Round Robin Part 1 (a little early)

Inspiration section 1 completed.  It will be handed off to the Crone (or Maiden- I have to check the list) on October 30th.  Almost 2 months before it is due!!!  This chart is a really fun and quick stitch.

IHSW delayed update

I was so in love with the Mother's Halloween post that I did not want to put up my IHSW progress, but as I am 2 days late it is time. I worked on Shores of HRH, and am secretly cursing adding this into the rotation! As soon as I finish this box I am sure my love for it will return.

At least the wording is complete! The Maiden

Fright - Framed!!!

Here it is, finally.  Fright (completed almost 2 years ago) is finally framed.  It is set a little crooked, which ticks me off (especially when I think how much I paid to have it done).  But has inspired me to learn how to frame them myself.  I had a hard time cutting out the glare.

To Manbroider

Dear Manbroider,
I will happily give you my July 2012 Cross Stitch Collection issue 211 for you are the guru of getting Joan Elliot's done.  I tried to figure out how to respond on your blog and subscribed and everything and still came up short.  So if you are still in need of this magazine (I am missing a few here and there so I won't stress too badly without one missing number-usually I would but I have tried to let some of those things go lately!).  So...if you come across this post let me know so that I can get an address and ship it out.  I love seeing Joan's materials worked, I own so many and have yet to go there, even have the Polstitch fabrics...but you are the man, so. Let me know.

As I am working on the Mother's sampler, "Sweeter Love" I have come to realize that neither the capital letter alphabet, nor the lower case alphabet has the letter J.  I thought I could rework the pattern, but with my two fellow stitchers thought that might throw it off completely.  So I guess we will be J-less, pretty weird right?
