diamond... I have been coveting this forever. I will have to make sure to pick up the R&R linen next time I am at my LNS!
