About embroiderbee

ABOUT ME: Catholic, Wife, Mom, Artist, Researcher, Baker, Cat- Herder, New Englander. I love designing needlework, especially samplers with specialty stitches, applique & quilting, painting, photographing, reading, writing, baking, fabric and floss collecting. ~*~*~*~* FAVORITE COLORS: bluish-purples and greens. ~*~*~*~* FAVORITE ANIMALS: Cats ~ you don't have to walk them, and they purr. I've also loved my share of dogs. ~*~*~*~* FAVORITE MUSIC: Instrumental ~ flute, piano, Smetana's Moldau ~*~*~*~* FAVORITE MOVIES: Pride & Prejudice with Ehle and Firth. No other versions need apply. Waking Ned Devine, Happy endings only. ~*~*~*~* FAVORITE BOOKS: A Tale of Two Cities, Pride and Prejudice, mysteries, romance, classics, non-fiction. ~*~*~*~* FAVORITE CLOTHES: Worn blue jeans, turtlenecks, T-shirts, and hoodies. ~*~*~*~* FAVORITE TV SHOWS: Book Notes, some History Channel, Fox News, The Science Channel, some The Real Housewives of ... , Doc Martin, some Masterpiece Theater, some TED talks. ~*~*~*~* FAVORITE THINGS 2 DO: Read a good book during a rain or snow storm. Stitch or paint in beautiful light. Talk in bed with my husband late at night and then go for an early breakfast... ie, have his total undivided attention, and luxuriate in it. Talk with our son without cell phones, ipods, etc at a family meal. Go to lunch with a friend and laugh till our sides hurt. Browse in a good library or bookstore. Go to the theater when both the play and the seats are good. Stay home and do absolutely nothing. Read on my Kindle! *~*~*~* ETHNICITY: Mixed-American Mutt of Irish (97%), Welsh, and many other slivers of ethnicity.

      I’m glad that you like the sampler! Thank you so much for commenting. Comments from stitchers and readers mean a lot to me.


  3. Hello! I stumbled onto your blog whilst reading another blog, ;). You have designed some lovely charts, well done. Thanks for sharing; samplers are very appealing to me, and these are so nice.
    BTW, I get a warning when I try to download any of the PDF files, saying that it may a contain a virus or malicious sypware. Should I believe it, or trust that the files are not damages in any way? Thanks!

      Hi Ana Luisa,
      You have a very pretty name. Thank you for writing. I’m delighted that you like my designs. My PDF files should all be safe to download as I have a high level of security on my computer. I think that some computer software sends automatic alerts like the one you received, as a matter of course. I have received similar warnings concerning sites and PDFs that I know to be safe.

  4. Thank you for this gorgeous sampler and the so true sentence !
    Warmest thoughts from France.
