Saturday Stitchy Updates

At last here I am with the promised updates of my stitching this week:) I had planned to do an update yesterday but it ended up a busy day so I didn't get much time on the PC.

As always Monday evening is Bygone Stitches A Quaker Christmas which I absolutely love stitching on:) I always seem to make good progress on this obviously because I love it so much! I am hoping to have it on the wall for Christmas so I need to stitch on! Lol! I do love this red thread and would definitely use it again.

Tuesday night I decided to join in the Tiny Treasures SAL on the HAED forum so that I can make weekly progress on my letter J for Jess. Which reminds me I must post my progress on there too although I rarely post or go on the forum these days. I am happy with the progress I made just for one night:)

Wednesday night was SAL night with Karen on Ink Circles Sea Stars but not a lot of progress was made due to having visitors so just one small motif done for me this week!

Yuko and Ruth have signed up for my PIF so I am really pleased:) Can you both please email me ( email is in my profile) your addresses. I still have one place left so please do sign up:) I love making stitchy pieces for people.

Thursday evening I made a start on Lisa's RR. It is a lovely piece and the colour Lisa has chosen is gorgeous.

Yesterday I received the latest Blackbird Designs Loose Feathers chart with fabric. This one is called Blessings and Kind Wishes and it is gorgeous; my favourite one so far. It also has the first two parts of the mystery sampler. These are stitched on seperate pieces of fabric then stitched together. Anyone know what the idea of that is??? I know they can all be stitched on one piece of fabric so I may well do them that way. I haven't even started the LF 30 yet and I had planned to have each one stitched before the next one arrived! Lol!

That's all from me today. Thank you for all your lovely comments on my pinkeep with pocket for Andrea:)

Hugs

All your WIPs look wonderful Sally! Quaker Christmas is so pretty and I love your HAED start.

I think the idea behind the BD Mystery Sampler is similar to their Flea Market Souvenir, which is stitched on separate pieces of fabric. I'm going to do mine on one piece, haven't quite decided what colour yet though.
