The Embroideress by Examplerary

I have been busy charting my next design, so meanwhile I have time to stitch for pleasure. I have been working on Joanne Harvey's The Embroideress. This is an old chart from the 80's that I have always loved. I bought the kit a few years ago and finally decided to start it as my one and only "stitch May-nia" start for 2017.

In other news, my youngest graduated high school! Wow! I cant believe my kids are now all out of school! We have had kids in school since 1992-so it has been a long haul. They all went to parochial schools, so we won't miss that tuition either! LOL!

Here she is with the son of one of my best friends. They have been in school together since 2nd grade!

It was bittersweet having her graduate without my dear brother there. If he hadn't passed away in 2015, he would have been leading the ceremony as he was the superintendent of her high school.
Here she is with our close family friend we jokingly call our family priest!
His presence always makes these bittersweet occasions better for us!

Here she is with her best friend. 
So proud of them both!

Count Your Blessings Charting Error

Hello folks!

 I have just discovered a charting error on NW-25 Count Your Blessings

Dang it!

Anyways, if you happen to get one of the charts with these symbols:

! should be: 0     Cidermill Brown
"  should be:  #        Old Blue Paint

*All of the white double diamonds should be the color " Old Blue Paint" by GAST. All of the black double diamonds should be "Cidermill Brown" by GAST. 

**on some formats the double diamond symbols do not appear correctly. If you don't see the black and white double diamond symbols on the correction, please refer to the written explanation above. 

And the chart says that Cinnabar is a Gentle Arts color (GAST), when it is actually a Weeks color (WDW).

I sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you!

Thank you so much!
