A Start, A Finish, And Some Progress

I have been a busy little cross stitch bee, and here are the results.

I started a new Project, Blue Ribbon Designs "A Sampling In The Square"

I am using a 28 ct Antique White Monaco, with the following Weeks Dye Works floss:
Bluecoat Blue, Bluecoat Red, Bright Leaf, Chestnut, Curry, Deep Sea, Garnet, Holly, Hunter, Peoria Purple, and Sweet Potato in a 2 over 2 (Thanks Jennifer).


A Finish
LHN's "Colonial Homes" which just needs a press and a framing.

















And Some Progress on Linda Myers "Quilt Band Sampler"

  6. Woo-Girl!!! That is beautiful colors! And your stitching progress is awesome.
    Hey, you make me blush with your compliments......but thanks again. I think your stitching (and your picture taking) is A++++++

    What kind of camera do you have? You have some good closeup pics.
    I was so glad to get my husbands
    former evidence camera. It's a 10 year old Kodak but it was so much better than what I had before.
    I dream of a Nikkon one day.....
    ahhhhh

  7. Thanks Jennifer...it's all true about ya ;) You make me blush that you like my stitching and how it's improving :)

    The pics were all hubby, his camera and his telling me what to do and how to do it, he is an amazing photog, that is one of his many hobbies. I asked for a camera for my birthday, so I have my fingers crossed :) then I can take all sorts of pics for the bloggy.

    Your pics are always awesome so I gotta agree that Nikon is hot!

    Hugs

  9. I forgot to add Karin, how appreciative I am that you sent me this pattern ~ along with all the thread! I am starting this weekend and can't wait. To see your progress is wonderful! The cross stitch I have for you "Australian Federation House" is very nice and I think you are going to do a magnificent job with it.

    I can't believe you have only been stitching since May. WOW!!!
    You do incredible work. Your colors and stitches are perfect. Keep up the good work.
    I have been stitching for almost 28 years and I dearly love it. I try to stitch a little everyday, or rather night and I seldom get tired of it. Let me know if you need any help.
