A Little Corner of My World

It has been a while since I posted so I thought I would share with you a couple of pics that I took today mainly to show the little charm that I asked Cathy
to make for me.
It is double sided so depending on my mood I can either display Savon or turn it over and have just plain S on the other side. This little glass cloche sits on the vanity top in the downstairs bathroom at our Humpy . I just love this French Soap and what better way to preserve it for a while.

Work in Progress

I have many WIP's but when you attempt a sampler this size, one's interest can wane after a period of time.
I always come back to them though and this one is no exception , I am so close to finishing . I have to say though that it is very taxing on the eyes as a lot of the thread colours are so close to the linen colour . I am only using 1 strand of thread as I am stitching this on 36 count linen. The chart is one from an old Antique Sampler and Needlework magazine. I think I commenced this sampler back in 2005, so yes it is time to complete it.
