super fast progress


I'm more than half way finished with Bluebird's Message (this is a pretty good picture of the real color of the linen) - it's a super quick piece to stitch. Of course since I left early from work yesterday I was on the slower train so I had an hour and a half to stitch plus I worked on it while watching tv last night for over four hours. I'm almost at the point where my lack of brick thread is going to hold me up. I've completed everything from the heart up (excluding the eyelets) that I can and hope I can do everything below the heart but some of it is long counting and I really can just wait a week to do more. It's not like I need it for anything. :-) I'm thinking this would be a cute pillow also. And I just bet I have a jewel tone allover floral print that would work in my stash.

No plans for the weekend. I do have to take Molly and Clancy to the training center on Saturday for a little work. Molly needs work on her tire jumps and Clancy needs work on his tunnels but that will only take an hour. Maybe I'll take the long drive to my LNS and see what's new in person. And pick up a skein of brick..... LOL!

I'm planning on working on my ornament for the SAL (planning on a second topiary tree) and hopefully having time to complete most of part three of My Workstation project. I'm going to love the piece when it's finished into the workstation but I hate stitching it. Boring, boring boring. I did receive all my silk threads for my Drawn Thread ABC Sampler from Vikki Clayton. They are just lovely. Maybe I should give that a go.... :-) So much to stitch and so little time!

Thanks for all the lovely comments you have left over the past couple of weeks. They all warm my heart. I don't really think I'm a super fast stitcher, but rather an average stitcher who has a lot of extra time. :-)

I did call Drema yesterday to order my Peacock Stitching Chair and she mentioned that she had over 90 emails with questions about it! WOW! So she asked me to mention to be patient and she will get to them all but it will take a several days. Right now she has the price for the chart, fibers and linen for $39.00 but said she expected it to go up because she thought the piece of linen would be too small and would have to include a bigger piece.
