Is it really June already?

I worked on Acorn Sampler again tonight, but I am not completely happy with it. I do not care for how the two strands of brown silk cover on the cashel linen for the acorns. Next time up, I am pulling them out and restitching with three strands...

I think your Acorn Sampler looks lovely. But of course you know what it looks like IRL and you need to be happy with it.

Looks like you met almost all of your goals! Way to go!

I think I had that problem on acorns before, a Sweetheart Tree needleroll, I believe. Three strands might look better, though it looks good as is. Good luck!

Carol R said...

Sometimes you just need that extra strand! It's looking beautiful

Hazel said...

my goodness you have been busy this month! Loving the acorn sampler. xx

Kathy A. said...

Love your acorn sampler. I think it looks lovely and delicate as it is. You sure did a good job on meeting your goals for May. Good luck with your June list.

Beatrice said...

You have been one busy girl...good for you to be able to keep up. Good luck with the June goals.
I had a look at the 500 clip. Thanks for posting that . I had company and couldn't watch the game.
Acorn Sampler is lovely!

Lovely stitching, Carol!!

Carla said...

What a beautiful sampler, Carol!! And the fabric you are using for it is very pretty!
You did great on your goals for May..congrats :)

Your Acorn Sampler looks very delicate. Three strands might give better coverage and some volume to the acorns but before frogging maybe first experiment with three strands on a scrap and see which you like better.

Beautiful progress on your acorn sampler! For some reason I really like stitching acorns, but I hate them in real life. Maybe it's just the colours I like.

My, you've been productive this month. I'm glad you achieved so much you set out to do.

Lynn said...

Great exchange.. I like the looks of that chart from your wish list.
A Quaker Christmas is so beautiful! It's because of this piece that I'm starting to get interested in all those lovely Quaker samplers out there. Thanks Carol!
