Works In Progress: Revisited.  Well, good morning All!  I have been on but haven't posted because I want you to see progress... sometimes it doesn't look like much! lol  I started ByGone Stitches Quaker Christmas sometime ago.  I was doing pretty good and then tragedy... well, maybe not tragedy but... see the medallion not finished?  I had stitched all the way around almost to a close when again... I'm off 1 thread... ARRRRGGGGG! so long story short... I pulled it out and put Quaker Christmas down for a season... lol  I picked it up Saturday... and now I'm working on that medallion again... but it's going a little smoother!  I'm stitching on 32ct Days Gone By 1/1 using Gloriana Silks.

Also continuing on with EftH Resurrection.  I am making some progress here also, I started the cross. I am extending my sides so that I might scroll my linen up.  I get all excited... then I look at the picture of the finished work and realize, yeah... you have a long, long, long way to go! :)

Also, I have finished stitching my secret valentine... I just need to decide what I'm going to make with it... should it be a box, a needle book, a pillow, a pin cushion...??? what do you think??? if you were getting a secret valentine in the mail... what would you want???  Have a glorious day!


  1. First of all, I think my heart skipped a beat over your stitching and the lovely flosses! Seriously...those are some beautiful colors. I've never heard or seen that type. Truly breathtaking!

    I stitched my secret valentine but I put it on peper for a card. Not too original but the sentiment is till the same. I'll be excited to see what you do.

  2. I love all your stitchy projects! Beautiful colors in your Quaker Christmas. So yummy! And love your Resurrection as well!

  3. Nice progress on your WIPs! I love those thread colors!

  4. Your Quaker is absolutely gorgeous with those colors! So rich. And great progress on Resurrection. Just try not to look at how far you have to go! Sometimes that can be discouraging!!

  5. Both pieces are beautiful...can't wait to see the finishes! Lovely work!

    Happy Stitchin'

  6. Those jewel-toned colors you're using for QC are so rich and gorgeous, Love It!

  7. Beautiful stitching!

    I LOVE your floss colors for Quaker Christmas. Would you pretty please share which Gloriana colors you're using? I'd love to stitch this someday and your color choices are the prettiest I've seen.
