While enjoying some of that sunshine streaming through the glass door of my stateroom, I stitched more on "Herb Garden Bouquet". I changed the dark blue flower there under the "K" from a lighter shade of blue as I felt there wasn't enough contrast to the blue in the flower neighboring it. The design is coming along, even though I didn't stitch as much on board the ship as I might have. You see, I also took a few naps, real afternoon naps. What a great vacation!
On my last Costco visit, this colorful bouquet called out my name, "Von, look at us! We're cheery, we're bright, we're colorful - take us home!" Could not resist the color combination, and why would I? :-D
I'll soon be setting aside the HGB project to begin stitching a model of A Legacy of Love for Connie of Lacey Thread Designs. The fabric has been stitched to the scroll bars and I've been putting in some guide lines before I actually begin the design. When Connie sent me the kit for ALOL, she included her other designs for me with a signed copy of Quaker Inspirations which she dedicated to me! What a dear thing to do. Thank you, Connie! Your friendship has been an inspiration to me for over thirty years.
