For once...

... I am ahead of time and have finished part 3 of the SMC 2015 before part 4 arrives!! I still can't believe it! I am ususally so slow on all my projects!



But look at the sampler!!! How can you stop stitching it? It is really beautiful and stitching it over 1 with tent stitch on 40-count linen enhances its beauty in MHO.



The whole project is already looking gorgeous and I cannot wait for part 4.



I have not decided how I will frame it yet but have several ideas. I will decide when I choose in which room it will go. The framing will depend on the sampler itself, of course, but also on the surrounding frames on the wall.

As a reward, I will bake some scones for tea this afternoon, using the recipe Natalie gave on her blog.

Edit 6.30 pm : Well, I thought you would like to have a glimpse of my tea time ;-) My daughters and their friends, who had stopped by, enjoyed some tea and scones with us :-)



Until later,

  6. J'apprécie beaucoup la finesse de ce ravissant sampler qui rejoindra bientôt les précédentes merveilles que tu as déjà brodées, et je n'ai pas pu m'empêcher de saliver devant les photos de l'afternoon tea, présenté avec autant de raffinement que l'ensemble de tes oeuvres.
    Je te souhaite une sympathique rentrée.
