Would You Like to Take a Peek?
Here's a peek at what I'm working on right now. As you can see, it's almost finished. The design is from Mary Garry and it is called "When I was Young and in my Prime." The verse reads:
"When I was yound and in my prime,
Here you may see that I spent my time,
With needle and fine embroidery."
I snatched this up on eBay a couple of weeks ago and felt compelled to stitch it right away. I'll share fabric and fiber selections when I post the finish.
What do you know about Mary Garry? I just recently discovered her designs, which of course are all out of print because she isn't designing anymore! Most everything in my collection has been purchased on eBay. Her designs are quite popular, I know that oher stitching bloggers love them too. Does anyone know what happened to Mary Garry? It's too bad that she doesn't re-publish her designs like Anne Brown from The Goode Huswife has done -- I think they would be a big hit!
Enjoy your day!
