So close!

I'm hoping to finish this page tonight.

I really like that last band.  Kind of a pain to stitch but the result is lovely.

I started this 1/1/2020 and just haven't had the urge to go back to it.  As I've watched the progression of the pattern on Facebook, I'm glad I haven't picked it back up.  I'll probably frog it and put the fabric and silk back into stash for another project.

I'm still working on Old European Sampler from Steve Rousseau via the old Needleprint blog.  I'm hoping for a page finish in the next couple of days.

I finished the first alphabet and started the next last night, then hit a wall and had to put it up.  

I haven't decided what I'll pull out next.  I have Chatelaine's Blue Moroccan Lace out, waiting for me.  I've also been thinking about another monochrome Stickideen Von Der Wiehenburg's Coat of Arms which would be easy to work on in the evenings when I can't think any more after work.

I made some lovely progress on Louisa this week.  Sadly, it was all made yesterday. 

The first row of alphabet is complete and I've now found both sides.

Hopefully, after I finish this alphabet, the remaining smaller less ornate alphabets will move quicker.

I think my stitchy bug has decided I've abandoned it since work has been crazy with a couple 80+ hour weeks at the end of February.  Such is the life in an accounting firm during tax season.

The little bit of stitching I've been doing has been hit and miss.  I have had trouble settling on any one piece of stitching to make any real progress on it.

I made some really nice progress on Cherry Hollow Farm Sampler by Stacy Nash, then got over the berries.

Then, I pulled out Celtic Snow from Norther Expressions and finished this corner.  Then didn't want to stitch on it any more.

Heritage Sampler from Chatelaine was up next.  I added a little then couldn't handle color changes.


Then I pulled out Louisa Coulimore last night and added 60 stitches and felt pretty good about it so maybe there will be more tonight.

Not much happened this week.  I'm working too many hours right now which means I come home and if I do stitch at all, I only manage a few stitches.

I have managed a little though.

Yesterday, I pulled out Cherry Hill Farm and frogged the basket I stitched last year since I managed to orient it the wrong way on the fabric.  I restitched it then started on the fill and added some fruit.

Sadly, work has been kicking my butt so far this month and stitching has been taking a definite back seat.  BUT, I have gotten a little done on Earth Song.
