Progress

I got some good stitching time in this week and finally have some progress to show for my efforts.
This is my Stained Glass Landscape by Kappie Originals. As I was doing this section I realized that for someone who really does not like backstitching all that much, I certainly wasn't thinking when I chose to do this piece. However the backstitching is what makes it and I am loving the result. I was so pleased with the way my little purse turned out that I decided to do one along with the ladies who are taking the class. Not wanting to make another one the same I took Karen's advice (Rosewood Manor) and decided to try something a little different ...the possibilities are endless for this bag...and I am doing this version on 18 ct Victorian Christmas green aida with white anchor thread.
And last but not least I got out the page from Jeannette Douglas' My Stitching album and put in a few lines and the lettering. Another couple of das and this page will be complete. This album is such a great idea and it is fun to do the various stitches and their variations.

If I want to do any stitching in the next few days I had better get at it now because we have company coming this afternoon and more family arriving tomorrow. There will be lots of visiting and eating and searching for chocolate easter eggs.
