 Amy of Thread in Hand has died and her obit, written by her son, can be found here.

Her husband was kind enough to think of the stitchers who followed her blog to notify us via the blog.

Bermuda Reef

 Bermuda Reef is a canvas class I am taking from Kathy Rees.  As usual, I love the piece (as I do most of Kathy's pieces, especially the classes).

Here is my progress so far:

As usual (and not intentionally) 
I just kept on going after the first lesson
the top medium triangle was the first lesson.

I really like how it is coming along.
Usually I don't pay much attention to my backs
but I thought that this looked pretty good.

Sorry for all the shadows showing up.

In the non-stitching area of life
My trip to Washington DC was great.
though I nearly froze to death.
I had accidently packed a pair of warm tight instead of stockings
I was so glad.  Though I didn't take any really casual shoes
I took a pair of winter socks which I ended up wearing to bed.
I was really tired by the end of the week and glad to be back home again.

I still need a vacation
the kind without any work.

 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.
