Some WIP Pics



This is There's No Place Like Home by Drawn Thread. Sorry about the blurred picture. This is where I left it the last time I stitched on it.








This is where I finished up at the end of its rotation. Hopefully the next time I pick this up, it will be finished. I am enjoying this one though, love the colors.






The next to be stitched on, And A Forest Grew. I loved this the first time I saw it and still do. I love green, but even so there can still be 'too much', and just when I get to think this, you change colors, and the change is just enough to give the WOW factor.

Alas the time on this was short. You see I went to an LNS while on holidays and I swear I was only going to purchase the fabric and the threads I didn't have already for HAED Gypsy Rose. I got home and put threads on bobbins and I just had to put in a few stitches (first time stitching 1 over 1), and I just kept going, and I am still going.

So I have decided to keep stitching Gypsy Rose until the end of its' rotation which is Sunday night. Then I will go back to And A Forest Grew for a week and so on.

Hello Joanne,

Thanks for the help on NNI thread. It sure looks different from what I received and the colours on NNI site, no wonder it confuses me. I thought there was a mistake in the labelling section. :-)

Your WIPs is looking great...just the 1st picture abit blurry. The Forest Grew is going to be beautiful, I've been following Carol's (Garden of Stitches) progress.

I've added you to my site...so that I can follow on your progress too.

Hugs and have a great weekend!! I'm knocking off now.
