Finally... a new update for the Forest


Finally, I have finished the tree to the right of the big tree - lots of starting and stopping on those leaves :-) I am well into Section 12 now, and just peeked and saw there are only 14 sections in total. Wow, I am really near the end. Only a couple of medium/big trees left now.

I am keeping this short. My right hand is so cramped up. Typing is uncomfortable. I think this is from doing so much paperwork at the office lately ;-)

Thank you Becky and Vonna for the lovely email chats today. You two are such good friends and you are both very REAL, which I just love!

Stitched on today: Fair & Square blocks, and And A Forest Grew

It doesn't sound much when you say just two sections left. There's still a pretty big space to fill though isn't there. This piece looks like it's huge. Is it? I know sometimes sizes can look pretty deceptive on photo's.

You're doing an amazing job on the forest Carol - I love it!

Hope your hand feels better soon.

Barbara said...

Beautiful progress, Carol! You take care of that hand!!

I've been following your stitching blog for quite a while now (as you may have noticed), but I still can't understand how you seem to breeze through these enormous designs! You make AAFG look like a doddle, and something tells me that it isn't :o)

and A Forest Grew looks great. I love the scissor fobs that you received.

Jenn said...

Glad to see this one back. I hope your hand is better soon.

Carla said...

Great progress! Well done

Kathy A. said...

Nice work Carol. Another big finish is in your near future! Take care of that hand - you need 2 good hands to stitch.

Karoline said...

Your forest is looking gorgeous, great progress

Vonna said...

Whoa! Not long now!! It's stunning Carol...simply stunning :)
And I am more than happy to be a e-mail serial chatter with you! LOL!

So how was that iced coffee?!

Von said...

Oh, Carol, give your hand a good soak and a rest! We can't have you in pain and cutting back on your stitching - work, sure, but not your stitching, lol!

I'm beginning to feel the onset of arthritis, I think, in my body so I have great sympathy for such pains. Guess I should get to a doc to be sure, but arthr plagues my family something awful and I doubt I'll get away from him. Oh well, my grandmother stitched away regardless and I'm determined to be just like her!
