Mid Week Update

It's been a good week of stitching. We had a couple of days of rain while the East was dealing with the snow. I'm one of those rare people who love the rain and always manage to get lots done during the rain.

"AQC"
I'm still working on Page 2 but to the point where the motifs go over to the adjoining pages. Someone asked how many pages there are in the pattern. There are 6 pages but 3 of those are only half a page. I really wanted to have this done by June but not sure I'll make that deadline.

"Home of a Needleworker"
I really enjoy stitching this design, it's a nice break for the eyes from "AQC". I want to do the next line of words and thread spool then I'll move over to the left and do the rest of the top border and the house.
I do have another start but not enough done on it to share yet. It's being done 1 over 1 on 32 count linen. It really gives my old eyes a workout so can't do much on it at a time.

February Seasonal Shelf
I haven't shared the seasonal shelf for a while so thought you might like to see it for February. I just love my Valentine Froggies so had to use them on the shelf this year.


I'll leave you now with a picture of my sweet Maddie. Yes those are two teeth you see and she finally has enough hair for a bow.
Until Next Time.....Happy Stitching

Your seasonal shelf is very colorful this month. "Home of a Needleworker" is turning out nicely. And Maddie is as cute as ever.

Maddie is growing so very fast! She is beautiful. Your AQC is just beautiful as well as the "Home of a Needleworker". I love watching these come to life. Great job on the seasonal shelf.

AQC is coming a long. I enjoy watching this grow! I can see that "Home of a Needleworker" would be a nice break from the bigger project. You always seem to have a good sense of rotation with your projects as you get them all done. Good job.
Take care and stay dry. Looks like there is more on the way.

2 teeth already! She's not wasting any time. Neither did Connor, he started breaking teeth at 4 months. Your seasonal shelf looks awesome. AQC is very pretty. I could see many of those motifs being gorgeous ornies. Home is coming along nice. This one is going on my wish list.

Maddie is growing and is such a cutie! Love the seasonal shelf. You'll have AQC finished before June, I do believe. And all the stitching looks great!

Wow! I can't believe that Maddie is almost 1 already - how is that possible? I'm not a year older than when she was born!

And I just recently saw Home of a Needleworker finished into a pillow - it was gorgeous!

And...I love your AQC. Ah...my wish list grows and grows!

I am ready to start Home of a Needleworker, Too (just finishing a couple of small projects first). I look forward to following your progress (and for any tips for stitching this piece).

Nice progress on both pieces! It's so fun to compare GD's!!! Amberlyn still just has one tooth and never shows it!! LOL
