Many Projects Update

Well, I have been stitching, but not blogging. Our snow is finally gone (yea) and my daffodils are about three inches high. The sad part is that I fell and fractured my leg, so no gardening for me for the next few weeks. I suppose an optimist would simply be glad of the extra stitching time, no?

Here's my latest start - I want a series of "Scottish" reproduction samplers - primarily red and green. To get that series started, here is Ann Taylor by Heartstring Primitives. I am using 32 ct. Days Gone By from Silkweavers and premium HDF floss in Pennyworts, Everlasting, and Dried Roses. I am just picking colors as I go.

Next is Part 8 of the German Group Mystery Sampler:

An update on Moonstone Garden:

And here is Part 8 of Seba Designs Blackwork Mystery SAL:

Then, in my never ending quest to find a finishing technique that I am actually good at, here is the Mystery zigougou Noel from Hohla ( There are many great SAL's on her site. Go check it out if you have never been there. My project was done with opalescent white Belfast and HDf fibers - Yonder Skies and Befrogged. The ornie has a lot of Krenik braid on it, also. Sadly my photo doesn't capture that very well.

Well, that's all for today.
