Drawn Thread Doodle Progess

I meant to add this on Tuesday, but today is as good as any.   I got together with a friend and we did some stitching on our samplers. She has inspired me to spend more time on it although I am bound and determined to get Elizabeth done!!!

So Sad, So Slow

Even though I spent several hours on Elizabeth, there was not much progress.  My only consolation is that I am close to getting that right sleeve done.  Once it is finished, I will be able to start the blackwork sleeves.  And more background....

A Few More Beads

I have not done much, but I thought I would show my progress.  I was rummaging through my stash and saw two more of these kits.  Not exactly the same one, but similar.  Makes me want to stitch faster!

Starting on the Beads

I had some time so I started on the beads.  I had to remove them several times as I kept using the wrong color.

WIP-So Close!

I had planned on getting the other sleeve done this past week, but realized that I needed to put the background in so all the little stings stayed out of my way. I think the right side of the background will be done by tomorrow.  How exciting!! Well, not totally done as it needs another stitch over it, but I can see the light at the end of the tunnel!

Carriage or Spider?

It doesn't look like a spider so much.  I love the colors and really look forward to putting the beads on this one.  But I have plenty more to stitch on this before the beads.

Doodle Drawn Thread Sampler

I started this last year but it went to the basement when I worked on the pilot project for ANG.  I brought it back up and thought it would be nice to alternate with Elizabeth. Hopefully I basted it correctly.

WIP Elizabeth

I did a lot of tent stitch this week and managed to get most of one sleeve stitched.  I also did a bit on one side of the background, but it does not look like much.Maybe by next week it will have the other side stitched.

This will be my project when I need something besides Elizabeth. But now I need a new carry along project!

The Queen has Returned from Exile!

Elizabeth is the one piece that I want to finish this year.  But right now I am stuck in basketweave mode.  All the background to her sleeves and the little lines in the sleeves are basketweave.  I will have to pull out another project to work on occasionally or I will go nuts.

I had time on my trip to start this piece.  It is called Sapphire Crystal by Mill Hill.  It is going fast!
