Another happy Dance!

This is a wee one that I thoroughly enjoyed stitching. It’s a Carriage House Samplings design – Mr & Mrs Abbott & Daughters.

I made a few changes  – a blue/grey fabric and a couple of changes to the thread shades for the sky to match the background fabric.

Mrs Abbott & Daughters – CHS

Close Up 1

Close up 2

Design: Mr & Mrs Abbott & Daughters
Fabric; 32 count Belfast (Smokey Pearl, I think)
Threads: DMC – changed as follows: 927 – 800; 928 – 775; 3820 – 832

A bit of trivia with this design: our current Leader of the Opposition Tony Abbott has three daughters!

Watch out for the other half of this design, showing Mr Abbott and another daughter 🙂

Happy Stitching 😉

    Really like this design, and from what I can see on my screen it looks like the color changes worked very well.
