Isabella Johnstone SAL : Week #3 and #4

Hi, I had been busy since my son's spring holiday has started. But from today he goes to Preschool, so I think I have a little more time to stitch.

Here is a photo of SAL week #3. I carefully stitched stems and leaves as I had mistaken when I stitched week #1... This is so fun design to stitch along!



And here is a photo of Week #4, finally a red cow my love has appeared! She is such a lovely cow, and she added very beautiful impact to this sampler.
I'm so enjoyed to stitch this sampler with Terri, although I had been stopping Mary Glover SAL and Anna Millet 1895 with Carol R.

I have been suffering from twisted neck and back almost everyday when I woke up, somehow... I think my pillow is not good for my present body??
It
make my stitch work delay more and more... sigh

Thank you for your visit, and thank you for your comment.
I always appreciate for them.


Bye for now,

Yeah for you, Yuko!!! Your Isabella looks awesome. I've got the trees done and most of the red in the cow but still have a bit of work to do to catch up. Hopefully tomorrow!

I hope you feel better - a sore neck is not fun and makes stitching a pain. Feel better!

I love this design and eager to stitch it for myself someday. Your progress is terrific - happy stitching!

Oh, it IS such a lovely cow! I also like the leaping rabbit pincushion shown in the first photo. :D

Hoping that you are well both from neck pain and this recent earthquake I just heard about--I did not hear where in Japan it was, so I'm not sure if you are nearby.

Yuko, that cow looks great! So is the whole sampler.
How nice that your son started kindergarten. Give's you a bit more "Yuko-time" (read stitching time!).
How is everything else going?

Hi Yuko! I love your beautiful sampler, and I also think the cow is wonderful! Enjoy your stitching and take care. I hope your neck and back feel better soon.

Carol R said...

Wow Yuko you certainly are getting on with Isabella - it's gorgeous and I agree your red cow is rather lovely!

Great to chat with you on Facebook earlier - we must do it again really soon! [[[Hugs]]]

Super nice progress on Isabella! I was also stitching a cow yesterday, but mine isn't quite detailed as yours. Very pretty. I know, isn't that a huge dilemma for us to try to keep up with all the WIPs at the same time? Not to try such miracle is my new standard lately ;)

Wonderful! Thanks for sharing! :D

Michelle said...

Beautiful progress! How happy is that little red cow?! And I do hope your neck is better soon. Mine's been bothering me as well, perhaps it is the pillow?
