Almost there

I'm almost finished with Bluebird's Message. Just a bit of border to go. I think I will leave work a little early today and finish it up. I'll pop a new project in my bag tomorrow. What to do, what to do.

I could start on this, the Barnyard Wool Whimseys from Heart in Hand. I have all but the pig - and the fabric I ordered came in the mail yesterday. I'm doing all four on the same piece of 32 count Summer Khaki. Normally I don't go for cutesy stuff but these are more folk art than cute I think and I could not resist them. And I bought them all for less than $10.00 a piece - that is half off retail. I love a good deal.

Or I can start on Sampler of Stitches from The Drawn Thread - I'm already to go with the first two parts - my silks from Vikki Clayton came last week.







Or maybe something that I've had hanging around for a couple of months? I've had the Quaker Samplers from With My Needle ready to go since October. I'm doing them in different colors - one in Milady's Teal and the other in a beautiful green.



Tune in tomorrow to see what I pick next! LOL!

I had a bit of cool news this morning - there were several mentions in other peoples blogs this morning about the Silkweavers Showcase - the winners were announced. So I went over to check it out. I was a finalist in the medium category! Not to bad for my first try :-). From The Drawn Thread, Linen and Lace stitched on 32 count Cameo.

Congratulations to the winners! They are all spectacular!

Your linen and lace is spectacular, and I love your bluebird.
If I was chossing what to stitch next it would have to be the DT Sampler.
