Exciting Day!!!!

I had a fabulous day yesterday! I would have posted last night but I was way too tired. Yesterday, I attended a class given by Mary from Ozark Samplers. It was a fun fiber class. We had the option of stitching pilgrims or Indians. We stitched on 10 count fabric using different threads. I did find out that I do not like VINTAGE old threads. I used them but they kept breaking. I chose to stitch the Indians which aren't out yet. I do have the pilgrims but they will be stitched later. I also will be stitching the Indians over 1 once Mary gets them ready. I asked and she said that they will not be released to the public. They maybe a chart just for my LNS - "The Busy Needle". She also told me I could show off the other model I stitched for her at the beginning of the year. That is the Welcome piece at the top. It has stained glass effect which I had to learn to do. You take 1 color thread , matched w/ 1 white thread and start stitching away. It will give you look like stained glass.

I also carved pumpkins last night with my niece and nephew. We had fun doing that. Mine looks really strange. I will take a picture of it later.

I also worked on Dog Bone Wisdom this week. It is looking so much better. I am making progress on all my pieces. I hope to finish several by Christmas.

Stitches left to stitch: 574,816

percentage complete: 14.5%

Unfortuantely this is about to change since I have just agreed to stitch 2 models plus my new Pilgrim and Indian projects!!! OH my a stitcher always has something on their to do list.
