OOOOooohhhhh I want it !!!!

But more than that I want the time to stitch it . What am I talking about ?
This http://tinyurl.com/amupys - I'm thinking of this in different colours for the different seasons. Probably either Caron wildflowers or some other subtle variegatd silks .

Lol, in answer to all you lovely peeps, the fact that I've said I'd love to doesn't necessarily mean I will . I have a couple of pieces in my stash that I'm still working my way up to that are pretty simmilar to this - maybe not quite as big. One is a Jan Houtman piece that I've had a couple of years and the rest are Quaker repro's. I have started my Mary Busby's sampler in silk on linen but had to put it aside to do other pieces so there is hope!!!

That looks like an incredible piece of work - Are you retired, yet?! You might be by the time you finish it, unless you can stitch at work!

Jan said...

Lol, as myMother always said 'I want doesn't always get'!!!!
I wish I was retired but no not yet. It is something I'd love to try stitching though - can't see it in my lifetime - too many other projects vying for space.

Ah yes, the time to do the things we love.

That's what I want for Valentines Day!

Thanks for visiting Wendy - went to your blog and tried to leave a comment but couldn't for some reason .
Your Rose of Sharon is coming along beautifully. I was in Orlando , Florida 10 years ago in May as well.
