Examplar IV progress

This motif is one of the simplest on the entire sampler, but it is so elegant! I can see using it when I need a little something on other pieces. The flower petals are just long laid stitches, the leaves are made up of tied stitches (like very shallow fly stitches), and the center is yet another spiral trellis.

Over the past two days, I've also been working on the strawberry motif in the upper right corner. This motif should be finished tomorrow.

The sampler is getting there! Thank you to Catherine Theron for a design that's doing a great job in distracting me as the days seem to be getting longer here in the hospital!
Pregnancy ticker: 33 weeks, 5 days.
The doctors tried to confuse me this morning when they made some mention of inducing me on Friday. I pointed out that I'm sure they meant next week. It was pretty funny to see three doctors all spinning around to look at the calendar (with my ticker written on each day) and do a double-take. Oh, yes. Next week! :-)

Well, it is nice to be able to bamboozle them for a change. I'm sure all their medical jargon had you going "WHAT" and you caught them on something as simple as a date!

Good luck keeping the doctors in line. Dealing with flat silk is easy in comparison!

It is always fun to correct the doctors. Keeps them on their toes.

Hi Jeanne,

I've enjoyed catching up on your recent posts tonight. :-)

Exemplar IV is working up quickly and is just beautiful!

thinking of doing this sampler myself one day (and never thought I would do one, don't like them in general) but this one is so gorgeous!
