Weekend Update

All those little Easter finishes really worked at getting me in the mood to get back to my 3 WIP's.

Home is a little over half done now. I think I'll probably continue to work on it until finished so I can take it to the framer when I go to the LNS next week.


After finishing page 2 of "AQC" I decided to go back to the left side and get the bottom done before moving on to page 3. Page 4 is a little over half done and most of the motifs left run on to page 5. I have become totally hooked on Quaker designs and think I'll have to get the Quaker Halloween to do soon.


"Spring Crazy - Happy Easter" by Lizzie Kate
Stitched on 28 ct Opalescent Lugana "Precious Metals" by Silkweaver
with Various Overdyed threads
This is the last of the Easter stitching for now. It was so much fun to do and I had a great time going through all my threads, picking colors for it. I plan on a really fun finish but won't be able to share that until it arrives at it's new home.
Nothing else new here. You can tell Spring is coming since we are getting sunny skies with lots of wind. Since I lost so much weight Tracy said he was going to have to put bricks in my pockets so I don't get blown away.
Until Next Time....Have a great week with lots of stitching time.

Your really making progress on your AQC, I really think I'm going to try and stitch this one. "Home" is one that I really wanted to make, guess I'll put that on my list as well. I just love your stitching.

These bigger ones are looking great too! Any work on the eagle?? I had to ask Meari about Japanese Garden, so I had to ask about your long standing WIP too! Love the Easter LK piece too.

Very cute Easter finish!

Quarker and home are looking great.

Ohh... if you start Halloween Quaker I will be so tempted to pick up mine. Your Xmas one was actually what really inspired me to get the Halloween one! :)
