Mary Glover SAL #1 and #2

Hi, since last week, my mum has been having cold, and now Sweetie Tass, too...
Mum is getting better, though Tass has quite high fever, but he is very fine, playing a lot in the house! :D
I hope I won't get their cold next!!

By the way, since after I finished "Sarah Spurr" © Carriage House Samplings, I have been stitching "
Mary Glover SAL".
I didn't know about this wonderful SAL, but Merumo asked me to join in, too!
When I jumped to the SAL blog, I fell in love with this beautiful design and decided to join in soon!
Thanks Merumo for asking me to join in it!

Here is a photo of #1.

Happy Dance! "Sarah Spurr" Fin!

Hi, finally "Sarah Spurr" © Carriage House Samplings has finished!
It took more time to stitch outer frame than I thought, but it was very fun!

Here are some photos of "Sarah", it finished this afternoon and the weather wasn't good today, so I took these photos in the living room, that's why they are not good photos, though...
Especially the colour doesn't show well justice, in the real time this piece is so beautiful on this rich colour linen!

Hi, thank you for your comments, as always.
I appreciate for them!

Now just to stitch an outer frame!! whew...
But it's going to be quite tough, so will take some more days to finish!

Isn't this design beautiful?!

Sarah's progress 0203 and "Setsubun"

Hi, how are you?
It was a fine day today, not so cold, not windy, was a very comfortable day!
How's weather in your country?

BTW, here is my "Sarah Spurr" © Carriage House Samplings, I can't believe that I can stitch very faster than usual, it's so fun to stitch along like when I began cross stitch!!
Sarah is so beautiful, but I'm not sure the thread colours that I've changed...
What do you think? so far so good? or do I better to change somewhere in this piece??
I do hope everythings going well in the end!!

Tomorrow, my friends and our children will visit one of their home to let them play and of course as for us to stitch!

I'm going to write down my 2011's goal on the left side bar sometime soon, so I can figure out what to stitch next! :D
If you are planning to stitch the same project, please feel free to let me know, we may be able to do SAL if our timing correspond to our plan!

BTW, today was a "
Setsubun", Sweetie came back from Preschool with Ogre mask as every year!

This year's Ogre is also pretty, not scary at all! :D

And we made Rolled Sushi (Makizushi or Maki-Sushi) called "Eho-Maki" which brings happiness for us whom ate whole it as looking toward the years direction. (Sorry for my poor English...!!)

This year's direction was south-southeast, so we ate them as looked toward south-southeast.
We hope we will be able to be happy this year, especially hope to be in good health!

Sarah will finish soon, so please look forward to seeing her finished piece!

Take care and have a lovely day!
Thank you for your visit to my blog.

New WIP "Sarah Spurr" by Carriage House Samplings 0201

Hi, I was going to decrease my WIPs this year, though I couldn't resist to start this design that I had been longing to stitch for many years!!
It's been a long time to stitch on 40ct, but I love this 40ct Vintage Light Exampler (Lakeside Linens & Designs, Inc.)!

Here is a photo of Sarah's progress on 25th of Jan. I changed some thread colours, it's quite tough design, but I'm very enjoying to stitch along at the moment!

And here is some photos of Sarah's today's progress!
At the moment, I'm stitching only this, so it's making rapid progress!

Now it's more stitched, so please look forward to see the next progress!! :D
I'm already planning to stitch another CHS design as next project!

Thank you so much for your visit!
Take care and have a lovely Feb.
