Brand New Start

Today I started Gloire du Matin by The Drawn Thread. While we were at the Drawn Thread/Indigo Rose event last weekend, Margaret and I decided to start our SAL of this pretty sampler today. I managed to get all of this done just while watching a couple of movies while it poured out this afternoon. I think this will be a quick stitch. The photo is a bit dark due to my habit of taking the photos late at night in my finished basement, and I don't have a light box... but, I think it still shows how pretty this little sampler will be. I really enjoyed what I was able to get done earlier today.

Stitched on today: Started Gloire du Matin, and started an ornament for the SBEBB Christmas Ornament Exchange **Mailed out a new CE exchange today

What a lovely start, Carol! I love the backstitching on this one, as far as I can tell :o) I'm sure you will have loads of fun with this one.

What a lovely new start,I think the picture turned out well. With it being darker going into winter trying to get good, true color pictures is quite a challenge. Your house for An's RR turned out lovely, what a fun piece. It must have felt good to have the last RR finished at this point too. As always the various exchanges given and received were all lovely. You always have such wonderful pieces posted to look at.
