I promised (or rather Dagi did) an undate on my Ohio sampler ~ MB circa 1810 sampler. I finished the top of the sampler and just love all those alphabets.
Edit - January 8, 2009 - I have deleted all entries pertaining to the MB circe 1810 sampler I was working on after receiving an email from the designer, who I do not know, sharing her opinion about my changing a color in the design. This was done not to offend but because the color was not visible on the linen. I am sorry that I am no longer able to share this with my readers.
And more about color...Am I putting you to sleep with all these coasters? I have just sent two sets on their way to the giveaway winners. Both of these ladies not only comment regularly on my blog but also have blogs of their own. It made it easy to work within their given colors but do coasters that I thought looked like them.
For Linda, who wanted red and green, I choose something that I felt gave a vintage look together. She has such pretty vintage holiday decorations and thought this was really her.
Pondside asked for red and white. I wanted to use this red fabric with Christmas postage stamps on it but white did not work right with it so I used a red holly print instead. This does not come out in the photos but this combination looked so pure Christmas. I choose the light green pinecone print for the backing for a reason. Pondside lives in an incredible place and has a love for the nature and woods around her. To me, she lives daily in the Emersonian surroundings that I get to experience on weekends at Cranberry Cottage.
I hope you both will enjoy your coasters during this holiday season!
We are off to Cranberry Cottage soon and I have decided to only take my Santa banner along so I can get him moving along. I wish you all a cozy and warm weekend!
Margaret, Barbara, Harmien and Annemarie ~ Enjoy your Sip 'N Stitch tomorrow! I will be thinking of you in between yelling 'Timber!' LOL!
