Update on Charlotte

Not much news here. Busy with all kind of things, packing, watching tennis...and Charlotte is still the one and only.


 Charlotte Clayton
Northwest Sampler Guild
36ct Lakeside Linen Vintage Sand Dune
recommended NPI silks
 
Please excuse the folds, but I was lazy and just let it hang down . The fabric isn't that blotchy looking. It's a shadow. In all honesty, the shadow spot comes closer to the real color.

I have a thing with birds. Isn't he just gorgeous?

Carol said...

Wonderful progress, Gabi--I think a lot of us have a thing for birds judging by how many are stitched :) I'm supposed to be packing too as I was planning a trip to my parents tomorrow, but it looks as though the icy weather has put a crimp in my plans :(

You are speeding through Charlotte! I don't blame you though. She is such a fun stitch! So is tennis easier for you to watch? Melbourne is 16 hours ahead of us, so prime watching time is when I'm asleep. lol! I did cath part of the Djokovic match, and part of Hewitt's match and Serena's. :D
