On Loan

A friend loaned me the out of print Prairie Schooler chart that I wanted, Spring Samplers #60.  How nice of her!  So I couldn't resist starting it.  There is a certain charm about Prairie Schooler charts.  I liked the 17th century touches on this one.  The sun peeking out of the clouds.

 The snail in the border.

I finished it up yesterday.
I stitched it mostly as charted.  I changed two colors but that's it.  I made the fruit on the vine red like strawberries instead of gold.

 It is stitched over two threads on 40 count Sand  colored linen.  I think I will frame it.
It was pretty warm when I went walking this morning.  It looks like it could rain right now.

Have a nice Sunday!


  1. It looks lovely. I am currently working on one from that leaflet. Hope you have a great day!

  2. To say you are productive is putting it mildly. I would enjoy stitching the top bordered square so I'll check my PS stash.

  3. So pretty.
    I like the touch of red.
