Stitching Update

This is has been a slow week for stitching. with a new start and a little progress on a WIP so this will be a short update.

New Start....

"Home of a Needleworker (too)" by Little House Needleworks
After my trip to the LNS on Monday where I got the threads for this (and a couple of other projects) I just had to start it. I did a floss toss on a couple of pieces of fabric and this was the winner. It's a 28 count Bone Jobelan being stitched with the Crescent Colours called for on the chart. It was a nice change to be working on a larger count, much easier on the eyes.
WIP....


"A Quaker Christmas" 2-4
Last night I went back to working on "AQC". Still on page 2 and will be for a while. There are a couple of small motifs yet to do but most of the remainder of this page are larger motifs that run over into the joining pages. I'll probably continue on with this until the first of next week when I'll go back to Needleworker or maybe start another of my new charts (maybe a small one I can finish quickly).
Said this was going to be a short update so I'll get back to stitching
Until Next Time....Happy Stitching

What a nifty little start for you - I understand the need to see something finish. How many pages are there to A Quaker Christmas?

One of these days I'll be able to start my Quaker Halloween(I hope)
Have a great day
