Weekly Kingdom Sampler Update

Here is this week's update on Kingdom Sampler. I think Nikki and I are both enjoying this one a lot. I had an early day out of work today, so after doing a few things at home, I managed to get a bit of an early start on Kingdom Sampler tonight, in hopes of catching up on Nikki's huge progress last week - LOL. Don't know if I accomplished that, but here it is! Sorry it is a bit askew in the photo. I guess I didn't smooth it out properly when I put it down to photograph it. I am stitching this one in hand, so it is quite wrinkly on the left side. The way I laid it down makes it looks like the castle in crooked. It's not :-)

Boy, is it hot here :-) You do not hear me complaining, I love it! We are in a bit of a heat wave. Tomorrow there are severe thunderstorms forecasted for the afternoon. That part is surely not fun, but it's part of having the great summer we are having... so... OK... we will live with it. If enough clients cancel, I can come home early - Jo and I have a new SAL starting tomorrow night anyhow, Paradigm Lost by Long Dog Samplers. Yay - we have been planning this one for about a year now!!

I had forgotten on Friday, but I picked up some DVDs on a trip to Best Buy with Mike... I like to blog them here so that when I get around to updating my DVD Database, I can go back in my blog to get the titles - LOL! So... for my own information, I got The Matador and Hoodwinked :-)

Stitched on today: Blessings Be Thine at work, and Kingdom Sampler

You are making speedy progress on Kingdom Sampler! It looks like a really enjoyable stitch.

Gosh this is stitching up quick isn't it and it looks lovely.

Sue said...

Wow, I can't believe how fast you are moving on this piece. Between you and Ann I'm feeling like such a poke. Of course, neither of you have kids so you aren't busy with that aspect of life (ok, now I've vindicated myself).

You definitely surpassed me :) I did get most of the stitching in the dragon finished last night which is what I was hoping for so I'm happy. I'm kind of dreading that one huge cloud, that might take me forever!

This is looking great. I can't wait to see your start on Paradigm Lost - maybe it will motivate me to start on Mouline Rouge!

Barbara said...

Paradigm Lost?! Oh, I can't wait to see what you do with it!

You already hinted that you actually *like* this weather, so I'm very happy for you, but for my part, I'm very happy that autumn is on its way (that's my way of dragging my melting bones through the hot summer days. Sorry if that depresses you).
Your Kingdom Sampler is looking good. Am I mistaken or is this one not very far from being finished?

Mary said...

I really enjoy watching your pieces come to life. I love the Kingdom Sampler and everything else you are stitching. I need to get organized so I can stitch a bit a night. I can't wait for your next update.

Your Kingdom Sampler is growing by leaps and bounds, Carol! I hope you're having as much fun stitching it as we are watching it. ;)
