Gather, Gobble, Give

Charlene posted posted a progress pic of her Gobble, and has already stitched Give.  I really love the colors she's chosen.  Anyway, she posted a link to my blog about my finished series, and it was driving me crazy trying to figure out where I has posted them.  Duh!  It was a blog header pic last autumn, so they never made it into the actual blog and received a label.  This post is more for my own peace of mind!

Plum Street Samplers Gather, Gobble, and Give
Stitched on 36 count HDF linen with HDF silks

The photo was definitely altered with some color effects and textures.  The 3 pieces are still unframed and un-finish finshed, hopefully waiting on mom to do some quilting magic and turn them into a wall hanging.  Maybe I'll gently prod her by picking out some fabrics and setting them on the sewing machine.

Hmm, maybe I should go pull Ghoul out of my supply of charts I brought with me....

Speaking of photo editing, I finally got brave enough to use Photoshop Elements (which I've had for a year now) and made my own custom blog header using different layers, textures and clipart.  On a different test blog (for my current eCommerce class), I came up with a custom blog background and a header.  Sorry, that blog is private since its a real business and I don't want people getting the test blog confused with the real business blog.  Its a lot of fun!

Your blog header is gorgeous! Wow! I remember your Gobble, Give, and Gather series being in your header. They are so pretty! I think you need to give your mom a gentle prod and get these finished. And good idea on Ghoul too!

Gorgeous. Just gorgeous. Love those designs.
They will look fantastic as a wall hanging. You might arm yourself with some chocolate and a winning smile and have a chat with mum.

Love your PSS pieces.

Wow you did a great job on your new header. I don't think I'm clever enough to do something like that.
