Sampler of Stitches MNO / PQR

Sampler of Stitches - MNO / PQR - The Drawn Thread
Recommended 30 count linen
Recommended NPI Silks

I finished up PQR last night leaving the queen stitch quilt for last. I don't know why I think I hate that stitch because I always end up enjoying it. :-) Like all the others, these two charts worked up super quick and I love how they are all looking together. Only three more to go!

I started a small project from the Blackbird Designs book, With Needle and Thread. I'm using a really pretty Silkweavers 28 count called Marine Blue. I'm using the coolest Needle Necessities overdyed floss called Snoqualmie Falls - it's dark marine blue, dark green and dark mauve. Needle Necessities is sadly going out of business so a couple a weeks ago I picked up about 15 skeins of my favorite colors. Anyway, this will be a birthday gift for my sister. She as been really bugging me for about a year now to give her something. Personally I think that's very rude but she just keeps at it. So hopefully this will shut her up for a while. :-) I was going to make a mattress type pincushion out of it, but I think it will finish too big for that so I might end up putting it in a small frame. I'll have a photo tomorrow for sure when I have more than just a couple of letters complete. I should be finished by the end of the week for sure. I'm not sure what I want to start next/finish up. I'm not really enjoying working on Quaker Samplings from CHS but I really want it finished. So maybe I'll work on that for a couple of days and start the new Blackbird Designs Loose Feather. I'm already to go with that one.

DT is gorgeous! I need to get busy. The only allowed to nag me about stitching something for them is my mom. She can ask all she wants :-).

The DT sampler is just beautiful. I have a DT in my stash. I should get it out and stitch on it.

I really love how this is looking stitched up as one piece, I think you may be enabling me!

Congratulations to clancy for doing so well on his trial, and to you for getting a new little pug. The picture of the puppies was adorable.

Your sampler is gorgeous! You've really been cruising along with it. How sweet of you to stitch something for your sister even after all her bugging. I hate it when people bug and bug in an effort to wear you down. I just got that bugging thing from a friend of mine.
