I've been stitching.....

Thought I'd post a couple of updates of what I've been working on. First is my start on ByGone Sitches Quaker Virtues. I haven't worked on it much, but this is my progress as of now. I haven't stitched on it since Saturday the 7th. It's stitched on 25 ct Vintage Country Mocha (over 1) with DMC 815. It will be pretty when finished I think... whenever that might be! ;-) I'm stitching on it along with Terry, Vonna, Nicole & several other gals. You can see the blog that Nicole started for us here.... ByGone Quakers SAL.

I have SO MANY pieces I want to stitch & decided on Sunday evening to pull one out, so I did. This is Shepherd's Bush "My Earth". I worked on it the past 3 nights & this is how far I've gotten so far. At least it's more than on QV & I promise I've worked on QV more hours! I guess that's the difference between over 1 & over 2 huh? This is a kit & it uses 32 ct Belfast & silk threads. Gotta love those silks. I want to get the mats from Jill Rensel for it one of these days! ;-)

The weather here has been GORGEOUS - in the low 80's & sunny. It's going to go back to cold (to me) and rainy though on Friday. What a wonderful birthday gift huh? I so dislike cold-dreary-rainy days. :-( Oh well.... maybe the weather will be better on Ray's birthday next week!

CindyMae, your pkg went out yesterday for being the winner of the drawing for my blogging anniversary. Hope you will enjoy what I sent you. Thanks again to all who commented.

I updated my Sale/Trade blog this afternooon in case anyone is interested. The link is on the left sidebar or you can find it here too!

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great rest of the week & happy stitching!

I love your start on Virtues. Vintage Country Mocha is one of my favorite fabrics and that red is absolutely perfect for it. And I also love your start on your DB.

OV is looking great so. I love over 1 though it does take longer I love the look over 1 gives a design.

Your SB piece is going to be so pretty. I love their designs.

Glad to hear the weather is warm..I was worried about our pipes last week with the weather being so cold.

Take Care
