Next!

Hi, all! Whoa, this new Blogger is a little challenging to work with. Of course, I could probably find some directions somewhere online, but I never read directions; Impatience is my middle name. Finishing Sarah a couple of weeks ago was such a kick that I decided there needed to be more finishes in my near future, so here comes Catharine McNeal, down the homestretch. The colors photographed less warm than they are IRL--it's late afternoon and the light is funky. But you get the idea. I'm thinking she should be done in the next two or three weeks. I need to clear the decks so that I can start Scarlett House's new Christmastide design, the new design that just popped onto the Essamplaire site, and a few others. (You thought I had reformed?) Next up for a finish this year will probably be Elizabeth Easdon by the Essamplaire; that's about 2/3 done.
Peaches is demonstrating patience here, bunny loaf style.
Happy week ahead!

Lovely finish!

I don't know. I think Peaches looks kind of anxious. LOL! Very pretty stitching.

Cathy McNeal is another gorgeous girl. You sure know how to pick 'em. I avoid multicolored small element borders so these big flowers are something I could do. I think they're the best part of the sampler. They remind me of knitted sock patterns. Have a good week!

This is going to be another gorgeous finish. Can't wait for it! Sounds like you're going for the finishes now. :D Lovely! I do like that new piece on the Essamplaire, but the freehand embroidery scares me off. Oh well.

Catherine McNeal is a beautiful sampler. Such different colors, but so pretty. You're going to have her finished in no time!

Love the blues in your sampler and Peaches is plotting something really really fun for her but maybe not as fun for you and yours.
