Next up is my progress on Plum Street Samplers Gobble. I've included a before pic so you can see exactly how much I've done. All of this has been done during the holidays, a lot of it while we were driving home to visit family. The border is repetitive so it's a good one to work on in the car.
I didn't think I'd made this much progress until I took the piece off of the Qsnap.
Mind you, I do think I will have to change the date on it. It seems I was a little too optimistic with this one!
As for my new start, this one will also be featured on Becky's BAP Challenge. I've been itching to start this for some time now. There's not much to show but here it is in all it's glory: A Mon Ami Pierre Paradis Perdu.
I'm using the called for count of fabric which is 28ct and I found the perfect piece of Queen Anne's Lace. Unfortunately you can't see the colour all that well in this pic. Hopefully I'll get a better one next time.
I'm stitching this one with Vicky Clayton silks and one NPI silk substitution. It's been ages since I've used silks and I forgot how much I enjoy stitching with them. Too bad I can't afford them all the time!
I've also started another winter ornament but don't have enough progress for a pic yet. I've managed to get in some quality stitching time the past couple of days but I have a busy week ahead so I'm sure there won't be as much to post next time.
I hope you have all had a great weekend and you are fully rested after the busyness of the holiday season.
