Finally An Update

it's been so long since I updated my blog I almost forget how..... I have joined several Stitch Alongs and here are my latest updates to them.....

America Land That We Love.... this is an old design by Jean Farish..... the last time I worked on this was 2005..... I'm hoping to finish this up by the end of the year..... we are stitching on this every Wednesday..... here is my progress so far.....




Sampler au Bouquets..... this is a new design from Jardin Prive..... it is on a French website, which is a challenge for me, but it's fun.... it is being done in 12 parts -- one every 10 days..... I am stitching this one over one on 28 count evenweave..... this update is of the first 2 parts....


Autumn Forest Quaker..... this is a design by Martina Dey..... one page comes out each Friday..... we just got page 12..... I'm really enjoying this one with all the little creatures..... I am stitching this one over one also..... running out of wall space..... here is my progress thru page 11......


Tree of Stitches..... this is a design by Abi Gurden..... it is all done in speciality stitches..... the parts come out every 2 weeks..... I am using DMC Variations #4215 and the 4 DMC solid flosses that make it up -- 155, 156, 209, and 322..... the trunk is done with DMC Vairastions #4145.... here's my progress so far:


thanx for your time here and I'll be updating these SALs as they come out.....

What wonderful SALs you have Clare. It seems I remember the America one and may have that one. I am drawn to the one by Jardin Prive.
Beautiful Clare and thanks for sharing.
Jackie.
