A little winter gardening

This was a pleasant break from Medieval Town Mandala tonight. It is only a one night break, but I was glad for it. Here is this week's installment of the Garden Spot Sampler SAL with Jo.

There were a couple of comments in my blog yesterday about the RR I am in. I figured one of the best ways to answer some of the questions is to show you the blog we are using for our group: Our Neighborhood of Make Believe. To answer specific questions, everyone in this group (there are 8 of us) is doing a neighborhood theme. Each of us has narrowed down that theme a little bit... for instance, I want houses with gardens and at least one cat... another stitcher wants Victorians with a beach theme... another wants a more primitive style neighborhood. We do not have to stitch the same house on each project as it arrives. I doubt any of us could do that :-) Everyone is using a different layout too... stay posted, I will be posting progress on each as they come in, but beware - this group will take two years to complete LOL!

Nancy, the Autumn Fields belfast I am using is a Zweigart fabric. You can find it on the Silkweaver site under "standard fabrics."

My Silkweaver Sandcastle belfast came in today for the Papillon Creations Mystery Sampler in The Gift of Stitching! Yay! I am going to go get my silks, needle and a project pack so I can start that at work tomorrow!!

Stitched on today: Garden Spot Sampler

My dear Carol,
God gave you strong eyes! Love the sampler-is that on linen?
I smile when I go to the Neighborhood blog as I see my whole name in the list because of you. ; )

Carol, thank you for answering all my questions! I went to the blog and the projects look amazing. I can't wait to see how they all look when they are finished. The Garden Spot Sampler is coming along. Could this be the second happy dance of the year? Have a great day!

Wow, Garden Spot is getting so huge! How do you manage that large of a Q-snap?

Shelleen said...

Your Garden Spot Sampler is going great. You will be finished fast (at leats it looks like that.

I was going to ask the same question as Jenna, how do you handle the large q-snaps!! I can manage some of the longer scroll bars, but will keep them on a narrow frame; or I like about a 6" q-snap or hoop.

That is a very pretty sampler - love all those motifs. :)

Super progress this time around. I love the bigger flower on the right side of the piece.
