Lo How a Rose - Week 4: Letters Only

As you can see, it was letters only that were stitched in LHAR ... with no boo boos ... or none that I've found yet. Since it worked so well, I may have to continue with letters for another day and then have a flowers-only stitch day. Whew! Thank goodness there's a plan in place for the next two weeks! ;)

I'll bet I don't even have to report that I'm back in Eden, in the last section of ATS. I've been discussing the filling-in of the grass with my sister, and I think I have myself settled on what I'd like to try. Siobhan also told me what she did, and I've seen a couple of other finished pieces online. If you have some experience with that last section you wanna share, please feel free.

It's one of those cold, cloudy, breezy Saturdays. Since it's Valentine's Day, I'm baking the man I hang around with an apple-blackberry pie. We're gonna have some tasty chile, cornbread (of course) and some of that too-yummy-for-words pie with ice cream. It'll be nice to sit in front of the fireplace on a cold night and maybe watch a movie ... or not.

Thank you to everyone who leaves kind comments. They're fun to read, informative and much appreciated.

Happy Valentine's Day

I love how your Lo is turning out! I have the chart and am dithering between the WDW and the DMC colourway. Both versions look equally good!

Siobhan said...

Your Lo looks great! It's fun stitching letters, isn't it? Kind of rhythmic and soothing. Can't wait to see what you've decided for grassing up Eden. :)

Love your Lo piece. It's so pretty. Looking forward to seeing what you do in Eden too :-).

Your LO is turning out great, wonderful colours on a wonderful matching fabric.
Apple-blackberry pie sounds breathtaking and makes my mouth water although I was down with a tummy bug those past days and am not supposed to eat things like pies, sigh.

I love your LHAR! I really think I'm going to have to pull the book out and stitch this! Your colors and stitching are beautiful!

Doris, I wanted to email you back but your blogger comment was no-reply. When you get a chance email me at katrinad64 @ gmail dot com :-).

You're making really great progress on Lo, it's so pretty and delicate! I think my stitching mojo is trying to make an appearance so we'll see how it goes this week, lol ;)

Sounds like you had a wonderful Valentine's planned ;)
