Weekly Paradigm Lost Update

It's Tuesday again, so back to the Paradigm Lost SAL. 4.5 hours of stitching and just managed to finish that good sized motif. I fear I just cannot keep up with my SAL-mate, though. I don't know how she fits so much stitching in on a Tuesday evening. Oh well, here is mine. I am on to skein #3 of silk floss already. I wonder how many it will take to finish the whole sampler. I think I bought either 15 or 20 skeins... hmmm....


I received this lovely gift from Barbara today! Thank you Barbara, you shouldn't have! She got me Chessie & Me's 1890 House Sampler which I had on my Wish List! Aw, you are so sweet - I just love it! It is so New England! I look forward to stitching this one :-)

PL sounds like a lot of work (and silk!), but it's gorgeous, girl! That's a lovely chart you got from Barbara. She's such a sweetie.

Barbara said...

Whew, I'm so relieved it arrived! That one did not exactly speed its way through the post and I was worrying it had gotten lost!

Your WIP is fabulous. I love this design!

Great progress, Carol! It's looking beautiful. The gift you received is lovely too. And I love your flower, as always.

I can't believe how fast you are moving along on PL. It is so pretty and elegant. Is the silk your using variegated or solid in color? I can't quite tell by the pics. Beautiful stitching as always.

I think you have well and truly caught up with me. I wasn't feeling well last night and didn't get much done at all! My stitching rate seems to be all over the place and last weeks effort was probably a major aberration! Love the gift you received from Barbara!

Carol, we missed you last night at the stitch-in at CN. Maybe you can come to the one in October? We still need to plan a saturday stitch-in.

PL looks awesome. That circular motif in the middle is stunning. I love it. And isn't Chessie & Me great! I love their designs. Ann.

Paradigm is looking really great. And I think that keeping up with Jo is next to impossible. No one stitches faster than she!

Hi Carol

Thanks ever so much for dropping by to my blog and leaving your lovely comment. I can't understand why I've not come across your blog until now, but I have bookmarked it :)) You've got some fab stuff on here - talk about eye candy!!

Yes I can't wait to stitch 'Phoenix' either - there will be plenty of piccies on my blog when I do. Have a great week and thanks again :)
