Martina Dey Quaker SAL at the Yahoo Group

On Monday I finished Martina Dey Quaker Sal at the Yahoo Group
It took 22 days and was stitched using 35 ct creme brulee and Legacy Blue.
It was nice to stitch a bunch of different motif that I haven't tried. The M
in the middle is for my dog whose name was McNugget. He passed away
July, 2007 and was almost 10 years old. Here is a picture of my finished piece
and of my dog.

Martina Dey SAL after 7 days

I finally got around to starting the Martina Dey SAL at the Yahoo group. This is a picture after 7 days of stitching. I'm using 35 creme brulee and Legacy Blue by VC silks. My goal for Friday is to have the missing items in the second row and finish the third row.

September and October Flip Its

It's almost halfway and I've completed most of my July Goals. The Lizzie Kate Flip-Its
Bits are perfect for this hot weather. They're quick, little counting and relaxing.

Thursday was a fun day. I went to the LNS to pick up the New Carriage House designs and purchased all 3. I was only going to get Elizabeth Minnich's Decorated Towel and Quaker House Sampler but couldn't resist Asenath Whitcomb. One of my favorite things to stitch are letters and this one is full of them. I've picked up the NPI threads and have
ordered the linen. First up is going to be the Quaker House Sampler. It looks like a quick
one. Here is the link to her new designs.

Tommorrow I'm going to start Martina Dey SAL. The start date was June 1st but my linen
was missing. I'm finally happy with 35 ct creme brulee by R&R and Legacy Blue by VC silks.
I hoping to catch up with everyone.
