You see I deserved to go pattern hunting because....... BEATRIX IS DONE!!!!! DONE. DONE. DONE. Hee heee.
For the record she's done in 4 shades of DMC and a Vikki Clayon overdyed silk with 3 colors of beads (from a powwow so I can't tell you what they might be in official color terms) on cream linen. I decided to put my ladies' initials in in the varied tones already used in the sampler. So here's mom--
All the other initials are all the 2nd 3rd, and 4th great grandmothers I know, as well as a single representative of 5th through 9th generations.
As for birthdays.... I can prove I had fun --
I went to PaleyFest-- TWICE --
How about now?
Besides public events happiness comes with family festivals--
Aside from celebrating with chocolate-enhanced squirrels, I will be partying with a new stitching start. Tonight begins Mouse's Spring Sampler --
Here's to you having as grand a day as I have had.
