Hello again friends,

I rushed home tonight to bring you this WIP update.  Sorry the pictures aren’t the greatest – I had to use my flash, most of the natural light had already departed.  My small red friend intervened halfway through the process (as you will see).

WIP Spring Sampler

Spring Sampler - LHN

First up is Little House Needlework’s Spring Sampler (one of the Silk Collaboration packs with Crescent Colors) I’m stitching this one on “Vintage” Cashel Linen. This is the first new start I have made since moving to the new house.

WIP Countdown to Christmas

Countdown to Christmas - Blue Ribbon Designs

And here’s Countdown to Christmas by Blue Ribbon Designs. I stitched a bit on this whilst I was away with my stitching girlfriends for the weekend in the Wheatbelt town of Dowerin.

WIP Mary Thompson

Mary Thompson's Quaker Sampler

Mary Thompson also had some time out of the WIP basket whilst I visited with my stitching friends. I really should work on her more, there is only one more page of my photocopy to go (the chart is from Quaker School Girl Samplers – inside the dust jacket, I made a working copy so I don’t damage the cover).

WIP Beware of CAT

Beware of Cat - Lizzie Kate

Also receiving some attention in Dowerin was Lizzie Kate’s Beware of Cat (which I had to add “the” to in my stitched version – it bothered me). Another close to finish there…

Felix again

Felix put's his paw down.

At this point, Felix put his paw down and insisted a real (and very handsome) cat appear in this blog WIP parade.

WIP Quaker Garden

Quaker Garden - Blackbird Designs

Having given the little man some loving, I was allowed to proceed with the WIP parade. Here’s Blackbird Designs Quaker Garden – I started this one a little while ago but stopped when we started packing up for the move.

WIP Cowboy dreams

Cowboy Dreams - Country Cottage Needleworks

This piece I started as a birthday pressie for my Dad’s 60th. Sadly, I stalled on this one too. It’s also stitched on Vintage Cashel.

WIP Spot sampler mystery

Purple Spot Sampler Mystery

And here’s the Spot Sampler Mystery Sampler by Stickideen Von der Wiehenburg. I’m using a variety of HDF silks for this piece. I just love this one.

WIP - Shores of HRH

Carriage House Samplings - The Shores of Hawk Run Hollow

And last but not least, here’s my rather pathetic start on block number three for Shores of Hawk Run Hollow by Carriage House Samplings. This is another stalled piece for me. But pulling it out of my basket made me want to get back to work on it again!

So, that’s what’s in my workbasket! Writing this post makes me want to get back to my stitching chair!  So till next time, I wish you many happy stitches.
