Stitching update...

Flying on the buzz of my last finish, I decided to tackle another long neglected piece that I started back in November of 2010. This is The Family Sampler by Little House Needleworks which I am stitching on 28 ct potato lugana using the floss recommended by the designer.

Progress as November, 2010
Progress as of April 22, 2011

I also started a new project, Time for God by Lizzie Kate. This will be a nice break between the larger piece and a great gift for my mother, who I hope to see in September when I attend my niece's wedding in Ohio.

Happy birthday Sis

Happy birthday to my sister Luz who today turns 53 years young. Love you girl!

Stitching progress...

This past week I worked on the baby sampler for my grandson and I'm quite happy with the progress I'ved made. If I can keep up this pace I should be able to have it completed and ready for framing before the end of the month. This is what I have as of today:

I don't have any pictures of my stitching to share since all my efforts were concentrated on a new model for CCN. It was such a fun piece that once I started it I couldn't put it down and finished it in no time.

This week I am back to working on the baby sampler for my grandson. I must finish this before I leave for San Antonio next month to celebrate his first birthday. Will post pictures of my progress soon.
