A Rose Is A Rose

I started off the day finishing my Lizzie Kate Exchange. I made it into a little pillow and spoofed it up a little. I hope my partner likes it. I didn't make it to the post office but I am planning on going tomorrow.

We are going to Augusta, I am not sure what Bob wants over there, but I am going to Borders and look for the newest issue of Sampler & Antique Needlework's. I have looked all over Columbia and can't find it.

I stitched on Real Roses by The Drawn Thread, I have started it over because I didn't like the fabric that was in the kit. It was way too dark and hard to stitch on. I am using 32 ct, Antique White Linen by Permin and the NPS that was in the kit.

I actually have the second band almost completed. I stitched more on it after I took the picture, but I wanted to take it while the sun was still shining. I haven't decided my strategy yet, but I am thinking that if I can stitch one band a day it will be finished in 12 days. (maybe less)

I have to go clean the kitchen and start the dishwasher. Maybe I can finish the second band tonight.

I have been wanting to start Real Roses also. I was planning on using antique ivory linen. Does is bother you at all that the chart says "there's real roses?" Shouldn't it be " there are?" I can't quite get comfortable with that. It is lovely never the less!

"Real Roses by Draw Thread looks beautiful
I don't think I have any of their patterns - You have peaked my interest - I think I will start look a little more closely at what they have to offer

Have a great day !!
