A Little Bit of Progress

I've been leisurely adding to my Spring Sampler (Teresa's ezine).


I've been carrying it around in my purse and work on it a little at a time, while waiting in lines and such.


A bit of texture.


A little piece of a hankie.


This has taken the longest. I wasn't really sure what I was doing while stitching this. After pulling stitches out several times because I couldn't make them "perfect", I made myself let go and just let it happen. Glad I did.

My 39 Squares piece is going even slower, but again, I'm letting myself be okay with that and just enjoying it when it happens.

And in other news, I'm a handful (and maybe a half) of posts away from 300... this is post #292.
Soooooo, I've started putting together a pretty, little giveaway!
Stay tuned!

I fell so in love with the swirlies on the side. I decided to do one and I'm putting...The Love of Family and Friends. I adore this style of stitchery. Thanx for the inspiration.

Oh Alisa! It's beautiful!!!
I luv it! :)

I haven't stitched since I started & stopped Amy's stitch along... 39 squares. Eeek! I heard she is hosting another.

Anyway, I am looking forward to seeing you on Friday.

hugs, Joanna

Alisa, it's lovely and how soothing to just be able to pick it up at any time with no fuss and just stitch away. I haven't had a project like that in a long time. I thought I might do the 39 squares but other things intervened...
