I took a short detour from stitching samplers...I received my chart and threads for WTNT's Valentine Sampler last week. So, I searched my stash for the 40 ct. R & R Expresso linen. I had a small piece. Just enough to do the scissor fob, pincushion and small thimble box. When I completed those, I found some 40 ct. WDW linen to stitch the large sewing box and sewing roll.
I searched for the Glidden Paint testers that Brenda talked about at my local Walmart. They didn't have the colors she suggested...So, I picked up some others. You can see in the picture the colors I have painted them.
I'm not too concerned about having two different color linens. I will be "aging" them with Walnut Ink Crystals when I am done.
This week I need to get back to Ann Bowers Sampler!
