I Sigh Not For Beauty

Hard to believe that it is the last day of March! Time is just fleeting by. Decided I better get one last post in before the end of the month.

First of all, thanks to Lelia and Amy for selecting me as one of their "Liebster Blogs." For me, blogging is just a vehicle that I use to record my stitching progress on the various projects that I enjoy working on. It's fun to go back and look at all that I have accomplished. I really enjoy viewing your blogs too. I may not always comment, but I'm reading them! It's really fun when I have the opportunity to connect with online friends; I'm looking forward to meeting Amy at Stitchville's Spring Fling Retreat in two weeks!

This past week I have spent my stitching time working on I Sigh Not For Beauty. This beautiful sampler was designed by Ruth Ann Russell of C Street Samplerworks. I am using the linen/silk conversion that Attic Needlework put together. It is such a beauty and I have enjoyed every minute that I have spent stitching on it. I have quite a bit more to go, but have made good progress in the 2+ months that I have been working on it. This also happens to be my guild challenge piece this year and so I am committed to finishing it by the end of the year!





In between housework and grocery shopping today, I hope to play in my stash a little bit...we'll see.

Have a great day - happy stitching!

I know this has been awhile, but do you recall what linen you stitched this sampler on?
