Mid March Madness Check In
I'm running late with my Theme-a-licous check this month as we've had a stomach bug in residence here but we're all getting over it now.
My plan for 'March Madness' is very simple - I want to work at least once on all of my wips this month. So far I'm on plan to achieve this goal as I have worked on half of them so far.
First up is A Stitch in Pine by Hillside Samplings, when I picked it up I got the border finished and started the inside border.
Next it was Rosie's Ornament Happy Winter by The Nutmeg Needle, I did some more of the back stitch outline of the snowman (previous progress here)
Then I pulled out a reproduction of a Scottish Sampler by Erica Uten that is in the Goodhart Sampler book by Needleprint. I started this in the class at Ackworth 2008 and it hasn't been out of the bag since. I got some more of the border done.
Another class piece that hasn't been out of it's bag in many years is Forget Me Nots in Stitches - Take a Lovely Sampler (I took the class in 2006!) I have started the border for the scissor fob.
There's been a bit more done on Just Nan's 20 Flowers, I'm working on the Hollyhocks on the front. Previous progress on here
The last photo for this update is another class wip from Ackworth 2008, a whitework sampler by Eva-Lotta Hansen. Another one that hasn't been out of the bag since, I stitched the A & O.
I have also worked on CA Wells Whitework Portfolio, however I made a counting error when I started and I need frog what I've done so there has been no point in taking a photo. I'm hoping that I can revisit this one this month.
