I got home a bit early today and found myself with a little extra stitching time. Therefore, before I started my SAL project for the night I put in a couple of hours on Medieval Town Mandala first. Not a ton of progress - but there is now some more blue and some more gold in the first corner... every little bit of extra time on this one will surely help this month. I remember when Martina gave us a huge chunk, around the fourth or fifth month, on Mystery VI back in 2004.... it took forever to complete - that one called for tons of black Marlitt, though. At least this time the huge part is turquoise silks and gold :-)
And then, on to Garden Spot Sampler, my Tuesday night SAL with Jo. I spent the rest of the evening working on the peachy colored coneflower on the right side... I had made a bit better progress, but around 10 PM realized I had to frog out a miscounted area.... it is slow going with that one because that flower is done with the one shade that is variegated.... but so pretty. I hope Jo is having fun with hers tonight too - we are really making some progress now.
I am going to stitch Papillon Creations' Mystery Sampler, which is in the new online stitching magazine, The Gift of Stitching. I have my silk pack on order with Vikki Clayton for it. It looks like fun - is anyone else interested in doing it? If you are and have not already subscribed to the beautiful online magazine, there is a link in my sidebar that you can use - or you can subscribe through links other bloggers are posting in their blogs as well, of course! This is a wonderful magazine - I hope some of you will want to stitch the Mystery Sampler too :-)
Big DVD day for us today - a trifecta - of course, it was New DVD Release Tuesday - we got Doom (totally a Mike movie - he is even watching it now - he used to play the game when it came out for PC years ago), Just Like Heaven and Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit (just love these guys!!)
