Monkey Business

"Savannah Birth Sampler" Progress 9/8/13

I was hoping to have the monkey all done by now.  I had to give up last night due to back spasms.  Frustrating!  But I only have 4 or 5 rows left to finish the mouth area, 2 eyes, and a nose.  I backstitch all at the end so none of that right now.  I will then move on to finishing the leaves, sun and box and the top right corner will be done.  It is shaping up to be a pretty busy week so I really am hoping to get at least that done.

I am also starting a Halloween ornie for an exchange and it has been making my brain hurt.  I think i will run by Hobby Lobby and take a look at their packages of linen.  My brain won't hurt and I can actually get a stitch in it.  hopefully I can unbury my sewing machine soon.

That's about all for this update....

Healthy Stitching!

  3. I love this birth sampler! Great choice of fabric to stitch it on, love that purple!

  4. Thank you. It is a wonderfully soft linen that feels like it is going to melt in your hands.
