Just a little update of AQC
I worked on A Quaker Christmas for a little while again tonight, and I was able to add some of the smaller motifs and start the next larger sized one. I was looking forward to putting some good time in on this tonight, but I received an email this morning from one of the stitchers in the HoE Biscornu Exchange, letting me know she had to drop out of the exchange on the eve of the mailing date. Since I am leading that group, I needed to take over stitching a biscornu for her person. I spent a while this afternoon going through charts and gathering fabric and fibers to start a replacement biscornu. I was able to get a few stitches in on it too, and plan to get that done this weekend and out in the mail by Monday (the latest) so that the recipient will still receive it on time.
KarenV, the color I am using for the lettering on HOHRH is Fire Dragon by Vikki Clayton (I am sure you remember that I am using one of Vikki's original conversions for that sampler). It really is a pretty color - good eye you have there. I don't know, though, if Vikki still dyes that color.
I am off now to start my new book - The Other Boleyn Girl :-) I finished the rather silly "Plum Lovin'" last night... not exactly ever going to be on any literary lists! LOL However, The Other Boleyn Girl has come to me highly recommended - thank you! - so off I go! ;-)
Stitched on today: Started a replacement biscornu for the HoE Biscornu Exchange, and stitched on A Quaker Christmas
