I have a story for you today. It is one that makes me remember that there are still many kind people in the world.
I joined a group on Facebook called The Prairie Schooler Students. It is a group of stitchers who love the designs of Prairie Schooler. I have loved this designer since the 1980s and I have stitched many of their charts. Recently I became aware of a Village pattern that is very old and I must have missed it back in the day.
Here is a picture of it.
On Ebay it was going for about $30. I asked the ladies on Prairie Schooler Students if anyone had a chart they would be willing to sell. A sweet lady sent me this chart for FREE. I was just overwhelmed and I told her if I had a chart that she needed all she had to do was ask! Her only request was that I update her on my progress on Facebook Messenger. As you can tell the chart looks very 1980s. Back then there were very few DMC colors to work with and most were very subtle.
I am bringing this piece into the 2000s by using some of the new over dyed variegated flosses.
Here is my progress so far.
Here is an update on Smoky Mountain Christmas.
And finally my progress on Coffee Quaker.
Don't forget today is Derby Day! After living in Louavul, Kentucky for four years, I can never forget Derby Day. Sadly I did not make a Derby Pie to celebrate! Have a good weekend friends.
