Stitching Away at the Sampler

Hello everyone, I hope you have had a great week crafting at what makes you happy, I have and I am still stitching away at my turtle’s pace on the Lord’s Prayer Sampler. I’m sure turtles must have better eye sight than I do LOL. But its about making some sort of progress …right?   I had to look back in my posts and it was the end of May when I last posted about this cross stitch project, WOW it has been a while and other sewing projects have come and gone and its time I focused ( pardon the pun) on my cross stitch. To say I will have it finished before the end of this year, is a stretch. I’m content just to be working on it again 🙂 This is stage 6 and part of stage 7 or from here on out I will dub my cross stitch as “Current Progress”  yes  I think that will keep me going 🙂  The sampler is half way finished now…whew …but I did say I would not put it away in a drawer, I will finish it.!

I’ve included a couple of photos. The first one is where I last left off in May and the other photo of what I have accomplished in the last couple of weeks. Its up up and away to the top of the pillars and oh my the next step is a big one.

Cross Stitch Sampler – Part 5

Hi there, well its been a long time coming. I have the next stage of the Lord’s Prayer Sampler Stitched. I’ve been plodding along at one thing or another and its these past few days that I have made really good progress on my cross stitch. We have a few renos in the works and one of them is /was, part of the roof. We’ve had roofers here tearing off old roof and installing new, which made it very difficult to work upstairs in my sewing room with so much noise over my head lol And rather than being chased out of the house for 3 days I decided to bring my pallet of threads down stairs to the living room , where it was quieter and work on cross stitch there. I don’t usually work on my needlework in the living room unless it’s knitting. But it was sunny and easy to see what I was doing. 😉  And as you can see Roxie wasn’t sure about all the noise and she didn’t stray too far from my side :D….By the time I’m writing this the commotion is over and the house it back to normal. For now anyway lol.

This section of the sampler wasn’t as colourful as the last 2 sections and it seems like less of a “hoora” now that its done lol Although I found the backstitching on this section quite detailed and it shows more of the fish in the column.

I won’t give a date on the next part of the sampler since we have decided that we must to get at some much needed yard work and another reno, and work does come before play…right ? lol ….but in between my work I will be stitching on what I had planned for stage 6 and 7 and have already put some stitches in prior to this post. Slow and steady and onward and upward 🙂

Happy stitching and have a great weekend ……Izz 🙂
