 MY SAL report was supposed to be on the 2nd.  I took my photo on late/early am of Sunday and went off to bed, far too tired to write anything.  Then Sunday while in the kitchen, I went to turn one direction but only half of me went and the other half stayed still -out went the back.  Not a comfortable thing and this was the worst that I have have had happened.  Usually a few hours of laying still and a wonderful heating pad works wonders.  This time, it's been over a week and I had to add some pain killers and visit to the chiropractor.  Now things are better.  So, a way bit late, here is Klimt - my SAL piece:

Hopefully more tomorrow.

Two updates.  I admit I only worked on two projects this past week.

Liberty For All

I started this piece on the 4th of July
I outlined the bowl (the white barely seen)
so that I can just fill in and not look at the chart
Now to find the perfect greens for the leaves.


Currently this is my big piece.
I haven't made much progress this week.
(I really wanted to work on the other piece)

For both of these "before pictures" scroll back to 
the last two posts.

Have a great week-end.

I know it's late but we lost power earlier in the evening after a storm ran thru.  Also lost most of a tree.  Clean-up will be be a bear.

Here's the up date on Liberty for all  which I started on July 4th.  (and the cover sheet)

It seems that I have missed some photos that I meant to show plus I haven't shown my annual patriotic stitching so here is a misc grouping of photos.

St Sylvestre
I have loved stitching on this..

This photo was actually taken a month ago.
I've stitched more on it and need a new photo.


SAL is coming up on Sunday.

I thought I posted an update photo last week and my surprise, it's not there.  So here is a delayed update on Klimt.

Another finish

I finished this piece a few days before Descending Order but since it wasn't part of the SAl, I waited until today to show it off.

St. Sylvestre and Descending Order are both Long Dog Samplers.  And except for the alphabet in Descending, both were a joy to stitch.  I have 3 that I am thinking of starting within the next week.  Stay tuned to see which one gets the nod.
