Adam and Eve
Examplars From The Heart
32 count Vintage Country Mocha
I finished Examplars From The Heart's Adam and Eve this weekend. This was a fun and quick stitch. The pattern called for 40 ct something-or-other, which I didn't have. I had this left over piece of the VCM from the Mermaid Sampler, so decided to use that.
At first I was put off by some of the colors used (yes, I know, I can use creative license and change them), but the more I stitched it, I began to love the kind of wonkiness to it. The colors are actually really vivid. I did make one change - A&E were to be stitched in Porcelain, but I didn't have that thread, so I subbed Wild Oats. Seems appropriate for those two - sowing their wild oats in the garden, don't you think? The picture is a little washed out though. I don't know what's going on with my camera today. Picture taking usually works out so much better outside, but today isn't the day to go outside for picture taking. Because it looks like this:
Yep, another six inches of snow fell last night! It is April 6th, isn't it? Usually by this time, I'm starting to see my hydrangeas pushing up little bits of green, but nothing yet. I did notice the trees have some little buds though, so that's encouraging. I'm sure this won't be around long because it's going to be 50 again in a couple of days. I do love snow, but not this late in the season! Some schools got the day off - not ours (mom secretly chuckles here). My kids were so bummed!
Hope everyone has a great week!
