Goals, Accolade Rotation, and a Little Thistle Info

We are about good week into the month of April now and time to update you on yow I did with my March stitching goals and what I'd like to get done this month.


March Stitching Goals - Reviewed
  • Stitch one ornament - I stitched 6!
  • Stitch Just Nan Gingerbread Mouse - Done and oh so cute!
  • Finish D is for Dove - I actually finished D-G!
  • Work on the Accolade - Yup

April Stitching Goals
  • Stitch an ornament
  • Complete at least 3 rows on page 6 of The Accolade
  • Finish J for Baby Jesus on Christmas ABC Sampler
  • Finish Winter Cottage by Michael Powell
I finished my latest rotation on the Accolade mid week and this is where it stands right now.  I'm enjoying the witnesses of this knighting appear out of the shadows!


I'm now onto my smalls rotation, as much as I enjoy my other pieces, this part is fun because I find I get so much done moving from one little piece to the next over a couple of days!


A number of you have shown interest in the Tartan Thistle Scissor Keep I finished up in my last blog entry.  There was so much stitching to share in that last entry that I didn't give all the details that I normally would!  So here's the details :
