Garden Verses

I wish I could say I've been stitching all the things but I've only been making slow progress on Garden Verses.

Page finish and an OLD WIP

Friday, I finished page 1 of Old European Sampler.  I really like the colors in this with the pops of color in the browns.  

I moved the qsnaps and threaded my needle to start page 2 and lost interest in this for now so I tried The Forgotten by Charting Creations.  Zero progress on that one too.  So I dug around in my WIPs and found one of the two oldest WIPs I have.  I still need to dig the other one out.  I don't think it has very much left on it.

Anyway, Here is Mirabilia's Garden Verses when I pulled it out Friday.  I was using DMC metallic in this and hated it which may be why I haven't made a lot of progress in the last 10 years.  That and the fabric is not good.  I remember pulling it out since I had it and the chart would fit.  I'm going to stick it out though.

Friday night, I frogged the metallic and I've since restitched with PTB and made some nice progress on the left side.  I'm really looking forward to getting into some of the richer colors and away from the ecru and browns.

That may have worked

Starting Old European Sampler may be entertaining my stitchy bug.  I've made some great progress over the last week.

Hopefully that continues and I see a page finish soon.

Here stitchy bug!

I'm still trying to tempt my stitchy bug and it's not working so well.

Last Thursday, I couldn't face any more roses on Beaded Dragonfly Tile for a bit.  It was bad enough that I didn't even finish the leaves I was working on.  

I pull it off my qsnaps and pulled He Came With the Rain back out for the weekend.

I put about 1050 stitches in this and pulled it back off my qsnaps.  Then I went digging through some older kitted projects and found Steve Rousseau's Old European Sampler that was a freebie through the Needleprint blog in 2010

I have this kitted in HDF silks and made a little progress last night.

Time will tell if this one stays out for a bit.
