The week has been spend with a heavy work load (but fit into 8 hour days) and a bit of stitching and knitting. I completed chart 3 of Quakers and Quilts. I really haven't felt like starting another stitching project. I wonder if I'm going to be a monogamous stitcher? Somehow I think I probably won't be!
No knitting pictures to show. I'm knitting a project that is just going on forever. It's lace and black so it doesn't lend itself to much in the way of in progress photos. I am taking a sweater class at the end of the month (top down raglan based on my generous measurements) and I hope it fits!

Happy Stitches!

I love your stitchery.....I had to give up counted cross-stitch, which I very much enjoyed, because I was having trouble seeing it.......not fun getting old and having your "parts" wear out on you!!! LOL

Sorry to hear about the heavy work load week. You're probably exhausted. I love how the quaker piece is coming along. I can see why you haven't gone on to something different - it's looking wonderful. Sometimes a project just calls our name and that's what we have to keep working on.

Barb said...

Oh my, this is so beautiful! Nah, stitching monogamy is not for me, lol.

Nancy said...

Your sampler is just gorgeous! I like your choice of fabric for this Jackie. The colors really seem to stand out. Beautiful job!

Carol said...

Jackie--it is looking so great! I was always a one-project-at-a-time stitcher until this year. I'll have to admit I am enjoying the rotation system quite a bit. But, you're breaking up your cross stitching with quilting, applique, etc. so you have plenty of variety already :)

So exciting to see your how far you have gotten. It will be a lovely addition to your new sewing room.

imquilternity said...

It's beautiful. Such patience you have! I would never finish something like that...espcially if I had knitting or quilting around to distract me!

Brigitte said...

Very nice progress on this lovely piece. I'm not a monogamous stitcher either but soemtimes there's a project that I just can't put down, like the one I'm stitching on right now, my Moira Blackburn piece.

Your stitching is looking great!

Suzanne said...

This is such a lovely design. Are you stitching with the Valdani threads?

Siobhan said...

Woohoo, Jackie! Your stitching project is coming along nicely. Remember, Market pictures will be showing up any time now--monogamy might be very short lived. ;)
