Finally a Long Weekend and Time to Stitch

We had a 3-day weekend so we spent it out at our trailer. I love it out there. No phones (even cellphones), no TV (except for playing DVDs in the evening) and very little housework so I have lots of time to stitch and read.

Now that the postal strike/lockout is over, I finally received the 1st installment of the With Thy Needle and Thread "Birds of A Feather" Mystery Sampler. It arrived (along with the fabric and threads) on Thursday - just in time. This is my progress as of yesterday.

Three weeks ago I finally started the first chart I ever purchased by LHN - Home of a Needleworker. I have been wanting to stitch this for ages but for some reason I never got around to it until now. The following is my progress as of yesterday also. I am stitching it on 36ct Flax Edinburgh Linen with a combination of GAST and WDW threads. I just ordered Home of a Needleworker Too yesterday. I thinking of putting one up in my house and the other up in the trailer.

Well that is it for now. I want to get some stitching done before hitting the sack.

Happy Stitching!!!!



  1. Great projects! I just started the Mystery Sampler this weekend as well!

  2. Great start on both WIPS Loretta! I am really liking the mystery Birds of a Feather. I managed to click on comment before your blog went grey for me again, disabling me from clicking on anything on your wall. For some reason this only happens to your blog, but if I'm quick enough, I can make a comment!!

  3. looking forward to seeing the mystery sampler

  4. I like the start of the mystery sampler. I can't wait to see more.

    Oh, and the L*K chart arrived yesterday. I'm already well at work on it.

  5. You've made some good progress on both your new works. I've just ordered the Mystery Sampler yesterday. I've been enjoying it on so many blogs. Your LHN will be a fun stitch.
    I'm still waiting on the charts I ordered prior to the strike. I hope they arrive soon. I'll be ready soon for a new stitch.

  6. Both starts are looking great and you stitched a lot in both of them.

  7. They both look great, Loretta. :)

  8. The reds in your first WIP are fantastic!
