Another little project was started yesterday when I joined Cathy and Katrina in their Drawn Thread Spot SAL. This one is stitched on 36 ct linen, so that magnifier is coming in handy again! I'll be starting another SAL today with Jenna - woot! I haven't gotten this much stitching done, well, probably ever!! Thanks to all you stitchers and the daily communication and encouragement!
A recap of my February goals:
finish 1 more Grady gown - completed
finish Winter Banner - completed
begin M Designs - P - yes
SB Ornament SAL w/Connie - no, neither of us made any progress
With My Needle ornament SAL w/Friends Gather BB - completed
In addition I stitched Coeur Romantique.
And for March:
Smock 2 Grady gowns
Stitch Prairie Schooler ornament w/FGBB
Stitch Spot of Summer w/Cathy & Katrina
Stitch Banner w/Jenna
Finish hardanger emery for SAGA
I think that's good. I may sneak in something else that strikes my fancy, but we'll just see what happens this month. Now for the SBQ this week:
Today's SBQ was suggested by Cheryl and is:
What cross-stitch magazines or other publications (as opposed to
blogs) do you read on a regular basis? What do you like about them?
What do you not like? What would your perfect publication include?
I do not read or subscribe to any xs magazines currently. Years ago I did, but found I was not able to stitch many of the designs and they began to take up more space than I could justify. I do enjoy looking at them occasionally to stay current on new notions and designs, but the only one I've purchased on a regular basis the last five years is the JCS ornament issue. I suppose the internet has met most of my needs for staying current in the xs world and it takes up a lot less space in my home! Perhaps I should consider the on-line magazines, hmmmmmm.
