Progress on Beatrix and a new start

I have been working on Needleprint's Beatrix Potter for almost three weeks now. It's done on 28 ct Lambswool using Thread Gatherer Nan's Mulberry. I'm loving the color variation of the silk, it's so soft and pretty.

I decided that I needed that feeling of a finish so I started this little ornament last night. Tanya at Sampler Girl is having a special, with any purchase you receive her Inauguration Day Sampler. I loved the sampler and have been eying this guy for some time so I used Pattern Mart and purchased it. I'm stitching it on a little scrap of linen that I had using the DMC colors it calls for.

Until next time,

Beatrix Potter

I am participating in a stitch along this year. I began this project just after midnight on January 1, 2009. Hopefully, it will be finished before the year is over. I am stitching this on 28 ct Lambswool with Thread Gatherer Silk N Colors Nan's Mulberry.

I had hoped to stitch a lot on it today too, but played Monopoly with the kids and took them to see "Bedtime Stories" with Adam Sandler this afternoon. If you haven't seen it yet, it's a wonderful, feel-good movie to take the whole family to. I highly recommend it!

Until next time,
