...And three more corners still to go! I did get the first corner done tonight, and just as soon as I finished it, I started up the outline for the second corner.
I am wondering how many stitchers signed up in the Medieval Town Mandala group will be able to finish Part 5 this month? Will I??? Hmmmm.... :-) I am pretty much thinking that I can find the time this month to finish it... but I won't be foregoing my SAL commitments on Tuesdays and Wednesdays just to do it - I like my SALs with my SAL-mates too much to drop those :-)
OK, here is a posting of stash that came in over the past week... John Clayton's Big Ben kit (a must stitch to commemorate our vacations in London), A Stitch in Time by The Workbasket (also a must stitch due to its verse: A stitch in time saves my mind), Mirabilia's Stargazer and Hands To Work's Best of Blessings. I also got two skeins of GAST that I felt I may need for this chart. More fabric too - Silkweaver's Sandcastle 40 ct linen, R&R Reproductions' Hog Wild Blue 30 ct linen, an opalescent brown cashel solo by Silkweaver.... and a pretty 40 ct Newcastle solo that I forgot to photograph.. ah well....
Oh, good news today from Silkweaver! The Autumn Fields belfast I ordered back in mid-January for the Neighborhood RR finally came in and they shipped it out today! The challenge ahead of me now is to finish Part 5 of Medieval Town Mandala and baste my fabric and stitch my house before the end of the month...
Well, it looks like I will get some stitching done this weekend! Here is our local snowfall forecast for Saturday night into most of Sunday! I live just northeast of where it says "Nashua" (Nashua, by the way, is where the wonderful Celebration of Needlework festival is held each spring - join me there??) - it is downgraded from the 12"+ that they called for earlier in the week, and only time will tell... but, for sure, it looks like I will be inside trying to catch up on Medieval Town Mandala! Can't complain much - it has not been a snowy winter so far.
I have recently noticed that some of my dear blogging friends are stitching a Quaker Mystery Sampler, and after seeing their starts on the project I was very attracted to it. So, I spent some time today enjoying the benefits of Google, and I found the site. Now I will be putting this together to stitch on at work... my current "at work" project has not been motivating me lately, so I will slide this one in and see if I can get back in the groove. I put the link in this paragraph for you in case you also want to stitch this - I will save you all that leg work that I did today LOL!
Stitched on today: Medieval Town Mandala
****Oh, someone asked what fabric I am using for Mermaid Heaven - it is Sugar Maple Fabrics' Impressionism Cashel.
