Is there anyone else?

Still got this to finish apart from me?

Yay! Finished!

It's finished!! The last stitch went in at 9:15 last night. I've put my initials in it but decided to leave others out. So, here is my Beatrix Potter Quaker sampler, started on 1st January 2010 and finished over a year and 7 months later!

Thank you so much, Rachael, for managing this blog and to everyone for the support over the last 19 months.

The long lost returns

I've been MIA for a loooong time, but I have been making progress.... possibly at the rate of 1 stitch every 2.37 days. Frankly I count myself lucky that I haven't lost any of the beads or threads.

Still Beatrix is getting there --

I have even finished the motif that the above picture only shows as a bare start --

Good luck everyone!

January and February Progress

In January and February I managed one whole motif as well as finishing another and starting two more. I have now done all around the outside and need to move into the middle. Actually I just need to stitch a bit more on Beatrix than I did these past two months. In my defence I have been busy with pre-stitching for two classes that I have now taken, so hopefully, more time for the sampler.

This is where I was at the beginning of the year:

And this is as at 21 February:

Same linen, just not very good lighting!

See you at the end of March!

Sandy's Gift Certificate Stash

I wanted to let everyone know what I picked out with my gift certificate from Anita's. When I saw Little House Needleworks new design "Hillside Travelers", I knew I had to have it. So I got the chart and all the fibers and a cut of fabric. I also picked out the newest Anniversaries of the Heart pattern - Pumpkin farm from Blackbird Designs. Thank you again Rachael and Anita. I love my stash!!! Keep up the good work ladies.

Here I go again!

This is where I was when I last posted in January 2010, after which I stopped due to far too many other commitments during the year. I am now hoping to finish Miss Potter by the end of 2011 and am very glad that the SAL is still going. So who else is still out there?

Congratulations to all those who have finished, I have just spent the last half hour catching up on the blog and admiring all the pictures.

Anyone want to join us?

I think it may be Helen and myself, but if there is anyone else who put BP on there UFO plie who wants to get it finished, or someone who wants to start it. Or even if you are just stitching part of it.
Please let me know and I will add you to the blog.
And I am going to try my best to get this finished this year.
