Making progress

I worked the weekend so today is my stitching day. I worked yesterday evening on Where My heart Blooms from Blackbird Designs. It is an old Loose Feathers but as always I am behind. I am pleased to finally see some progress on it. I will try to download some pictures. I got the outline of the border completely done. Would have made more progress if I hadn't had to take some of the vine out because I was off by one line. I finally got it back in and now I will work on it a little more tonight. I worked all afternoon on my EGA class piece but can't really get a clear picture of the whitework. I finally realized I needed to make some copies of the pattern so I wouldn't have to keep flipping pages as I work on the design for the class piece. Cannot figure out why it took me so long to figure that out. Having the extra copies makes the stitching go so much faster. I took advantage of some overtime to buy some stash from The Sampler Girl. I have the Comfort of home from the early release in Gift of Stitching so I got the one by the sea and the new Christmas design as well. I also got the kit for La De Da bird. I have made a lot of bird purchases this fall so 2010 seems like it will be bird stitching.
Have a great week stitching. Marjo
