february 9 - oops!!!

I guess this will teach me not to try and upload photos before I've had my first cup of caffeine! I meant to just save these photos and post later, but oh well! Thanks to everyone who saw and made comments!

I just wanted to post a couple of updates...this first project is H is for Hearts from Sam Sarah. We had a "Heart SAL" with the Stitcher's Timeout group last weekend, and this is the piece I stitched. I used the called for fabric (for a change!) and I really like the way it turned out. I think I will probably finish this one as a small pillow...probably not in time for this Valentine's Day, but I'm collecting for next year!


I've also made a little bit of progress on Apple Tree Sampler. This is the piece that I am stitching along with Babs. I'm sure she is farther along than I am!


And finally, this is my progress on Three Things Sampler. I can finally see the finish in sight and am really excited! I have been stitching this piece on and off since 2005 (!) and every time I sit down with it I don't know why I ever put it down in the first place. I love the colors and really enjoy the stitching too. (sorry for the poor photo)


Tonight , I'm planning on stitching some more on Ellen Birdseye, so I should have another update soon.

Thanks for visiting!

  6. Oh my goodness, your Three Things sampler is just too beautiful!! Isn't it funny that we stitch on a piece and lay it aside and when we discover it again we ask why we put it down in the first place?

    Great progress on the Apple Tree Sampler. I just picked up mine from the framer today. It was a great piece to work on! And I love your Heart SAL. Just love those reds.

  17. What a great post with great pictures, Lynda. I love that little heart finish very much and it gives me an idea how I can use the piece of that fabric that I have.
    I love your new SAL piece. And wow, you will finish Three Things very very soon. Isn't it a great piece to stitch? And so much fun. Can't wait to see yours finished.
