Stitching Progress

I have continued to work on a small project and a large project every day.  I finished a small project that has been languishing in my sewing basket for a long time this week.  Finished actually means finishing the stitching and finishing the stitched pieces into a block shape that I can either make into an ornament or use as a pincushion.

 I have also made some progress on my Permin sampler in a week.  I have stitched more than a thread each day as you can see.

Monet ATC and other stitching

My Monet ATC is now on its way to its new owner.  I based it on his Parliament paintings and I think it conveys the general idea of his work.

I decided to take Gay Ann Rogers challenge to stitch at least 12 stitches a day on a project.  I picked a large project, the Museum Celle Sampler 1826 by Permin of Copenhagen, a small project, Frightfully Fun by the Trilogy, and I have been stitching one thread's worth of stitches on each per day.  I finished Frightfully Fun on Sunday.

I took a progress picture of the Museum Celle Sampler on Saturday, I will continue to document my progress week by week.

Three new Temari

I finished three Temari balls today.  They are for the EGA Correspondence Course.  I am actually done with them in time to send them in for evaluation.  In the back is Fourth of July, to the right is Quaker Ladies and in front is a bound star.
