Odds and Ends

I just love how my "Love Letters" sampler by EEF is coming along. I promised pics so here they are:
And, here's a close-up. I'm using two strands, and decided that on the fruit, I would do a more textured stitch. Not sure if I love it, but it's there, and I'm leaving it! I am also changing the phrase on the left side of the heart to "love one another", instead of "be true". I'll leave "be kind" on the other side.
I'm also working a little bit on the original Snapperville. I've almost finished the Easter one, but have set that aside, since I missed Easter and it's not urgent I finish that anytime real soon. I haven't gone too far on the original. I'm using one strand on 36 ct over two.
I have also sewn the main pieces of my quilted bag together. Here is what it looks like so far, with the top polka dot peeking... it's the lining:

Well, gotta go take Chloe for a walk. Have a great week!

Your "Love Letters," is so pretty. Reminds me of Summers with my grandmother in her victorian house in NC. She had an upstairs Summer room with painted wicker rockers and sofa...decorated in faded (what we'd call shabby chic) chintz florals...Your sampler would be perfect there.

Lovely sampler. Love Letters has long been a fav of mine. You may have to share that conversion with me as I really like the soft colors I'm seeing. (
Will you be attending the SB retreat next year and have you attended in the past???

I just found your blog today Laura. Lovely work you're doing - who doesn't love EEF patterns??
I am jealous of the Swan guild - but then if I belonged to that I'd probably be broke all the time ha ha - they do such marvelous things.
