Back in cyberland and My Band sampler 77 – Details 647 & 648 June 1st, 2008

Hi everyone, Thank you to all that have sent me get well comments, they are much appreciated and I will try and get personal replies sent as I have the energy to do so….whatever the bug that hit me it hit me hard and now more than 2 weeks later I am still recovering but at least in the last few days my head has started to clear a little.

Details of brass bedheadA few nights back my son suggested that I should put something on my sampler to record how sick I have been, I thought about it and decided as I have spent so much time in bed I would embroider my Bedhead which is a reproduction (1980) Brass Bedhead modified to fit a waterbed base…I have always loved this bedhead that has posts enameled in burgundy and pretty pink china pots and embroidering its likeness on my sampler gives me something nice from an otherwise awful couple of weeks.

I used stem stitch for the posts, Satin stitch and colonial knots for the trimmings and beads for the china pots, my son painted tiny roses on the beads.

Today also marks the change of season as we click over into winter down under.

    How nice to make something pretty from such a bad time. I’m glad to see you feel like stitching again. I’ve been watching your sampler progress – makes me think about making one myself.

    Very lovely work, Annie. I’m so glad that you are feeling better and getting strength back. Thank you for posting to let us know you are on the mend. When I don’t see your posts, it is almost like missing a friend I expect to see.

    What a beautiful bedhead! Almost makes it worth getting sick for – but not for TWO weeks! Glad to hear you’re feeling a little better.
