 Well, having finished DO Different, I have been thinking about two other patterns and simply can't decide.  So please chime in with your comments.

First Photo up is my Laurel Burch Painter Canvas - CATS

I do have parts of the cats done.  The one to the far left has not been started.
  The others have all been started but no one cat has been finished.

The Second Choice is Pandemic by Long Dog Samplers

As you can see, this one needs a long of work as well as the Cats.

What would you like to see more of?

Meanwhile check out the other stitchers.

 SAL time.

Be sure to look at everyone else's stitching as well.



IT"S DONE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Do Different by Long Dog Samplers   is complete.

Here's the overall shot.

To make it it easy to see
I took 4 photos
starting with the upper left

on to the lower left

next, the upper right

lastly the lower right

And now to decide on a new project.

I have two that I am debating on.
I'll let you know next reporting time.

Don't forget the list above to check out the others.

SAL time

 It's SAL time and the news is disappointing.

We recently lost a member unexpectedly.  Prayers for Carmela's family and thanks to her brother for letting the admin know what happened.  

Secondly, I have been swamped with deadlines of other things, all non-stitching, that my progress is barely there.  My short bursts of stitching during this period have not taken me very far.

last time:

as of late last night:


right bottom is nearly done
the rest will be in the darker red to match the other 4 corners

I didn't feel like changing threads
so I started previously blank area.

Progress is being made, just more slowly at time than others.

 It's Pi day!

 Hard to believe how fast the past three weeks have gone.  I can't say I got a lot of stitching in.  It seemed like I was always frogging.  There was an area I did three times before I got it right,  But I have plugged away at Do DIfferent.

My camera wasn't as nice to me though.  I emailed myself the photo for the day at 10 am and it just arrived at nearly 8 pm.  My phone/camera has been doing that a lot lately.

This is last time

Today's update

As you can tell, I worked on the big floral area
in the four corners but I didn't 
get the 4th corner completed.

Don't forget the look at the other stitchers' beautiful stitching.
