The Rainbow Bridge

On December 9th we lost our little cat Boots, he had a cancerous tumor. We also lost Cindy on February 14th, 2006, and Smokey on February 22nd, 2005. In memory of them I'm stitching The Rainbow Bridge and I'm going to give it to my vet.
The design is by Sue Hillis and I'm stitching it on 32 count hand dyed lugana that I got from The Blended Needle a few years ago.
The picture is my progress as of December 19th. I started this on Thursday, December 14th, 2006.

Finally finished the sampler! This is the Mystery Sampler as featured in the Gift of Stitching Magazine. The design is by Yvonne Horn of Papillon Creations. It is stitched on 40 count Ricamo/Ivory linen using DMC threads.
I changed the center motif somewhat but otherwise it's done as is.

Almost done!

Well, I'm almost done with the Mystery Sampler, don't have a new photo at this time though. I've finished all the main stitching and the border around the center. I'm now undecided as to what to do in the middle. I'm not sure if I'll do as is with the alphabets & peacock, or just do the peacock and my initials and date! Will decide in the next couple of days and will hopefully finish this piece this week.

After finishing Fairy Grandmother, I started stitching on the Mystery Sampler from Papillon Creations. This design is featured in the Gift of Stitching Magazine over 5 issues. I started it back in February but life got in the way and I'm just now getting back to it. It is stitched on 40 count Ricamo/Ivory with 1 strand of DMC.

My Latest Finish

Design Name: Fairy Grandmother
Designer: Marilyn Leavitt-Imblum, Lavender & Lace
Copyright: 1997 Told In A Garden

Here is my latest stitching finish. I completed the last bead on November 21st, 2006. I started this project in January 2005 but have been waylaid along the way! It is stitched on 32 count hand dyed Lugana from Silkweaver which came in a Fabric of the Month Package in September 2004. I altered the design by omitting the brown foliage.
