It's Victoria's Quaker night! I am already really loving this one - it is a pleasure to stitch. Gig was needy again tonight and I lost about 45 minutes of stitching time while he needed to be in my lap. I really prefer the colors that are shown on the cover of the chart so much more than the colors Vikki Clayton is now dyeing for this sampler, though. The silks are so much darker than in the photo. I know she had to switch how she dyes her silks due to bleeding problems, so it is understandable. But still, I like the cover colors better.
Thank you, Carissa, for this unbelievably generous birthday package that arrived today - she spoiled me so much - look at all the treats!!
Stitched on today: The Mermaid and the Sea (Barbara, I will post a photo as soon as I make enough progress worth showing - I still am doing this at work, so it is only in tiny bursts), started a gift, and Victoria's Quaker
