An Open Heart

I completed Area 1 of An Open Heart today. This is a SAL I am in with two other ladies.... my motivation on this one is a bit low. I love the piece, so I plan to stick with it. It has just been hard to find time in my rotation for it. I am saddened that I feel as if I am stitching this one by myself. I have no word or updates from the other two stitchers. Are they still stitching? Did they quit? I just don't know. I know one has been in the process of moving. She had started this piece some time back and is already near the midway point anyhow. The other lady, I have not heard from since the first stitchin night, back on 9/19/05... oh well, I will just plug along at my own rate, I guess. I really miss Karen V., who closed her blog earlier this month. She has been working on this same lovely sampler, and I was hoping her progress would keep me inspired too..

And then Girl with Cat finally resurfaced for a little while before bed tonight - I again really enjoyed working on this one... just wish I could find it a more regular slot in my rotation....

The rain is gone, and now the winds are here. Strong winds. I had to run out and do errands. Mike is still struggling with health issues. While I was out I picked up Kicking & Screaming because I have not seen a Will Ferrell movie that I didn't like. It's been an otherwise dull and disappointing day, so maybe I will see if I can watch that tonight....

Well, the Angels are done, and the White Sox are going to the World Series. Oh well.

Stitched on today: An Open Heart and Girl with Cat

Carol,

They are both looking great. The girl with a cat looks difficult, all those similar colours!

Cheers,
Laren

Excellent progress, once again. You seem a little down. :( Not to worry, mail comes today and that means some stash will arrive to cheer you right up. ;)

Carol, keep going with that heart one, it's amazing. You do have some wonderful projects on the go, I love looking at them all.

You sound sad Carol! I hope today is a better day for you :)
I'd join in with you with Open Heart, if I had the chart or floss! It's always been a favourite, but has to wait until I can afford it ... it's not like I don't have enough to stitch LOL
Keep smiling :)

Your pieces are looking wonderful. I just ordered my first Drawn Thread piece recently. I am looking forward to getting it.

Thanks also for Earth Angel, it arrived safely today. I should be able to get Celtic Angel in the mail tomorrow:)

Hi Carol - you don't know me but I sometimes poke my head in at the Chatelaine BB (known as Mel in Australia but I live in Dubai now :) I'm stitching MTM and EG.
I've just ordered DT's Open Heart - I'll stitch it along with you when it gets here. I'd love to join the Mermaids of the Deep SAL next year too :)
