Almost There

Happy Sunday, all! Just a quick post, because I have a few things to do before I head off to bed. I have been working diligently on Liz Easdon but hit the wall when I got to the lawn. Tiny over-one and regular size animals, then all that green satin stitch, worked around the animals. Every other thing is done on this project, including putting my initials and the year on it, but I just have to get motivated to keep going on the lawn.


And a little bit of a closer look.
Since this is my year to finish large projects, I think this finish will be my next one: "Dorothy Walpole" by the Scarlet Letter.
But I couldn't resist a little start as lawn relief. This chart has been in my stash forever--"Bunny Parade" by the Workbasket.


Which I'm starting on the remnant of PTP 40 count (Heritage I think) left over from Catharine McNeal. It's charted for GAST, but I'm doing an on-the-fly conversion to Belle Soie.
Elizabeth is a little embarassed by this shot. I was holding her in my lap (not a favorite, although like a lot of bunnies, when her head tilts back, she zones out and becomes docile) to brush her. I have never had a rabbit with so much fur. It wafts around the room. She says to have a happy week!

Keep the fur (we've got enough!) Send the stitching!

Lawns can be a little tedious to stitch, but you're almost there! This is such a beautiful sampler. Dorothy Walpole is another beauty! And so is Elizabeth! :)

Like you, I only have the grass to stitch on my sampler Diligence (Scarlet Letter). I am using stem stitch - I hope. I have yet to start!! Lovely samplers. Irene xxx

Gorgeous progress. You are so close to finishing. I know it will be done soon.
I love Dorothy too. Sweet bunny start.
I hope that you and the bunnies have a great week!

Looking good as always and I am sure you will have the grass done in no time. Happy stitching.

Go go go on that lawn! You can do it! Love your Dorothy too. I so need to start that one. Love the relief from lawn project -- such a cute piece! Interesting about the head on bunnies. It's a never ending battle with pet fur, isn't it?

Cari said...

Your stitching pieces are amazing. i always look forward to your blog updates. Hugs to the bunnies too!

Deb said...

I can't blame you for needing a break on the grass. That can seem never-ending, but your piece looks wonderful and you will be finished before you know it.

Ooooh, I can just see that this will be the year of seeing the fruits of much of your labour. Elizabeth will be another beautiful sampler for your wall! aylev
