Sky Blue Pink!

Wow - this was my view outside my window this morning as I had my first cuppa and stitched my first stitches of the day.  Isn't Mother Nature just the most awesome.....using her paintbox of all colors.

 Looking north

Looking west

 Looking south

My grandfather was a sailor before settling on a factory job.   I know the sailor's lament - Red sky at night sailors delight/red sky at morning, sailors take warning.   Not sure what we are in for today but I was surrounded by beautiful skies at sunrise.

As for stitching, I am moving along.   Fourteen sections completed and 19 to go!

 Finished up the roses this morning.   I am one thread off......I am not sure I will frog and restitch the leaves on the right or make it mine and leave it at stitched.

Queen Stitches were frogged and restitched.   I am happy I did redo these.   This time around my Queen Stitches were much nicer than the first time.

This verse says it all.

Happy stitching and happy week everyone.

That's such a beautiful sampler - I wouldn't unpick the stitches. I really can't see any counting errors!

Robin-I completed this one in 2014. The accessories are still waiting. You can do it!

Sunrise pics are gorgeous. We also had a beautiful sunset--lots of pink sky again!
Your stitching looks great--I did this about 10 years ago and loved it. You feel a real sense of accomplishment as you complete each section. Keep on stitchin'!!!
