A page finish

Saturday night, I finished page 3 of Old European Sampler.  I really like how quickly this one stitches up because of the pattern repeats.

I would have made more progress but I got sidetracked into working on the bathroom in the basement.  The boys were outside weeding the garden in 90+ degrees so I'll take the basement.  I'm not fast and I'm very messy, but I do eventually

I'm planning on sanding in the next couple of nights so I can add the next coat of mud and make more progress.  But that takes away from my stitchy time so it may wait until next weekend.

A couple of projects

I worked on Sea Witch until I reached my limit on black for a couple of days.  

Then I pulled out Steve Rousseau's Old European Sampler that was a freebie at one time though Needleprint.  If anyone knows if this is still available anywhere, please let me know.  I have a friend who would like to stitch it.

Here's my progress over the weekend.  Not much, but there is progress.

A Finish!

I had thought to finish Garden Verses last night but there will still 200+ stitches in the border before I got to the feathered pen!  Since I bring my stitching to work to pull out over lunch, I finished at the end of my lunch hour.  

HAED's Sea Witch is next out.  This one is on 28 ct Monaco I dyed 2x1 tent.  Page three is mostly black so I'm hoping I can get to a page finish soonish.

I almost finished Garden Verses last night.  There just aren't enough hours in the day when you have to work the next morning.

Hopefully tonight!

Garden Verses 5/29/18

I'm still plugging along.  That uppermost row of stitches are the bottom of her chin.  I looks like I may just squeak an upper border but it looks like there will be one.  The top edge of the fabric is under the upper side of my qsnap.

Garden Verses 5/21/18

While I'm not thrilled about how her hand looks, I am NOT going to rip it out to rechart.

Progress continues and I'm hoping to finish in the next couple of weeks.

Garden Verses 5/14/18

I made lots of progress on Garden Verses over the weekend.  The balustrade and railing are complete.  All the upper right corner needs is the metallic border but I want to do the upper left border first to make sure they match up.

I started on the papers in the lady's lap last night and hope to finish those tonight so I can move up to her top half!
