A Little Stitchin'

Gentle Friends... I picked up Paradise and have gotten the checker-board border completed... and it met up without a problem... woohoo!!  Here's a snaperoo...

... it's a wrinkled mess and looks awfully blue in the picture but you get the idea...  I've already started thinking about the next piece to pick up when this one wraps... I think I'm leaning heavily towards another sampler... I do love a good sampler!!  Then there is Hallowe'en... I think I've landed on a great piece for the Fall to stitch...  so many projects so little time!

There you go sports fans.  Thanks for stopping by do stop again.  Stay Safe!

Good Thoughts! Good Words! Good Deeds!


  1. Paradise is looking good, Edgar. Glad the border met up without a hitch!

  2. Edgar, that is just beautiful!! I am anxious to see what you decide to do next!! Hope SF is staying cooler than Seattle!! We got AC a few years back and I am so thankful. My neighbor and her kids are sleeping at our house tonight! It is so bad up here, maybe 110 today!

  3. I was so happy to see your border lining up...yay is right! I am definitely looking forward to your fall piece!! I'm a halloween/autumn nut. Happy Stitching! ~Robin~ (PS....I may be alone in this, but I find it refreshing to see a piece posted with its well-earned work wrinkles... I always think I must be an incredibly sloppy stitcher to end up with so many wrinkles before pressing when others post progress photos that are seemingly wrinkle-free and pristine.)

  4. The sheer joy of the border meeting is amazing!!!

  5. This is looking wonderful. I love when a border meets up! Can't wait to see what you decide on as your next project once this beauty is finished.

  6. The pops of color throughout this piece are so eye-catching. Love it!

  7. Dearest Edgar: I love this design, the Sun makes me smile when I see him peeking over the edge of the design.
    You have made great progress.


  8. Looking beautiful! It’s always a good thing when the border meets!!
