Another Adam and Eve (First Family)

Between weeding, dividing day lilies, a family visit, quilting, metro council meeting and spring cleaning, I finally returned to stitching my Remember the Ladies small Adam and Eve sampler.

I was having a difficult time deciding which one was Adam and which one was Eve.  AppleJack took one look and says "Eve is on the left, she's wearing a bikini."

I'm not loving the pastel colors and after stitching, am going to give the entire piece a walnut wash.  A good job to do out of doors because of the smell and good hot sun to dry.

The tree--it reminds me of a telescope or a stacked wedding cake.

  1. Hmm. I would have said Eve is the one on the right -- she seems to have more in the way of hips?? But maybe not. Looks great so far. I like the colors myself, but I'm sure a good walnut wash would make it pretty too!
