Regular update

 Here are two more updates (not part of the 3-week SAL).

First up is the Mayflower 
(aka Coming to America)
Lots to go yet.

This is Morning Sunrise
My virtual ANG seminar class piece
The other class has not yet arrived
This is 90% of the first lesson (4 total)

And that's it for a Monday morning.
Have a great week.

 Progress (if you can call it that) on Coming to America

I just learned you can't remove a photo.  I meant
to rotate the photo before posting and forgot. Sorry
This was Day 1.

Day 2

I won't bother with Day 3.
I finished the anchor and went to start the sails.
The color is basically the color of the fabric
everything was lost in the fabric
so now I am going to change the color of the sails
probably to a "dirty" white / ecru.

This is Do Different
(long Dig Sampler)
Slow progress due to the Mystery Sampler

Mystery Sampler 2020 - September
I knew I needed to get this done
before the Mayflower Sampler and the 1st ANG class.
September is done  (right side)
Now I can concentrate on the ANG class and Mayflower

This is my fabric for the Mayflower Sampler
Aka Coming to America
36 count,  Winter brew

That's it for the moment

September is Needlepoint month.  I could do with some company while I needlepoint.

I got mail !

 Yesterday, much to my surprise I got mail.  Two boxes!  Yikes I haven't had that much mail that wasn't a bill, in I don't know how long.  And I literally mean that.  

First the updates:

This is Liberty For all.
I started in on July 4th
I probably should have been done but I have worked on a few other things.

This is called Do Different.
And I am.
Main outside borders are black
Interior borders are a med-dark red
and the lovely work inside is a DMC variegated thread
I have not decided what colors the lettering will be in.

This is about the top quarter.
The black borders are more or less set so I can stitch without counting
It's basted down on both sides.
I really want to do some of the variegated thread so I 
worked on the left side a bit.
For all those "stair look" areas, I basted across to make sure it matched up.
I'm really enjoying this!

And I will need to tear myself away to start my ANG classes and other SALs 
Women of the Mayflower

Here's the mail:

This one has me really excited because I have two Mayflower ancestors. 
What a great way to combine my love of Needlework and genealogy.

Sunrise Reflections

My ANG class
The other one has not arrived yet.
So this one gets the first priority
The photo is small but the e-class list may still be on the website.
I am looking forward to lesson #1 to arrive.

And that's it for now.
