An Update Finally

Here it is over a month since my last update, I was hoping to have more done on my current stitching project but just seem to be having a go slow:0) For one I have been reading a lot, I am reading the Cape Light series by Thomas Kinkade.  Back to my stitching.   I'm working on a Victoria Sampler chart and really enjoying it.  It is a design by Cathy Jean called "Sunflower House".  It has some specialty stitches but nothing too hard, except for I'm not sure about the center of the Sunflowers around the house, they are blanket stitch done in a sort of circle and I have never tired that before.  The floss used is a combination of Gentle Art Sampler Threads, Weeks Dye Works, Dinky Dyes Silks, And Vikki Clayton Silks.  The silks are a lot of fun but you most certainly have to make sure your hands are smooth because the silk will catch on the lest little thing.  Good reason not to wash dishes by hand!
