Give me an A!



I love working on this piece. It really is a lot of fun using all the different stitches. I finished up A yesterday and B this morning. Now onto C. It looks like C will take a little longer than the first two sections but I'll work on it before I take Clancy to agility so I'll be popping DEF into my bag for sure for tomorrow's train rides. :-)


Thanks to the commenter who mentioned some of the pattern problems with DEF. Someone from the Legacy Board also posted that there were a few errors so I printed it off and have made notes onto my charts. So hopefully all will go well. :-)


I need to start planning my next train ride project already as I'm sure I'll need one next Monday for sure. These Drawn Thread pieces are flying off my needles. Since I enjoyed Quaker Samplings I so much, maybe Quaker Samplings II? I'm going with the recommended threads for this one - Milady's Teal. It goes really nice with the thread I used for the first piece. I also need to work on the piece for the Tie-on Pillow class for the Focus on Finishing group. The planned weekend is the 24th and 25th. I have picked out this piece from The Sunflower Seed - Celtic Bird. And I purchased a piece of 40 count! Have you seen how small those threads are?? LOL! What am I thinking! :-)

I also need to get a head start on my Christmas ornament for the month - I will be at an agility trial on the 31st and 1st so I won't be able to get much stitching done at all those two days and I don't want to miss a month. I love the idea of having 12 ornaments done before the holiday's even start. This year my stitching tree will be so pretty! I'll have almost 20 ornaments on it this year.

OMG, you have more progress to show. It's amazing as are your recent finishes. Either you stitch at work or you don't sleep at night, which is it???? I just love those birds.

I don't know how you do it. I'd still be counting and then recounting before ever getting a single stitch in place.
