Miss Marion Has Returned

Hello everyone!

Isn't it just the best day when your stitching returns home from the framers?!!!

My 'Marion Robertson' returned home today ...

Jill Rensel and her staff did a wonderful job, as usual ... and I am very pleased with the results!
In other news, progress on 'Sarah Harvey' has come to a standstill. When I started stitching her I thought she needed a little freshing up so I brightened a few of her colors. I looked at my progress over the weekend and thought ooohhh, no no ... too much!!!
So yesterday and today I've spent the day unstitching and trying other colors ... but nothing was really working. Finally about an hour ago I came to the realization that stitching her as originally charted was what suited her the best. Not sure what I was thinking ... I don't sound too crazy, do I?!!!
I'll be back next week ... or possibly later this week ... with some progress photos.
Lots of fabulous stitching out there ... I love reading all the posts!

'Marion Robertson' looks absolutely beautiful! I am in love with her frame.

Nicola said...

Perfect choice of frame. I wish there was someone like Jill in the UK.

Sorry about the colours on Sarah but if you didn't experiment you would have wondered each stitching session.

Jenny said...

What a wonderful choice for a frame, Lanie! Your Marion just looks beautiful. I love her.

No you are not crazy at all! It is good to experiment and decide what works best for you...after all with all the hours you put into a sampler it should be what makes you happy!
