Miss B is almost finished -- finally after 20 months. I was hoping to finish her in August, but still have a little more to do on the final motif. Plus I need to decide if I am doing any other personalization on the sampler.
I have loved almost every stitch -- there were a couple of motifs that were stitched, un-stitched and re-stitched, but all things considered, I'm very glad that I decided to do this sampler. I know that I would not be as far along as I am on this project if it were not for the support of this Stitch A-Long!
Photo below shows where I left things at the end of July. I had three motifs left to do, plus planned to put my finishing year in the motif next to the swan.
Best wishes to all the Beatrix Potter stitchers.

Well, there's hardly been any progress this month because I've been doing other stitching and knitting. I put a few stitches in over he weekend and really hope that I can get back into the swing of it next month. Top pic is July and the bottom one is the tiny progress I did on one of the motifs.
I am sorry I have been a little slack lately, My stitching mojo has gone on holiday. But I really look forward to seeing everyone progresses every month, and Remember there are a few months left of this year to get your progress pics in for my little giveaway at the end of the year, Post ten out of the twelve months to be entered.
Happy Stitching Ladies

Hi all! I decided last month that this project WOULD be done by the end of the year & I set goals for myself. I had to stitch at least 2 motifs a month, the rest of the year. Well, I did way more than that last month. (I don't remember now how many I did.) This month, I did FOUR! I only have 5 left to do & one of those is so tiny, I could do it in less than an hour & have it done yet today. But....It is further over & I don't want to count over to it & be wrong. I don't want to risk it, this close to the end!!!!!
So, I have FIVE left....wonder how many months yet?!?!!?!!

I am happy dancing in Nebraska. Here she is completed. I changed the initials in the original sampler to my families. I stitched my initials and the year in the accent color. I have enjoyed stitching this and posting each month. Keep on stitching!!

The above photo is from the end of June. Below is the progress for July. Tish had hoped to finish this month, but between illness and working on a birthday gift, she didn't quite make it. August might be the month to see her finished!
