I didn't post last week because I was busy with my sister being here for a vacation.
I took the week off too.
I can finally post what I gave her for her birthday.
La-D-Da A Stitcher's Garden.
I initially thought it said A Sister's Garden...oops!
I still love the way it turned out.
I used Threads from Victorian Motto Sampler.
I had to adjust the alphabet to get a second "M" in there for her initials.
She uses both her maiden and married name.
I’m making headway on the border of Sarah but, it is a project.
I have also signed up for the "Tis the Season" SAL
I decided to use overdyes rather than order the Victorian Motto Sampler Threads.
I like her threads but, sometimes I don't feel like they are gradated enough.
I really like the antique look and want to achieve that.
One of the things we did, while my sister was here was go to Fayette Historical State Park.
It was a harbor town on Lake Michigan where from 1867 to 1892 Iron Ore was turned into Pig Iron to be shipped.
Many of the building have been restored or are in the processed of being of restored.
The surrounding area is absolutely beautiful!

Looking at Lake Michigan.
The weather was perfect that day....no humidity and 75.
It was a great time!
Hope your week was good.
Have a wonderful week!
Keep on Stitching
