My latest flock is growing in size. I have some decisions to make now because I don't like the top of this pattern and I may just abbreviate it to speed things up.
I am still slogging away on all that back stitch that needs to be done on the top half of the nautical sampler. This week I've worked on a bit more rope and the alphabet. I keep asking myself why I didn't do all the outlining when I first starting stitching this 30 years ago but I can't come up with an answer that makes any sense.
While I was downstairs working on all that back stitching I noticed these little apple dollies on a shelf. I made these at least 30 years ago-maybe 40. They were in one of those cross stitching magazines that I used to subscribe to and I haven't thought of them in years. Aren't they sweet? I wish I still had the pattern.
