Starting the Second Half...

Tonight I officially started the second half of And A Forest Grew :-) I didn't start at the very left edge - I started with my favorite tree instead. I love the momma bird feeding her babies :-)

Jo has received the birthday package that I sent off to her :-) I really admire the Medieval Herb Garden that Jo stitched a year (or two??) ago - I was stitching Liz Turner Diehl's 17th Century Irish Garden at the same time - Jo finished hers, I still have not finished mine... I know she likes Liz Turner Diehl a lot, so I have had this design tucked aside for a long time to stitch for her - I am so happy she likes it!!

You'd think I'd be used to it by now, but your stitching never fails to impress me ... yet another stunning giftie for Jo - you rock! :D

Barbara said...

It really is a stunning gift, Carol. I'm glad yours arrived on time ... mine apparently didn't. :(

Love the AAFG progress!!!

You continually amaze me Carol :) Another beautiful biscornu and AAFG looks simply incredible too :)

Annemarie said...

You know, you really make me laugh, you do. Every time you finish an extraordinarily beautiful gift (and they all are) you seem genuinely surprised the recipient actually LIKES it. You're funny.
Also, your forest? Gorgeous.

A beautiful gift yet again Carol. Congratulations on another wonderful finish.

Lovely progress pic!......and gorgeous biscornu! I wish I had 10 pairs of hands so I could stitch all the lovely biscornu I have in my head, using all the patterns I'm led to via the blogs, lol

Lovely work!

The biscornu is lovely, and I liked doing that tree on AAFG also. It is next up in my rotation and I am looking forward to it.

The new tree with the momma bird is sweet, and it must feel great to be started on the second half of this. Your Biscornu is lovely too, you always have such beautiful finishes.

BTW, mermaid showed up fine today so I could see the updated picture, she is so pretty.
