Image hosted by Photobucket.comHere is a little bit of work on 17th Century Irish Garden for tonight - I started the Greek cross stitches in the rectangular garden at the top, decided I hated LTD's stitch diagrams, and pulled them out - will either search for better diagrams or rework them in another fashion (already have the idea of what I want to do....)....

Image hosted by Photobucket.comWhile visiting Picture This Plus to do a favor ordering a chart for a friend out of the States, I came across this DaVinci belfast and ordered up a fat quarter right away (but ugh, they had a significant price increase a couple of days ago....sigh....I still bought it...). It really caught my eye, and I have to wait to see the fabric, but am thinking that maybe Enchanted Mermaid will work well on it... have to see the colors in real life first :-) Still love this fabric though!

I received my July 2005 issue of Stitcher's World today - but it is not the issue with the Maria van Scharrenburg design in it.... that was the May issue... somehow that never arrived here. I emailed them... I hope they will send it to me. Otherwise, I will run out to Ben Franklin in Raymond, NH (the one not closing right now) and pick up the copy.....

Karen V. asked today when a progress pic of Peacock Cypher would be posted. Well, although I get some time each workday to stitch on it, sometimes it is only a couple of stitches :-) So, I was thinking I would post one when I finish the second section... which is a little bit away still. But, I did set a goal to finish this sampler this month, so I will do my best to get moving on it - and post a progress picture too :-)

Red Sox 5, Tigers 3, thanks to a Grand Slam by Doug Mirabelli!!!! Woo Hoo!

I am really excited about this: National Treasure was released on DVD today, and mine is waiting for me here.... but the game ran too late to watch it tonight :-(

Wow the blue in the 17th Century Irish Garden is really amazing, i can't wait to see what you do for the Greek stitches as I can't tell from the picture online what they are supposed to look like.

Hi Carol!
Yes, I stitched my PR, but I have not posted the progress yet...

Hi Carol!
I'm loving your Irish Garden! WOW, it's going to be awesome!

Hubby is anxious to see National Treasure as well, as he is a Knight's Templar.

Have a great day :)

Hi Carol,

Nice to see you at Celebrations, I am in awe of your sttiching ! I have to stop collecting and start stitching.Your 17th Century Irish Garden is really nice, what fabric are you using, you have inspired me to start one of her Gardens! Are you stitching with the required threads, or dmc? How about those Yankees ! It is a hoot to see them doing so poorly! Carol

Your irish garden is looking good. Looks very hard! I'm interested to see what you decide to put in the rectangle.
