Gentle Readers and Dear Friends my batteries are charged up and I got some snaps of my finish from last night. Happy Jigs all around. You know that some stitching can be arduous and never ending - we've all had those kind of projects - this piece never once fell into that tedium. The only real problem I had at all was the frog issue - and it really was my fault for being off a stitch or two. (count twice stitch once)
Here are some close ups of the Hornbook .....
the colour is a bit off, as in all the snaps, always, of this piece....
Here is a snap of the entire piece, it is largish so it was a bit on the tricky side to get it lit overall....
ABC Hornbook, by Lisa Roswell of The Primitive Needle

36ct BoF Sandpiper, with the recommended over dyed floss
I really enjoyed this piece and would totally recommend it as a great stitch.
Lisa was so talented and will be certainly be missed!!!!
After I finished and took the snaps there was still some evening stitching time so I pulled out my LHN Monthlies piece and worked a bit on it. I do not want to fall too far behind so I will stitch up a few months and get back to Shores or I might just go back to Sampler Wreath, that would be a sweet finish!!
Looking at all the charts I have in my completed pile I think I need to go through and have a small stash reduction sale/trade - I really do not think I will restitch some of the larger things I have done and they should move on to new homes. I'll let you know when I post some things for sale/trade.
I think that about wraps up the post for today. Again I can't thank everyone enough for your kind commenting - and sweet words for the Blog - and as always - thanks again for stopping by, do come again!!!!
