My Latest Updates

Last week was pretty hectic and crazy so I was lucky to get anything stitched at all! In between laundry and other chores, I managed to do a little.

Here's my latest update of BoInk. Next weekend I'll probably do the outline for the knot on the other side and hopefully fill both sides in with the green. Wow, that sounds like a lofty goal! Well, I'm going to try.

This is Croakworth. I really love this piece. I never realized that quaker type design were so much fun.

June Progress

I LOVE this project!! It's going to have all the things that I love on it. Frogs, turtles, waterlilies, and dragonflies!

Here is latest progress on BoInk. After I finish the right corner block, I need to work some more of the border. I work on this every Sunday and I seem to be getting a lot accomplished that way. I think I need to assign a project to each day of the week and actually get a lot done on them as well.

My Open Theme Round Robin Has Come Home

Here it is!! Of course, the theme I chose was frogs. ;) I'm planning to fill in any empty blocks and I have a cute little froggy border to add as well. I have to say that it turned out alot better than I could have imagined. I am so happy with it!! Believe me, it looks so much better in real life. The fabric is Ocean Dreams Mystique on 28 ct. Jobelan from Enchanted Fabrics. You can't really see the true fabric color from this photo but it is really pretty.

May's Progress

Yes, I have started a new project! This is Dragonfly Sampler designed by Wendy Mosbacher. It came from the August 2005 issue of Just Cross Stitch magazine. I am stitching it on Glass Blue Monaco. This is the reason I don't have any progress pics of BoInk to share. I just couldn't put this down!

This is my latest progress on "Life Is Good." I love how much it looks like some of my dogs that I have owned over the years.
