Projects Update

As amazing as it might seem, I am actually on schedule with this project:  Lavender Blue.  This is completed through Part 9.  This project is so gorgeous - it has an old-fashioned feel to it, and is great for when you're tired - few color changes and a repetitive pattern.  Still, it takes quite a lot of stitching time.  The last part comes out in a week or so. I think I will pick one day a week to stitch on this, and pace it out through the end of the year.

And, here is Part 5 of Dawn of Spring.  I do love band samplers, particularly when there are some specialty stitches thrown in. I adore this piece.

And, here is a picture of my pride and joy (not the fish).  I really enjoy reading blogs that show more than just stitching - so I think I will start including more pictures.  This is DS - he and DH just returned from a week of fishing in British Columbia.   

DS is a high school senior this year - they start soccer practice tomorrow.  Can't wait until the season starts!

Well, that's all for now.  I have to go and order the supplies for Jeannette Douglas's pumpkin sampler in this month's JCS.  Happy stitching, everyone!  Margaret C
