Lady of the Thread Progress

It has been a while since I posted a picture of the Lady. I am thinking that I will stitch a little on this tonight. I want to finish the little grape cluster there on the left side of the piece. I came home and did some chores and played with Liesl a little bit. I figure it is a little late for me to get out the measuring and cutting stuff and cutting a piece of fabric this late. I do not trust myself to calculate and cut after a certain point. Tomorrow evening I have choir practice so I really do not see myself being able to start Farmer's Alphabet until Wednesday or Thursday. But that is okay.

DH was working from our home office today, so Liesie did not come to work with me like she usually does on Monday. I really missed her. She is such a great little companion. DH had band rehearsal tonight. There was a lapse of about 30 minutes between him leaving and my getting home so he put her in our room with the baby gate. She just looked so happy when I walked in. She was hopping up and down on her hind legs, looking so excited. Now she is sleeping by my feet and looks extra comfy. DH and I just feel like we really lucked out when she trotted into our lives (and took over our stuff.) LOL

I got to sit and read my Keepsake Needlearts catalog at lunchtime today. Their selection is absolutely beautiful. They seem to carry really high quality items. It really makes me long for the days when we had an LNS here. I really miss being able to see items up close. Most photographs of cross stitch does not do justice to the designs. I miss being able to see the colors up close and really see the textural value of a piece. I have been to two really outstanding LNS in the past few years. One is Thumbelina in Solvang (one of my favorite places to visit.) and Elegant Stitch in Modesto. While they are very different, I love them both. Thumbelina specializes in Danish designs and have everything in stock that they have stitched on the walls. That is so awesome. Elegant Stitch is well stocked, with a great floor plan and just feels so cozy. It is a good thing I do not live closer. LOL

Thank you for stopping by!

That is going to be so beautiful when you get her done. I love the colors in her. Good Progress too.

Take care & Happy Stitching

She is looking great! I'm sure glad it's you and not me stitching on that dark fabric! LOL
