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.
