"A Quaker Christmas" is coming along nicely. I am working on the area where the pages overlap and should soon be finished with page 1 where it meets pages 2, 4 & 5. Since I'm using a overdyed thread I wanted to do the motifs that are on more than one page at one time so the flow of the color wouldn't be interrupted. Sorry for the colors in the picture not being true but it was night time when I took the pic so the light wasn't the best.
In my Hardanger class we are doing a SAL of Victoria Sampler's "Pansy Sampler". Most of us had set it aside over the holidays and decided to get back to work on it on Thursdays. I did have a bit of a problem finding mine as it had fallen behind my WIP basket. I found it on Friday and finished the Hardanger in Band 11. This week, on Thursday, I'll do the hearts and eyelets then on to the cutting.
Start and almost finish....

stitched on ? count White Linen with

I really needed a new start after working so long on just AQC and this filled the bill. All the stitching is done and later today I will attempt the finishing. I have never done one of these so will be a challenge to figure out the directions and getting it done. I think I need more coffee and maybe some chocolate before I attempt it.
Now I'm back to working on AQC and looking forward to getting some good progress in.
Until Next Time....Have a great week with lots of stitching time.
