Stitching Updates

Alrighty, lets hope you all find this post much more interesting than my weekend report. Not up to my normal standard was it? Sorry about that!

Let's see what has been going on stitching wise, my Fair & Square round 3 was received by Pokua and I'm glad to see she's very happy with it! Mine is on its way and I can't wait to see it!

The Alphabet was added to increase the height of the design

Using GAST, WDW & Whisper

Earlier this week I finished the first panel on the Pomegranate Needlebook by Jeannette Douglas. I'm really looking forward to getting back to this and trying out her finishing instructions.

Also this week I started Heather's RR, her theme is Farm and I'm stitching up Dragon Dream's Of Farm and Field. I should be able to finish it up tomorrow night! (my part is bottom right)

Finally, on Tuesday of this week I'll be starting Paradigm Lost! Finally! Kathy says she'll be crossing into the US that day and I wasn't allowed to start until she crossed. You can follow our progress and that of our SAL mates (some are stitching Cirque des Cercles) at the Snowbird's SAL blog. If you'd like to stitch one of these two projects or have it started you're welcome to join us. Just send me an e-mail for an invite to the blog!

I have an RSS feed to your Snowbird blog. I am interested in seeing all the different threads and fabrics for CdC and PL. I thought long and hard about joining, but although I like Long Dog Designs and Ink Circle designs, I'm not really up for a BAP with only one thread (even if it is variegated). Instead I'm starting Chatelaine's Online Class #18 -- HAWAIIAN MANDALA. We will be in Maui this Friday.

I love the Fair and Square piece you stitched, the thread for PL looks gorgeous, looking forward to watching your progress.

I love pomegranate motifs - is this pattern published yet? It's going to end up gorgeous - you've done an amazing job so far!!

Cheryl said...

Lovely squares you sent to Pokua!
I really like that RR too.
Great colour choice for PL, im looking forward to the SAL :)

You have been busy! Fair & Square, round robins ... good grief. They all look lovely and I love the fabric and floss you've chosen for Paradigm Lost.

I would have liked to have joined your Snowbird SAL but I can't spend anymore on stash at the moment so a Little Cat PL will have to wait.

Now, that's a Dani Post. Your Fair and Square is beautiful. I love those little sheep. Pomegranate and Pears is shaping up nicely. Your square for the Neighborhood is just perfect and the pumpkins are the right choice for this time of year. Will be in touch when I can. Paradigm - here we come!

Looks like you've been busy! Love your Fair & Square squares, as I'm sure will Pokua! I'm intrigued with the Pomegranate piece, definitely looking forward to your progress on that. Love your choices for PL - I'm so looking forward to getting started on that one again!

Farm and Field is beautiful. I didn't know Dragon Dreams designed anything like that. It's gorgeous.
