Quaker Virtues Progress....

I haven't stitched as much as I'd like this past week, but here is what I did get done - not a lot, but I love how it's looking. This was last weekend -
And this is as of last night -

My back/neck/shoulders have been bothering me so I haven't stitched as much - it just makes it worse. BUT I do hope to get more done on it soon. I decided I wanted to try to do a bit of sewing this afternoon so while looking for a pattern this a.m., I kept finding other things I want to stitch on as well - 2 UFO's & one new project that I hadn't thought of much since I got it in Oct! SO.... I think I'll put down QV for a bit & see what else I can work on. We are getting ready to go visit my parents for a bit & then it's home to either stitch or sew for awhile - wish me luck! :-)

OH and I found out something yesterday that has me all excited - (remember, I live in a VERY small town!) - a lady called to see if we carry Needlepoint supplies from the next town over & she told me that TWO (not one, but two!) Quilt shops have opened there! I think it's time for a trip to see what all they have!! Wooohooo!!! Doubt it will be this week, but you never know! :-)

Have a great day - thanks for stopping by & Happy Stitching!

I love the colors and you have made great progress. I too live in a small community and it is big news if anything stitching related opens up. Have fun.

Amy, QV is looking great. You are making great progress. Hope you are out of pain soon. I was working on crocheting a baby blanket and my tennis elbow came back so I have to do a few excercises and wear my arm brace. I hate that..

Have fun while browing the new quilt shops.

Looks like a lot of progress to me! It's beautiful!

How exciting for you to have 2 quilts shops close by! I'll be waiting for your report on them.

Looks good Amy! Interested to know about the quilt shops once you visit. I still haven't found any good ones in Columbia...which is surprising!

happy stitches on your new projects...

Great progress! I hope your neck and shoulders feel better soon. I have bursitis so when my neck and shoulders act up - OUCH! How exciting about the quilt shops. I wish we had just one here and a cross stitch shop!
