Margaret's Stitchery


I still have a few finishing touches to add to Margaret's piece, but thought I would show a wee peek of what I added to her sampler. Being that she lives in "Switzy", having a skier seemed natural and because I can't be serious about hardly anything, having a skier in a bathing suit was even better! No, this image is not done with TAP (transfer paper) and I didn't feed fabric directly into my computer printer. Nope, this is a scrap from an old Eddie Bauer T-shirt I wore for years. I loved the image on the front so much that I cut it out and saved it before making rags from the rest of the white cotton T. The truly amazing part is that I was able to find this scrap again! I have a photographic memory of where I have squirreled things away-- until they are moved. That's why I am undone when my husband insists that we do some deep cleaning. NOoooooooooo! It ruins my filing system!
We are nearing the home stretch of our QB5 stitchery round robin (members are in my side bar). I have Linda's stitchery already waiting for me to stitch on, but first I have to finish up Margaret's!
