Happy Thanksgiving to my US friends :-) I couldn't think of a better project to work on today than Women of the Mayflower. And, now I am coming down the homestretch with it. I realized I had a skein of Olde Willow Floss in Gratitude Olde Rose in An Emblem of Love's kit. It is a mucher darker skein than the one I had been using for Women of the Mayflower. I used it to stitch "Women of the Mayflower" and it looks great - I did not need to go with a different color after all. Granted, this sampler is truly impossible to photograph well. The colors are so delicate and do not show well in photos, but they are stunning in person. I will definitely try to get a natural daylight photo of this sampler when I finish it (weather permitting - it is late autumn and relatively gloomy most often now) - hopefully a photo in daylight will show it more realistically.
I also worked on the current gift today - for quite a while, I just hate putting that one down!
Mike and I had a quiet Thanksgiving at home this year - I got to stitch and watch football. How rare! It was his mother's year to host, but for some reason Mike declined that invitation and wanted a year without having to travel. Fine with me :-) He made his first turkey, and it came out just perfect!
