Learning Sampler Update

Happy Sunday, hope that the sun is shining for you today and the weather is warmer than what we have had lately.  Course, I think they are still talking about more snow in the upcoming week.  YUCK.  It has been so great to finally see the ground again.  There is one small mound of snow in the front yard that the sun is unable to reach but I can tell that it is getting smaller.

I have been busy trying to catch up with the Learning Sampler by Northern Expressions Needlework.  Tomorrow Part 8 comes out and I am trying to finish up Part 3 this weekend.  I think it might be doable.

This is how it looked after completing Part 2.  Hopefully later this week I can show you Part 3 done.

This is really been a fun sampler to work on and I have been doing a lot of neat specialty stitches that I have done before but not in the combinations that this design is calling for.  If you are interested in doing this pattern contact Nicole and sign up.

Last Sunday I finished up a UFO for Monday UFO but I left it at the LNS to be finished.  So, all I can show you is a photo of the picture from the pattern.

This is Good Eggs by "The Triology".  It is a pattern back from 2004 that I had started and then put it away for a rainy day.  I need to look in my stash today and find something to finish up tomorrow night.  I have a idea but not sure I can get it done in one night but will try.

Enjoy your day stitching and relaxing......

Happy St Patrick's Day

Monday's are going to turn into UFO project day for me.  If I pick up something within my UFO stash that are close to being done I should be able to get the stash reduced.  Today I was able to finish up Lucky by Shepherd's Bush.

Sorry for the wrinkles.  I was hoping to get this finished tonight and uploaded.  It is late and time to call it night.

Hope you enjoyed your St Patrick's Day.

Learning Sampler

Recently I joined an online class from Northern Expressions Needlework by Nicole Dostal. This class started back in Sept 2013 so you can guess that I am several lessons behind. I got my material and threads this past week. So, for the first week I have completed lesson one and I am starting up lesson two. Here is my progress:

Here is a picture of the color theme that I have selected:

I am anxious to move along further with this project or at least closer to where everyone else is.  I am working on 34 count Legacy Linen - color Wren Song.  This fabric is amazing and has made this project even more enjoyable.

Well, this is a short update on what I started this week and letting you see my progress.  I hope to keep up better with my blog in the next few weeks/months.

Happy Monday....
