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.

Wow, you have been stitching. How beautiful they all are. I'm not sure which one I like best German mystery, Chatelaine,mystery. Wait, I know - that oh so cool ornament. Gorgeous

You have some great WIPs on the go. And what a lovely finishing you were doing on the ornament.
