A sampling of my designs as well as personal stitching, and life in general.

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.

This is slightly late because we spent the day with family to celebrate Father's Day.  Hope you had a great one.

My SAL  project is done.  Descending Order is finished!!!!!

The last row contains initials.
They are on top of each other and it is the person's first name initial
and their maiden name initial.

At last it s complete!

Next up is Klimt

This is what it will look like

and this is what it look like already

A long ways to go!

Here is the group.
please check everyone one out.

Lately I seem to be more and more behind.  Here's some updated photos.

  Progress on the June portion of the 
2020 Mystery Sampler

Progress on Acorns
ready to start more one over one

And a little more on St. Sylvestre
The decision now is to add beads  or not.
To the right of this block, in the middle is a small rectangle
I am thinking of adding 1-2 beads there (and every corner)
The block above the corner has an open rectangle as well
2-3 beads there (it is larger)
Beads are black
comments are welcome as to bead or to not bead.

Now I need to go stitch.
