posting some pictures..

 before i start my post about my pics.. some of you make me laugh..
my list is totally unobtainable .. i know that..
i make the lists to stop myself from starting things…
and so if i do start something i do not make a rash decision.. well too rash a decision.

i know i will never sttich a 100th of what i want to…
oh and GO SAINTS!!!!
normal transmission will start now!

Some more pictures for you, not that they show much progress..
i have been pottering a bit this week i must admit
anyway here is Maggie, with a bit more hair/background/shoulder/chin done
just to rfresh peoples memories, she is done on 28 ct jobelan 1×1


next is the playing i have been doing with the Attar of Roses silks from hdf, there are actually 8 in the range and i will use all 8 in the quaker sal sampler from Martina Dey, obviously i am not sal’ing this one as well as tranq , i would have a melt down.. but here is my meagre effort so far,


it is stitched 1×1 on 36 ct magnolia linen

next up is Tranquillity Sampler..

i whizzed through it this week, had it done in time to get a few hours of Aredhel done tonight ( saturday night)
i add in more of the yummy heartbreak blue, and also went with a really pale one for a bit of a change, using the Nile Blue 2419 , next weeks page is the short page to finish the row..


 HERE is the link if you want to see the big image

i am off tomorrow to see my mum and hear about her adventures in fiji and collect my haighs stash from her.. and take the boys for a picnic, if it does not rain…

  3. Maggie, sweet Maggie! How cute you are!!

    Your sampler is looking gorgeous!!

    Attar of Roses would look nice on AMAP8… *looks innocent and backs out quietly*

    Maggie! (swoons, there is the sound of a thud and then silence)

  5. 1 over 1 on 36 ct. I’m impressed. I love the look of magnolia. But you know how I feel about that fab. *grin* We have a good relationship. lol. All your stitching is awsome as always. I adore maggie. (((hugs))) Nance

  6. Maggie! so much beautiful stitching… you haev been busy 😀

  7. Maggie is gorgeous! I’ve obviously not been keeping up because this is the first pic I have seen with two eyes. Very pretty.

    The alter of roses series looks great, especially the darker ones (of course, as they are less pink 😉 ) but I still think you are insane for stitching over one on 36ct 🙂
