I have a finish!

This is Zoe's Sampler by Le Grenier de ZoĆ©, a project on the Sticklounge Yahoo Group.  It was a nice quick stitch and I loved the thread color; looks better stitched than it did on the skein. 

The group owners announced a couple of weeks ago that the group would be closing in June, which is very sad.  This is probably the last design I will stitch with them.  The others I've done through this group were A Tribute to Ackworth by Barbara J., Fleur et Papillon by Angie Designer, and Many Years Ago by Gudi Kolden.  This is an international group of half German and half English speaking members.

February update

Gosh, it's been a long time since I updated this blog but I have been stitching, honest!  I've probably not been stitching as much as I'd like but I have made quite a bit of progress on Plum Pudding by Glendon Place.  I am absolutely loving stitching this piece and the Dinky Dye silks it's stitched with are wonderful.  First time using them and it won't be my last.  Anyway, here is a picture, this was taken a couple of weeks ago and I've done a bit more since.  When I get my camera out again I'll take another one.

The fabric is an overdye from Silkweaver and I've no idea what the color is, I think it was one of their solos.  It's very difficult to get an accurate picture of the colors but this one is close. 

I've also got Grasshopper Pie and Cherries Jubilee in my stash and I believe the designer has more like this in the works.

I'm itching to get some updates on my other projects but there are only so many stitching hours in the week; working full-time really interferes with that, LOL! 

I have made some progress on Confetti of Hardanger (pictured in previous post), I've done some of the weaving  and will take a photo in due course, so stay tuned!
