Women of the Mayflower is Finished

I managed to get the final stitches in at work today, so may I present:

Women of the Mayflower

Sarah Ullman, Olde Willow Designs

Silkweaver 36 ct Edinburgh Solo

Olde Willow Stitchery Hand-Dyed Threads

Stitched 5/26/06 - 12/05/06

Here is this week's update on Paradigm Lost. It took about 3.5 hours just to do this bit more of the next large motif... it's a slow one, that's for sure!! (OK, I was a little distracted by checking in on several news reports from the Red Sox at Winter Meetings - two big moves tonight!). Anyhow, to non-sports fans, this was simply Paradigm Lost SAL night :-) I hope it moves faster next week.

And, the other little gift that I sent off that arrived yesterday was for Amy :-) As a child and family psychotherapist, I have the mentality of an elementary school teacher. I just adore children, and I was so tickled when an 8 year old stitcher joined our blogging world! I had to send her a treat!!! There are way better photos of this fob in Amy's bog!

Wow, Carol! A big happy dance for Women of the Mayflower. Yay! It looks wonderful. Time to frame it next, right? :)

PL is looking gorgeous, as always, even if it feels to you like your progress is slow on those killer big motifs.

And what a lovely gift for you to send to a new stitcher! I hope that she is inspired to stitch for decades to come.

You are a real dear, if there were as many sweet people in this world as your kind heart, wouldn't it be a better place! (that's not a question...it's a statement!)
