Progress pics

Stitching for me is my relaxation, my time to think and do something for me. I enjoy pretty things and enjoy learning new stitches and see how designers mix the colors. I am excited to always browse the internet for what is new or for information on stitching. I love to read the history behind the reproductions and would like to think had I been born back there even if I was the scullery maid I would have tried to make something beautiful with thread and needle.
I have so many projects that I want to stitch I need to quit checking out the stores on the web. I have been influenced by many of the blogs I have read to stitch things out of what is usual for me. I have been increasing drawn to some of the French designs and my goal this year is to add one or two to the stitching pile.
Here is my progress yet again on CHS Alphabets and Sail Away.I made a bit more progress on Sail Away by Shepherd's Bush.  I just have the bottom section left to do with that and am settling down to watch the bike races with my husband and  decided to work on this a bit. Since these pictures I have finished Jump and moved on to Needle on CHS Alphabets. Still not quite halfway but lots more progress than before. Plus, I am working on gift stitching for upcoming birthdays. I am waiting for some fabric to show up and then I can start on it. Hope it gets here soon. Two May birthdays in my stitching group.
Hope you have a great week and find as always some stitchy time.


  1. I find stitching very relaxing too. I have to pay attention to what I'm doing so it really is a good way to relieve and forget any stress in my day.

    Great progress on both projects!

  2. Nice progress! Those are both fun projects! I have yet to finish my Sail Away. Sigh.

  3. Hi Marjo,
    Your CHS alphabet sampler looks fabulous.

  4. Both are looking great! I so want to start the CHS Alphabet...but have been holding off doing so until I finish HoHRH :)

  5. You're making great progress on both your pieces.

  6. Sail Away is coming along nicely! I also love your Alphabet Blocks which is in my "start" pile. Stitching is one of the best things that has ever happened to me! I'm especially glad for the friends near and far that I have met because of this wonderful art!

  7. You have some really lovely projects on the go...happy stitching!

  8. Great progress, they both look lovely
