God blessed America and I am so very proud of our national bird, the Bald Eagle. Brenda Gervais of With thy Needle & Thread designed this "Soar" sampler. It was inspired by a family of eagles, living in Iowa, that captured the hearts of America. I fell in love with this family at first look and when Brenda offered this piece on her blog www.withthyneedleandthread.blogspot.com it was a must have for me. This pattern is only available from Brenda's blog. A portion of the purchase price is donated to the Raptor Resource Project, the organization responsible for the live feed of this amazing Bald Eagle family.
I stitched this design on 32 ct. Lakeside Linen, Vintage Sienna Night-double dyed. I did my own color conversion from the suggested DMC to assorted Crescent Colors Belle Soie and Thread Gatherers Silk 'n Colors from my stash. I am delighted with the results.
I must include some pics of the cats too. I was searching for some fabric for the Soar sampler and one of the drawers in my fabric dresser was STUCK. So I pulled another drawer out, searched around for fabric and took some outside to check the color. OK...back in the house and Belle had found a new napping place. It was quite an effort to get her out of there!!
I usually put my stitching projects in various serving trays so I can easily move from outside table, to inside table, to stitching chair. Obviously when my project was on the table, Cassanova decided to hold down the 'fort' so to speak. Now that is one full tray of 'Red Cat'.
Thanks for stopping by. I so enjoy your comments and friendship. Happy Stitching
