I have a few things to show... I know I've been neglecting my blog lately, but as I've said before that doesn't mean I'm not stitching!
First of here is this month's ort report...
Nice and full!
I started a new project this month... Rosewood Manor's Autumn Quaker... Here is where I am... I don't follow instructions all that well, so I started in the middle... not the top left corner...
I am loving the valdini threads that the pattern calls for... I can see more of those in my future!
I've also been plugging along on Humbolt coast... still not done, but each stitch is a step closer! I've really lost my stitching mojo with this one... I just don't want to work on it anymore...but it's such a great piece, that it would be a shame not to finish it very soon!
I also have a finish/happy dance! I finished this one last night... so it is hot off the qsnaps!
It's Cardinal Sampler from the 1994 Nov/Dec issue of BH&G CS&CC magazine...
Please excuse the picture.. I forgot to edit it before I uploaded it... *blush*
There is a ton of backstitch on this thing, literally everything is backstitched! I added beads in the border for the holly berries so spruce things up a bit as well... I didn't want to add my initials or anything, so I just added the 2014 in the blank spaces.
And last but not least... I am having a pay-it-forward, give away... I was gifted the pattern for the Cardinal Sampler design by another stitcher - the pages are from the original magazine, so if you are interested in stitching this, please just leave a comment on this post, and I will pull a name if there is more than 1 person interested and send it off to you... My only request is that once you stitch it, you pay it forward as well. I will take comments until Sunday night June 1st.
