Gloire du Matin, Week 1

Here is my progress on The Drawn Thread's Gloire du Matin. Carol
and I are stitching this on Saturdays. She is way ahead of me on this project - she is an amazingly fast stitcher; and all of her stitches are perfection. Anyway, you can view her blog to see a good photo of this project. I would be much further along if I had not had to spend so much time unstitching yesterday! I had intended to spend all day stitching; but we left the house at 8:30, and didn't get home until almost 5 pm - DS had soccer practice, orchestra practice, soccer team party, and then an audition for Jr. All State. And of course, each of these events were in different towns. We were exhausted when we finally got home. It was more like a work day than a Saturday.

Since I am finally posting after an extended absence, here is another pic of a WIP. This is Appalachian Rose, a stitching smalls set by Indigo Rose. Last weekend, I attended this class and the Persian Pocket class by Cynthia Zittel (The Drawn Thread) in New Hampshire. These are two of my favorite designers, so I could not resist attending this class. Of course, going to New Hampshire has an additional bonus of getting to see Carol!
Now I'm off to finish a couple of ornaments for some exchanges.
Until next time, Happy stitching! Margaret
