Weekly Update

It was another busy week but I managed to make some progress on my projects. I worked on Rose Hill Plantation by Little House Needleworks and this is what I have so far. I'm stitching this on a piece of hand-dyed 14 count Aida I had in my stash. The fabric was a gift from my friend Jeanine and I've had it for almost 7 years. Guess it was time.
Last week I posted my WIPs and decided to tackle them one at a time until there are finished. Here is my progress on the Gameboard Sampler by Drawn Thread. As you can see I don't have much to go now. I realized when I took this photo that is project is almost 3 years old.
When I'm finished with Rose Hill Plantation I plan to start on a baby sampler for my grandson. I've chosen (with the help of my daughter in law Julie), A Child Is Born by My Big Toe Design.
On a personal note I was very saddened to learn of the passing of my best friend's mom. Esther and I have been friends since we were 16 and I spent lots of time at her house, so her mom was like a second mother to me. I'm so going to miss my dear mama Dolly.

Keep working on your Gameboard MIlly. I finished mine last year and just love to look at it. I put it in a large black glassed box and it is gorgeous! Some day it may have table legs. Great work. pj
