For Anne...

I had originally planned to start Part 11 of Mystery IX tonight, but I ended up working late to see a young girl I've been treating for a while now, who is really struggling right now. So, instead of dragging M9 out when I was ready to finally stitch, I decided it was time to stop being such a lousy SAL mate for Anne - I dug out Bordeaux Sampler (which was a trick - for a few minutes, I had forgotten where it was!) and got right back into it. Yay, I am glad I did. Other than the tedious one over one on 40 ct for the grape clusters, it is a fun stitch! I have decided that having it as an "at work" stitching project was why this was not working out for me. Right now, Women of the Mayflower is great as my "at work" project, so I am rotating Bordeaux Sampler back in for at home... so maybe this SAL can pick up some steam again? This sampler is soooo delicate, I love it - and it makes me feel so good!

Q. How did you decide on the title of your stitching blog? Was it random, or does it have a special meaning to you or about you?

A. You know, I cannot even remember what my blog's original title was!! Seriously.... no clue! I changed it after a few months to reflect my equally combined interests in stitching and gardening.

I have received several emails asking if I have anymore fabrics to sell.... yes, I do. To respond to some requests, I will post some more over the weekend, so if you are interested, keep an eye out.

Stitched on today: Women of the Mayflower and Bordeaux Sampler

Funnily enough, I felt the same way the last time I picked up Bordeaux after a big break ... I didn't want to put it down again ;) Can't say I'm a huge fan of the over-one grape clusters either, but it's a nice relaxing stitch when you get into the rhythm. I was bad this week, though, and haven't done any more progress :( Yours is looking great :D

The Bordeaux Sampler looks good so far. The detail is awesome. Maybe after the tedious part, you will enjoy stitching on this masterpiece!

Whatever you title your blog, I enjoy seeing your progress pictures & flowers in bloom. It is very cheerful & inspiring.
