Well, today is the last day of my vacation... (sad face) I did manage to get a fair amount of stitching done, either at the timeshare or at home. So, without further ado... here come the pictures! My progress on the freebie from Heartstring Samplery/Beth Twist called 'Make It Do" Finished the borders on the Summer Mystery SAL by With Thy Needle, called Birds of a Feather. I hope to do one flower a day in June, which should bring me right up to when the next installment arrives! I FINALLY finished the border on this one, after having to tear it out 4 times! Then I just had to stitch some of the inside!! It is pretty cute so far, despite the crappity picture I took... This is on my list of Challenge pieces. A little more progress on Cast Your Cares by My Big Toe, one of my Vacation starts from last year! Also one of my Up for a Challenge pieces! And a bit of work on the Bent Creek "Cabin in the Woods", another one from last year's Vacation starts and on this year's Challenge list on my sidebar. I sure wish I could stitch more --have a ways to go! Then, as if I do not have enough projects going at one time, I started Border Study in Red, the pattern I HAD to have and hunted down!! Am using 36-count Lakeside Linen called 'Vintage Exemplar", which is a new count for me. I usually stick to 32-count but just thought these patterns (I also have #2!!) would look good a little smaller. I am changing it a tiny bit here and there--my personal touch you see...
I stitched a wee bit more on 'Sachet' by Marc Davis of Needlemania. Love the piece, but love so many others too! It's a BAP, so I plug away every now and then.
I worked on 'A New Day' by My Big Toe, and got the entire top border done, and was working on the flowers...BUT, the fabric was just not my cup of tea, so will get a different color and start anew, at a later date. So, NO picture of that.
It sure doesn't look like much stitching... but I am not a fast stitcher, unless it is in a Q-Snap, and not many are. However, it is my passion and I love doing it, and that's all that matters!
I know that Blogger is messed up as far as commenting, so... be patient. They may come through if enough of us complain!!
