Shown above is my progress on "A Chirpy Sort of Place" which was gifted to me by a non-stitchy friend, who gave me 2 Pooh kits. The 2 Pooh kits have lots of areas of solid color, which make them great to work on when I am tired or having trouble concentrating. Below is where I left off last time:
I also stitched on "Simple Blessings" by Sandy Orton. I am stitching this Quaker sampler from a pattern in "The Best of Kooler Design Studio", which was a gift. This book has so many wonderful patterns!
I finally added the second turkey to my little "Give Thanks" sampler, which was a freebie pattern from DMC. I wish I had more stitching time to finish this, as I don't really have any finished Thanksgiving themed pieces.
I also started another Sandy Orton Sampler using floss purchased with a gift card from my Mom. This is the "Spanish Sampler" and is worked from the outside border in towards the center. It has many specialty stitches, so it should be a nice challenge. I have finished the outside cross stitch border 191 x 191 stitches and started working on a corner motif.
Here is where it is headed:
WIPocalypse question of the month: What pattern (or designer) is on your must-try-to-stitch bucket list?
I'm afraid I don't have a simple answer to this question. I have seen so many wonderful designers over the years. I would love to stitch "Bothy Threads" cut-thru Haunted House and cut-thru Castle, a Long Dog sampler, a Chatelaine, a Glendon Place dessert, an Ink Circles design or two or three, and I'm sure there are many more!
That's all for this update.
