sunday sal and other wips

well here we are again!  time for a sunday sal update!

I didn't get as much time to stitch as I had hoped to yesterday, but I still was able to get a few stitches in Cornwall Cottage.

 
 
I am looking forward to seeing how Barbi and Linda did this weekend!

I also managed to put in a few stitches in an older wip last week... I pulled out Autumn Quakers, also by Rosewood Manor, and got a nice chunk in that one done too, however that pesky frog came for a visit and took a bite out of my Autumn Quakers...

I've reached the bottom left corner of the pattern, and that big bottom motif is 2 stitches off... now that doesn't seem like a big deal in the larger scheme of things, however, being off throws the rest of the motifs off in the pattern that are to the right of it... Since it is stitched in Valdini thread (read awesome but expensive thread) I haven't decided what I'm going to do... Right now I'm leaning towards working on the rest of it, going down on the right side and then fudging the stuff in the middle, but we will see... I've put it aside, as the mistake is just glaring at me, and I can't seem to see around it...
So what is a girl to do when the frog attacks... well, it's start another project or two, and that is exactly what I did!

I started a crochet project... it will be a blanket of some sort... just not sure how or how big yet...


I have a little more done since taking the picture...

And I also started another cross stitch project... this one is La-D-Da's Harvest House...

this is what it will look like when done...


and this is a quick progress pic of what I had done up to Saturday night...


I'm stitching it on Crafty Kitten's 32ct Jurassic sands jobelan and using a combination of Nina's, GAST and WDW threads...

That's it for now, till next time happy stitching!

I love the colours on your Autumn Quaker. I would definitely be fudging and not frogging! Hope it works out OK.
