Almost a forest now


Almost there... while watching baseball tonight, I decided to work on And A Forest Grew again instead of starting Deb's round robin. Wow, it is really getting close now! I feel motivated to pick it up often now and just get it done! Someone asked recently if I am using one strand or two of floss. I don't recall who and think it was someone who did not leave an email. I am using 40 ct linen, and therefore am using only one strand of DMC :-)

Thanks for all the well wishes! So far, I think my choice was correct ;-)

Stitched on today: Harvest Time Exchange project, and And A Forest Grew

AAFG looks incredible! You are sooo close to having it finished!!!

AAFG and your Quaker piece are both so close to done. It must be difficult to do life stuff and not just sit and stitch until finished. They are two truly beautiful pieces and I look forward to their finishes.

Barbara said...

WOW! When I first glanced at the computer, I thought this was all done. You're so close!!

Sorry I didn't get an email off to you yesterday - I did recieve yours. Just wanted to chime in to say that IMHO you made the right choice. Please give my best wishes to Mike, too.

HUGS!!

Carol... your oh so close.
That would be me that asked about the one or two strand of floss. Thanks for the update.

Simone said...

Wow, so close to finishing! I think you shouldn't do anything but stitch 'till it's finished ;) Go for it!

AnneS said...

Getting close to the end of a piece really does motivate doesn't it. It looks fabulous.

Yuko said...

Ohh, wow!
It's nearly done!! Fantastic work!
My friends in Japan are working on this as well, but I've never seen the finished piece yet, so I'm really looking forward to seeing you finished!!!

Kathy said...

Oh, my gosh, you are almost done and it looks sooooo good. If I were getting close to being done on it, I would throw out my rotation and get it done.

Brenda said...

Ooh, your Victoria Quaker is really coming along nicely. It looks gorgeous. Will you do mine, next? LOL.

Carla said...

You're almost done!!! It's looking fantastic!
