My New Start

I know, I know, I promised all of you a picture of my new start for yesterday and well I never blogged. I was tired, I had driven home in a bad snow storm, cranky and headachy. Thus no blog entry.

So as promised, here it is my new start and a gift for a friend of mine : Macdonald Maple leaf by Lynne Nicoletti. I'm stitching it on 28ct white evenweave using DMC, I am quite enjoying it so far.

Ooo cool. I can't wait to see this develop. I seem to recollect that I've seen and liked this pattern. Now I get to see it "grow up." :)

Congratulations on a new start. I'm looking forward to seeing more of it, but it already looks very promising.

Great start, Dani! I went and looked up the design because I was unfamiliar with it, and it is beautiful. It will be fun to watch this one grow.

Hey, I'd be more than a little tired and cranky if I had to drive in a snow storm.

Stay safe and warm:)

Nice start!

You are going to love stitching that piece ! It's one of the only designs I've ever wanted to stitch more than once, and that's the one that got me hooked on her "hidden image" designs. I finally got mine framed a few months ago, and it is just gorgeous. Can't wait to see yours "evolve" too :D

Your project is looking good, great start. I'm not familiar with that design, think I need to go look it up. :)

Oops, went back to copy and past the name to look it up, and realized you had it linked in your entry. It is going to be beautiful.

Hi Dani,

Hmmm...this looks interesting.
That's a beautiful shade of red.
Wonder what all that swirl of
colour is becoming?

I'm so glad to hear that you
have made such great progress
with the treatments for your
foot injury and may not require
any further injections. I'm
keeping my fingers crossed for

I wonder which TW design you'll
be stitching for your friends
baby. Those designs scare me
silly, all those colour changes
and so on, but I love watching
you stitch them. You make them
look so easy.

Sounds like you had another
wonderful stitcher's gathering
at Ann's back on January 17th.
Thankfully the weather didn't
interfere too much with the
gathering. You must be pretty
use to driving in such wintery
weather though.

And you've got a week in FLorida
to look forward to in March. So
when the snow flies and the
temperature plunges (again) back
down to -56 or whatever you can
just count down the days left
until you fly down there. Um...
any room in your luggage for a
