my first goal for this month was to catch up with Story Time Sampler and stitch all the stories that had come out. well, I did much more than that because I also stitched ALL the 12 frames in this sampler, removed the Band-Aid and fixed that part as well! 🎉💃🏻🎉💃🏻🎉💃🏻🎉💃🏻
the area underneath looked alright but I still wanted to make sure that substitute linen thread was anchored to the rest of the fabric, so I decided to sacrifice a bit of the margin left on the bottom and add a small banner with “the end” stitched in my handwriting (matching “A long time ago” on top).
it’s based on the top banner but reduced in size; I thought of adding one months ago but at that point I had spent so much time working on the one on top I didn’t feel like starting another straight away.
well, now I had a darn good excuse to do so, and I did. 😀
May’s story is Charlotte’s Web (you can see it if you follow the link I added to Story Time Sampler at the beginning of this post), and if I can manage I’ll stitch her today with no particular changes to the original design. I’ll just pick my colours from stash, as usual, and while doing so I’ll have to use a different white than the one I’ve been using so far – ’cause if you stitch sheep you use White Sheep, right?! 😀

I know you’ve been waiting for another clue for the mystery piece, so here it is. I’m afraid it’s still foggy but I promise the next snap will clear the cobwebs away. (can you tell I can’t wait to stitch that adorable spider?! 😍)

Taras and I wish you a good day and a nice start of the week!
