Hi Blogger Friends,
As always thank you for the lovely comments on my last blog post.
As this week is a Week 5 it meant it was a non rotation week so I sort of stitched on what I felt like but did continue working on my Daily and Monthly projects. I did not however work on Save the Stitches this week. I will continue working on that every Thursday through March to bring my total to 10 Thursdays before I switch it out for another sampler for a few weeks.
Daily Project - Prairie Schooler Alphabet - Letter C
Last week I left this project here
Monthly Project - March Pin Cushion (Sheena Rogers/Cross Stitch Collection Magazine)
As it was the start of the month that means the start of another Pin Cushion, this is the 9th in the series of 12. Below is what it should look like
Janlynn Seasons Samplers - Spring
I have embarked on a new project series. 1st March saw the start of Spring well at least in terms of the weather I no official Spring is later in March but for the purposes of this project the 1st is an easier date to use. So my plan is to work on the Spring Sampler for 30 mins a day from 1st March to 31st May, then switch to Summer in June, Autumn in September and Winter in December. Lets see how far I can progress them.
Japanese Gold (Lesley Teare/Cross Stitch Collection Magazine Issue 234)
As I think I mentioned in a previous blog post I had the intention of finishing off this project in my rotation free week. Below is where I left it
Home Sweet Home (Riverdrift House/Cross Stitch Crazy)
As I finished Japanese Gold early on Sunday I had a little time to work on something else and now that Japanese Gold is complete I think Home Sweet Home will be my focus on a finish project, which I will work on when I have some spare time. I am hoping that come the end of March/early April this will also be completed.
Here's where I left it last week
Three Things Sampler (Bothy Threads)
On Monday I received this lovely kit from Polstitches. It is the Bothy Threads - Moira Blackburn designed sampler Three Things. I am stitching it on 32ct Tudor Rose Linen by Polstitches and like you do I started it. Below is what it should look like complete and my progress after 7and half hours over 4 days
I also got the final two kits in the Jayne Netley Mayhew/DMC series
So this coming week my plans are as follows :- to continue working on Prairie Schooler Alphabet - Letter C and with a little luck completing it, finish the stitching at least on my March Pin Cushion, work on Rotation 1 - Victorian Charm ( at least 12 hrs stitching) and spend Thursday working on Save the Stitches. If after that I do get any free time I will work on either Home Sweet Home or my variegated thread bookmark as the final Coloris thread arrived on Saturday.
So that's it for this week. I do have a little news I am going to a day
retreat in September in Cardiff hosted by Jo Critchley of Polstitches
with both Joan Elliott and Bothy Threads attending. I am very excited as
I have never been to a retreat and as it is only about an hour away
isn't too problematic for me.
Thank you for taking the time to read my ramblings
Bye for now
