OK, I guess I am totally insane! You see, I am actually seriously considering starting Revelation by Heaven and Earth Designs - with its whopping size of something like 16" x 21.5" of over one stiching on 25 ct lugana! How many years will this take for me to stitch? Will I even live long enough, given that I do turn 42 tomorrow?? LOL! Yet, I think I will do this one! It arrived today along with The Master Plan, which I am absolutely also dying to do and is slightly less daunting (IMHO).... and I also received the chart for Celtic Autumn, the charm for Blue Moon Angel and the chart for Day Surrendering To Night in a package from one of my dearest friends - I do love her so! I have to stitch these, even though it will take me an entire lifetime!
...And, tonight's progress.... almost done with the skirt now!

I ordered up some various silks and beads I will need for the new Victoria Sampler sampler... Heirloom Homecoming... hmmmm, will have to find a pic to link that to - I want to do the rustic (reds) conversion :-)

Red Sox 6, Twins 2.... and for tonight, at least, Manny Ramirez is still with the Boston Red Sox... the team is "all the about the love" tonight, all supporting him, with the manager giving him a couple of days off.... geez. Let's see what tomorrow brings - my fear is they will trade away Bill Mueller :-( I don't think they need to trade anyone away, the team is already World Series caliber.

Stitched on today: Petal Fairy

Oooh Carol you have to do this peice! I love the Heaven and Earth designs. I only just discovered them in April when I was at Celebration of Needlwork. One day I'll get one of their pieces.

I love Day Surrendering To Night it's a beautiful piece. I've never seen it before.

I agree with you completely Carol on your first sentence of todays post! lol. One over one stitching? 26" by 21.5" !!! That has GOT to be impossible to ever finish! (Now there's a challenge he he he) The picture looks absolutely fab. I'd like to see a close up of it. I have to say tho, this is one that I wont be joining you in a SAL for :oD
