I count...

....34 of us who made some progress in April. Please check if I have made any mistakes! So numbers seeem to be dropping from the 100 that started at the beginning. Sorry to say goodbye for a time to Ladydoc who has temporarily (I hope) withdrawn from the group. Hope that things go better for you soon and for your family. And also want to wish Bonnie all the best for her upcoming surgery on her eyes. Hope you will recover quickly and your eyesight will be much better for you.

This sampler is not for the faint hearted!! It is a whopper of a sampler and sometimes we just have to grit our teeth and get through the boring times. Remember there is no pressure to finish this sampler in a year - just to work on it once a month and show our progress. I love, I really love, all the progress pics and think that each and every one of the samplers is so beautiful and such an inspiration. I wonder what dear old Bea P would say if she were alive today to see them all in their glories. So come on ladies, lets get our mojos working ( a favourite phrase of my dh) and let those needles smoke!

Thank you so much for the words of encouragement. I did have a very tiny bit of progress in April but it was so miniscule that I was rather embarrassed to post it. I've promised myself that May will be better. I've been working on it most of the day today.

Thanks again for your words. I'm sure that I'll come back to them again for another dose of encouragement.

I will post my pic of progress (if you call it that) for April. It was only about 15 stitches, but it was progress. LOL

My progress consisted of the frogging of one half of a large motif because I didn't like the colour. Otherwise, not much stitching has gone on at all here, but hopefully, by the end of May, I'll be able to share some more progress!
