I finished part 7 of this one last night while the boys were playing ball and lasagna was in the oven.  There is only one part to finish on this one for which I'm thankful.  I started this piece not exactly excited about the colors but I liked the proverb.  Just a little further and it will be done!

Rencently on the HDF blog, there's been a lot of talk about a 17th century sampler reproductions and I got bit by that bug, hard!  You can see Loara Standish here  She's a pretty band sampler that, from what I read, is the oldest signed American sampler.  Pretty cool huh?  In my wandering through what google listed for me, I also found Elizabeth Creasey.  I guess it's a good thing my birthday is coming in a couple of months because that one got ordered too.  I pretty much blew my stash budget, but it was so much fun! 

Joyce, Sticklounge is only open to 100 member and they've split that between German and English speaking members.  I'll try to post something here if they open it back up.  If that happens, when/if you join, just let them know I'll be your godmother.

Patches, if you're interested in doing a conversion to HDF let me know.  If it's one I've done, I can let you know what I've done.  If I haven't I'm more than willing to help you come up with one.

Later!  Gotta at least pretend to work today. :)
