IHSW August 2023

 Well, I had a lot of time to stitch this past weekend.


Here are my pieces:

Saturday I took a class with Gentle Pursuits Designs through The Tudor Rose Sampler Guild

 It was a great class and I highly recommend Cissy as a teacher.

I also finished a square on Drawn Thread Sampler:

It is the center square in the photo. A little wonky close up, but if I am a few feet away, it looks fine.

I was bound and determined to work on the border of Mary Parsons:

Counting is very important on borders....

And then I worked on Susan Schlitcher 1845:

Those colors make me happy!

I almost abandoned this project:

I keep making mistakes on this brown motif-

Here is where I am today:

Hopefully I did not miscount again, but I have a bad feeling.

Well, August is Well Underway

 First, I had a significant birthday in July and so I started two big projects.

One was my casket from Thistle Threads. I haven't started the actual stitching-FEAR! But it is ready to go. 

Here is a link to see what it will look like when completed:


I also decided to start Susan Schlitcher 1845 by Queenstown Sampler Designs. I bought the kit from Kim over at Sassy Jack's 

I was going to center start, but decided against it. I'm using DMC floss for the majority.

Here is my calendar for July:
