Living Simply With Joy!!

Although time is still fleeting these days, and it has seemed like forever since I last posted, it has been a good life, with much joy, family and love! I do have a finish to share, I put in the last stitches last evening, on this sweet piece.



Primitive Needle's Simply Live
40 ct R&R Cafe Kona Linen
Converted Fibers to Crescent Colours and Weeks


I have been trying to post all afternoon, I have several different pics, non- stitching related to share with you, dear friends. But since blogger isn't allowing, I will wait until tomorrow to try again!I also will be getting back to stitching on Eve by La-D-Da this evening, so hoping to show you an updated pic of her!

Thanks so much for reading, visiting and posting such encouraging and uplifting comments! You are all the best! Have a great few days, until next time!

I have been asked for my conversion to this great project, so here goes:

Old Rose ~ Apple Fritter Crescent Colours
Aged Black ~ Blacksmith Blue Crescent Colours
Antique Violet ~ Bamboo or Toasted Marshmallow Crescent Colours
Olive Green ~ Kudzu Weeks
Withered Blue ~ Tartan Plaid Crescent Colours
Tarnished Gold ~ Ye Olde Gold Crescent Colours
Rusted Orange ~ Colonial Copper Crescent Colours
Brown ~ Hickory Sticks Crescent Colours

I did make another change, as I was stitching, I decided to use Hickory Sticks, instead of Colonial Copper for the two borders at the top and bottom of the alphabet. Felt it was just too much of the orange.

Really beautiful, Jan! The colors are so gorgeous - is yours as charted or did you convert them. I'm so glad you've had a happy couple of weeks!!!

Hi Jan! What a darling piece you've finished! I've never seen it before, and I love the saying. I'll have to add that to my stash sometime!

I know what you mean about no time to post. I'm really glad your spending time with family and friends. That is the way it suppose to be.

Until later, dear friend!

I simply love this pattern, and I have it (*GASP*) in my stash. I want to stitch it (*GASP*) really soon and I love (*GASP*) your conversion. I was thinking myself of converting to CC's too...or maybe Belle Soie...I've gotten a bit of those of late....Hmmm...
Have a great week!!
