Weekend Stitching Update

It's hard to believe that the weekend is over! On the weekends, I normally make pretty good progress with stitching projects; however, this particular weekend was busy with other activities. I did finally fit in some stitching today.

This afternoon I stitched two additional squares on the DT Game Board Sampler. I'll post an updated photo next week.

Tonight I completed lessons 3, 4, and 5 for the EGA Mystery Sampler that has been featured in the last three issues of NeedleArts magazine. (Please excuse the wrinkles!) The last issue came out in December, but I just didn't have time to work on this around the holidays. The stitches this time around were all quite interesting: Four-sided stitch, Irish stitch (bargello), blackwork and herringbone, to name a few. I'm stitching my sampler with the colors indicated in the magazine. Now I'm caught up until the next issue of NeedleArts comes out (in March I think).

I have a busy week ahead of me, but I hope to complete the following stitching projects this week: Apricot Elegance SAL (Week 4), Miss Mary Mack SAL (didn't stitch on her at all last week), and work on one other project from the WIP bag! That should do it. Have a good week and thanks for stopping by!
