I got a little more done this month than in the past few months. I should really be able to progress now thou! I finished the triplets baby sampler this past weekend. What a huge relief! It can be seen on my personal blog.
I finished the second blue motif & did 2 small motifs & started a larger one. I am really enjoying this piece, when I am able to work on it!!!!
Thanks everyone for showing your progress! Keep it up!

I haven't done as much as I would have liked but I am making progress, albeit slow!
This is last months and...
This is this months, so I think I have done half? I am enjoying it and once I get it out I stitch away but so much to do as well and so little time!
The finished ones are wow, Well done!...
PS I took this photo in the artificial light, I haven't dyed my piece pink!!

Here I am at the end of August.
Here I am at the end of September. Not much progress at all, but I have barely stitched on poor Beatrix this month. I was away on vacation for 2 weeks and only worked on a couple of smaller projects. Hopefully, I'll make a bit more progress in October.

So exciting to see so many finished samplers. Don't they look just glorious? I'm on to the border and it surprisingly quick. I think these shapes have more regularity than the floral motifs and so are easier to stitch.
Here's where I was at the end of August
and here I am now
If I aim for a side a month I should be done by years end. Still haven't put in the accents - I started to but decided the colour I had chosen was completely lost on the background, so I unsewed it and will choose somthing a little stronger. I hope you are all enjoying this project as much as I am. Have a productive month,

Not quite sure how, but this seems to have stitched itself this month! It's the busiest time of year for me at work with all the students coming back and I'm often too tired to stitch in the evenings. But the photos prove there are three motifs at the bottom, orange and brown, and one peach one at the top that weren't there last month ;)
Congrats to all who have finished!
to post up this month's updates. So many of us are getting close to the finish line now. It oftens happens at this point that I tend to slow down on a project and really struggle to just do that "last bit". I want to encourage anyone else who feels like this to just keep going and get your name on that finish list. Only three months left after this.

Above is my August progress, and below is my September update...
September was a busy month with kids off to college and husband working out of town up in Northern California at his new job. I'm really glad I have Beatrix Potter to help me think in the "now" of it all! Congratulations to all who have finished...I think I'm well on my way too!

I'm celebrating my finish today - hoorah! I should've waited for a better full daylight picture but I'm headed out of town tomorrow morning for a few days and wanted to get this posted before monthend. My fabric is 36-ct Lakeside Linens Maritime White with various silks - the fabric looks grayish in the photo but better in real life. :) I ran out of my lightest color but a dear stitcher answered my distress post on the Vicki Clayton forum and was able to supply me enough of the same dyelot in order to finish up. Thanks Nicole from Canada!
Thank you Hazel for organizing this SAL - I really enjoyed it and doing 3 motifs per month worked out great for me - not too much but a few evenings each month got me to the finish line. I'll be cheering the rest of you on.

I kept on stitching for another few days after my update last week and I have now finished :) I enjoyed stitching this sampler and have many more quaker samplers still to do. The stats again...stitched on 36ct linen with 1 strand of DMC in the same colour as the original sampler.
Thanks for reading and I look forward to seeing many more finishes as the weeks go by :)

Progress at end of August shown above:
I do have an August update...small though it may be! I'll post photos tonight (here they are!)...my mom has been visiting with her friend and they are camped out in the room where the computer lives so no access! Hope I'm not too late with this!
Here I am..... and my saaaad BP progress.
Here's where she was at the end of June:
And as of last night Beatrix had made it all the way to here:
Wooo hoo! If my needles got any faster, I just don't know what I'd do! [Yes, that was facetiousness.]

I got quite a lot done last month and will (almost fingers crossed) definitely get it finished this month :)
Here's before pic...
Here's after pic
The lowest moitf on the left hand side with the bird in it caused me a few problems I didn't realise it wasn't symmetrical until I had stitched the outline and started filling it in! Everyone else's progress is great and some lovely finishes.
