I've started to trace the sampler yesterday............I thought It would take forever!
As you can see there is quite a lot to trace here. I'm happy to say though, after several hours, I did manage to complete it. I'm going to transfer it on to linen today.
We went to Berkeley on Sunday for lunch, and a bit of fabric shopping for me. I decided on this really pretty embroidered fabric to make a skirt for myself. There was only one and a half yards on the bolt, so it will have to be a simple A - line skirt.
This is my most exciting piece of fabric that I bought, it is Liberty Of London. Boy was it pricey,but I used my Christmas money on it so it didn't feel like too big of a splurge. I got so sick of seeing all the prices of clothing, that I decided to make a few things for myself. I really hope the top turns out, that I will be using the Liberty fabric on!!
I think they look quite nice together. We shall see if the end result is how I picture it in my mind.
I would like to mention a couple of things here on this post. First off, thank you all for the nice comments on the loss of my little sweetheart Lucie bird. She is so missed, we can still swear that we hear her little bell,that she loved to play with so much, ringing sometimes. It sure is quite in the corner where she use to be :(
Second, from this post on, I will start answering questions through the comment area. In the past I have answered through going on the persons blog. I think it becomes too fragmented that way, so if you ask me something, check back on the comments for the answer.
I hope everyone got a chance to watch history being made today. It was quite something to see the transition of power done so elegantly. What an amazing time in history don't you think?!
