This little goodie is from Victoria Sampler. It's "Jazz". I'm not a big fan of backstitching, so I just added buttons to the thread and beads and called it quits. It's very small and very colorful.
From The Sampler Girl. It's one of my salutes to the Royal Wedding (I'm such an Anglophile. I wish I were going to be there!). I did it on Joblan with DMC colors. I omitted the heart button and stitched the little heart in. Not sure what I'm going to do with it! Now I'm working on the Kelmscott chart.
Not only is the wedding this weekend, but so is my class reunion. We all celebrate our 65th birthdays this year, so we're going to have a two day celebration. It's in my hometown of Tuscaloosa, Alabama. What it means is that I will get up around 3AM (my time), watch the wedding, leave for home around 8AM or so, travel the 6 hours (I imagine I'll be sleeping all the way) and then join all the festivities at 6PM Friday night. Can't wait. I keep reminding myself to be sure to speak Alabamian, not Louisianian!
