What I Stitched This Weekend

 It was the International Hermit and Stitch Weekend; a perfect excuse to take as much time as I could and stitch! No before photos, but here is where I ended.

I am caught up on the Linen and Threads Mystery Sampler for October, except for initials.

I have the letters in for Amber Waves of Grain:
I have made some progress on my Avlea project:
And I have done a little, very little on Agnus Dei:

Inchies is creeping forward. I am debating on whether to do something around the borders. Yes? No?

What color? White? Black? Purple?

So did you stitch this weekend?

Gifted Gorgeousness for October

 I am doing very little on my sampler, but here is my progress. I have gotten distracted by my other projects.

Have I made any progress since last month? Probably not. Oh well. Good intentions and all.

This SAL is hosted by the wonderful Jo of    Serendipitous Stitching  . Go check out her blog and see all the wonderful things she has been stitching!

A Little Update on Some Projects

 I have been stitching lately, but I am scattered with all my projects.

First, I need to get a move on Inchies by Kathy Rees as I want this done before the end of the year.

Gary and I talk a little about this thread on  Fiber Talk .

Also, I have been working on my heart by Gay Ann Rogers:

Her sale starts tomorrow (Thursday, October 15,2020) and you can find it HERE .

One more thing, we are taking another tour of Gallery76 tonight on YouTube. If you can, join us as it will be an interesting show.

A Bit of Frogging

 I was moving along on my Linen and Threads Mystery Sampler when I realized Brendon gave an alternative to the Halloween section. Since that section did not appeal to me, I need to rip. But here it is at its current state:

And I realized I should have planned better where I was going to place initials. Those are staying in as I have a bunch more to add!

Wednesday Again?

 I feel like I am running around like a chicken with my head chopped off. Is that anything new?

I have managed to keep up with stitching every day on my heart:

I also decided to work every day on Angus Dei:

Will see if I can manage both! I am also working on the Linen and Threads 2020 Mystery SAL, but I forgot to take a photo. Will do that and post it soon. I would say tomorrow, but don't hold your breath!

A New Project and a Challenge

 Melissa over at Measi Musings 

is the host for the WIPocalpse SAL and this month she has challenged us to put at least one stitch on a piece. I decided to use Amber Waves of Grain by Gay Ann Rogers. Here is my starting point:

 I have been planning to start a Gay Ann piece all year and I finally have an excuse to start one. Let's see how much I can get done.

Fiber Talk on Wednesday

 We’re chatting once again on a Wednesday. This week Beth and Gary gush about Gay Ann Rogers and her designing talent and talk about meditative stitching, the Avlea Octokafe embroidery design, how history adds interest to needlework projects, and the Thistle Threads 17th Century Whitework Samplers course. Gay Ann Rogers will return for our next live show on Wednesday, Oct. 7, to introduce a new design.
