Sunday Mystery Sampler Update: The Perfect Green!

Guys, guys, GUYS! Both of my thread orders arrived on Monday! Hooray! Apart from ripping open the packages to see if The Perfect Green was in there somewhere, I practiced super-human self-discipline and went about my work for the day and by the time I got everything done, it was too late to start stitching. But Tuesday I was able to finish the second and third days. 

Delicious thread stash (world's cutest nose in the background).

Behold, The Perfect Green:

My color choices (apart from the border, all threads are Caron Wildflowers):
border: DMC 938
crown & urn: Spice
snowflakes: Dawn
turtle doves: Dark Suede
flower blossoms: Cinnabar
flower stems: Moss
words: Blackwatch (aka, The Perfect Green)

My color choices (apart from the border, all threads are Caron Wildflowers):
border: DMC 938
tree needles: Moss
tree branches: Sable
pot: Redwood
hens: Copper
snowflakes: Dawn
crown: Spice
words: Cinnabar

If you're not interested in this sampler, I have to warn you, it has taken over my life and until I get caught up (hopefully this week) I won't be posting about anything else! I've got Christmas ornaments to stitch, Woodland Sampler blocks to work on, and oh yeah, I was supposed to be finishing my wedding sampler. *sigh* I knew this would happen if I started this, but I couldn't help myself. If-I-can-just-get-caught-up!

I'm halfway done with the fourth day, the fifth day should be pretty fast, and I'm itching to get to that wonderful plump goose on the sixth day!

Off to stitch as fast as I can... which is... not fast.

Happy Stitching!


  1. Am love, love, loving your color choices! Thanks so much for sharing those with us! I look forward to seeing the whole series done!

  2. You're right, it is the perfect green!! What a beautiful job you did on color selection. I just finished the Fifth Day and have not been too adventurous with color changes. Now I get to stitch the plump goose! :)

  3. Beautiful! So glad for you. :D

  4. On another subject, just wanted to let you know about the latest cover of The Stitchery catalog has the neatest fox that I wanted to make sure you saw. Also Alicia Paulson's fox is going to be featured in the Martha Stewart Magazine.

    1. Thank you so much for thinking of me! I do have that fox on the cover of The Stitchery catalog--he's on my to-do list for next year! Isn't he beautiful?
      Alicia is going to be swamped with orders when that issue comes out! Good for her!

  5. Glad your thread order arrived and it contained the perfect green! Your blocks look great, Honeybee.

  6. Oh, your sampler is so pretty! Love the colors that you have chosen.

  7. Yay for the perfect green. Not sure I would've showed the same self-control in holding out for the day lol

  8. Love that sampler. Those days are so pretty and the green is perfect. So jealous of that bunch of gorgeous floss.

  9. Love all the colors you are using and so glad for you that you found your perfect green! Your overall color choices looks really pretty all together.
