A Lady's Dream

Here is my start on "A Lady's Dream" by Carriage House Samplings. I love the samplers in the 2006 Most Noble Pursuit, but I know I would never stitch it as one piece. I thought about stitching three of them separately, and hanging them near each other. We will have to see. I always make such great plans - planning is almost as much fun as stitching! I put my rotation on hold again to do this piece. I do believe in the "power" of the rotation, but I have to take side trips to keep me going down the main road - if that makes any sense! I just love the verse on this design, "The murmur of the summer stream is best to soothe a lady's dream." Sometimes, when I think about it, it does not quite make sense, but the words are lovely anyway. It has been a loooong time since I have stitched such relatively large blocks of a single color, but I am finding it relaxing after stitching so many words and alphabets on other designs. I hope everyone gets lots of stitching and reading done today!

I love Carriage House Samplings! I saw this one with all the other ones together but I like it here alone too. Your stitching is so neat! The colors are pretty too.

I know what you mean.... This one is beautiful and stands out in that collaborative sampler grouping. I always find my RRs keep me on track with stitching, Michele. I guess I really need a fire under my "bookie" to keep me racing to stitch on my WIPs!! The rotation system works for me, as well. Between stitching and reading, who needs to do housework?
