Happy Mother's Day

We're getting ready to head over to my mom's to enjoy the day with her, but before we go, I wanted to quick post a couple pictures for you!

First, an updated DT Game Board Sampler photo. If you read my blog regularly, then you will know that I just re-started this beauty on 36 ct linen (the pattern calls for 25 ct linen). My semi-completed version on 25 ct is now in the hands of Nicholas, Lelia's son -he plans to finish it when he has time. We all know what a talented stitcher Nicholas is!

Since you last saw a photo, I stitched a little bit more of the top border, and between last night and this morning completed three squares and started a fourth.
Lelia, Bine, Myrna and Nicole, plus a few other non-bloggers are stitching along with me. (Lelia - any chance we could convince them how much fun blogging is?) Anyone else care to join us?

The second photo for today is a finish -woohoo! I started it in March and have been working on it a little bit at a time ever since. This is Quilt Time Sampler from LHN. It will be a birthday gift for my sister-in-law later this year. I'm planning to get it framed between now and then. (Sorry, the design in the photo isn't perfectly straight!)

Thank you for visiting my blog and thank you for your kind comments. I so enjoy hearing from each and everyone of you. I will be visiting your blog too and look forward to seeing your stitching updates!

Oh Cathy, your sampler is gorgeous! And it's wonderful that your first Game Board Sampler is now with Nicholas. You are so generous :)

Cathy, I wanted to thank you as well for all the thoughtful and kind comments you leave on my blog. They're always treasured!

Happy Mother's Day to you! :)

I love your finish and it's so nice that Nicholas could receive the Game Board Sampler from you.

I bet it wouldn't take much to convince your friends of how much fun it is to blog. ;)

Love your Quilt Time Sampler Cathy, it's really pretty! Nice progress on SGB too - I'm glad Nicholas has your old one so that we can see his progress. That's really generous of you :)

Congratulations on your finish!

The game board is coming along nicely. I've seen this one finished, and it's really a lovely piece.

Super cute sampler, great job! You've almost got me convinced to do the gameboard with you, especially since you mentioned the 36ct., I can imgaine how cute it will be like that. I have so much going on though...

Good going on DT Game Board Sampler -- I admit, with Mother's Day, I didn't get a stitch in!!

The LHN - Quilt Time Sampler is wonderful : ) Your SIL will enjoy this birthday gift from you. Looks lovely.
