A SAMPLER IN PROGRESS AND HALLOWEEN FUN
This is my Stacy Nash sampler that I had started last week. I was stitching on 16ct linen and absolutely did not like it..It was a loose weave and my stitches kept sliding under the weave..it drove me nuts..so I decided to trash it and use this linen (28CT) that is just wonderful to stitch with. There are only three colors in the sampler...DMC 869, 3781, and I changed the terra cotta 3830 (because of course I didn't have that one) to 3777. I am hoping to have it finished by the end of the week.
Well...this is the clan...all 9 of them. Some are daring for a fast getaway...it is sooo hard getting these little ones to sit still for even a minute...plus,my camera is a pain...I cannot seem to focus to save my life...I'm going back to my old Kodak!
These four were very photo friendly...to the left is Olivia, then Karsyn, Jacob, and Brady (who is sitting)
And then we have Olivia...she LOVES the camera...she will pose and smile..doesn't matter what's going on! I took 38 pictures, and these were the only ones that came out...so dissappointed! My husband took a whole roll of film on his 35mm...but they came out in black and white...just wasn't our day for taking pictures!
