After all the smalls finishing I thought I'd work on a larger piece for a bit.....so out came Harriett Salt. I work right to left and am about halfway across that top section. I'm using AVAS 100/3 for the first time, #2646. I bought a number of spools when I thought I would do this over 1, but now that I decided to do it over 2, I need more. They evidently changed the number to #335, so I'm hoping it will be a match.
I came across a couple trade cards at an antique store Sunday..aren't they sweet?
And, I was doing a little purging/organizing yesterday and came across something I thought you'd get a chuckle out of. This belonged to my great aunt, Tante. She was an old spinster and somehow I absconded with this when she passed. Here is what the note says: "This was my chemise...I wore this at 16 yrs age with long dresses. We all did as 'teenagers'. Ha! Ha! Now they wear nothing." (Maybe I need to take better care of this)
Thanks for stopping by and your "twisted threads" of friendship.
