St. Reatham Thursday

Here is my progress from my second St. Reatham Thursday. I did a little (and I mean little) last Thursday while on vacation so I'm not counting it as an official day. :-) My new camera really picks up the colors in the linen. This project is pretty easy to lug around. I'm using a hoop instead of Q-snaps (all my three sets are busy) so it just tosses into my stitching bag so I can bring it on the train. So St. Reatham Thursday's are just that - all St. Reatham. That extra three hours from my rides will help this piece progress faster.



Here is Quaker Samplings II - I'm at the bottom margin now. I'm hoping to have this piece finished by next week but I don't have any plans on working on it over the weekend so that might not be enough time. We'll see.


I've been quite sick since I came back from my vacation - I have no idea what I picked up but in any case I'm really looking forward to doing nothing all weekend. It will be nice outside so maybe the pugs and I can go for a nice walk. As for stitching, I plan on finishing My Treasured Workstation and starting block one of the Village. Have a good one!

Here is one more photo of St. Reatham - it really shows the linen color well.

Wow, such lovely stitching, I'm envious :) You're right, the camera does bring out the colour of the linen. I think the linen and the thread make a very good contrast. Your pugs are so sweet. There's something about their faces that make them so adorable! I hope Miss Molly is better than she was - and I hope you're feeling better too :)
