The art teacher at school approached me the other day about Fine Arts week. The week of March 14 (next week!) our school will be celebrating Fine Arts through a myriad of activities and special events. She said that she was having a "Hidden Talent" event and would like for me to showcase my needlework. Well.....I must say that I was thrilled about the possibility of showing off my needlework not to mention the possibility of getting some of the kids interested.
So, I began thinking of all of the finished projects that I had and realized that I don't have as many finished projects as unfinished projects! Well, not much can be done about that in only one week but I thought that maybe, just maybe, I could accomplish some serious stitching on Richmond Sampler. Here are the fruits of my labor...
Here is a before pic...
And here is my progress as of tonight...
Stitching these flowers makes me think of spring!
Gotta love those over one berries!
I certainly do not think I will be finished with Richmond Sampler by March 17 but I am trying to at least have the border finished. Keep your fingers crossed for me!
Here is my stitching helper, Simon. He always has to be involved with my stitching!
