some progress pix

The Drawn Thread: Sampler Game Board
I added the Lower Right 2 squares -- house and lamb

I replaced the square with initials & date with a lamb from Generosity, Drawn Thread, c.1997

14 Houses
15 Motifs
29 Squares Stitched

I started the Spring Floral Tabletopper this week.
designed by Claudia Dutcher, c.2000 Dutch Treat Designs

This 40-count linen is a challenge. I did get the buttonhole edge around both sides

I will work on the finishing a little at a time. Next step is to sew the front & back together using some sort of chain stitch.
This is from SAN-Q, Spring 2001
One challenge is counting by three threads instead of two!

Today is the FIRST DAY OF SPRING ... and we have 4" to 9" of snow in the forecast for Friday & Saturday. Hello, Mother Nature, it is SPRING now ... would you please cancel the snow? Until Winter? Thx in advance

Awww poor Buddy! I have this photo of my cat who had her paw/leg in a cast it's sooo precious to me because he was a little survivor...he had cancer twice, his leg removed, crystals in his bladder and finally diabetes...he's no longer with us
Thank you for posting to my blog, I'm trying hard to be as good as the expert ones I see online! You are all sooo talented!

They all look great. The gameboard with all the little motifs is such fun, and the colors in the others are lovely. We also have snow forecasted, 4-6 inches. Yuck, I'm really tired of snow and want spring to be here too.

The game board sampler looks great! The colors and little houses are adorable. I also admire your ability to tackle that 40-ct linen with the speciality stitches. I hope Buddy heals quickly!
