Stitching Time

Started off the week with finishing up some of the Friendship RR's.
First is Simone's....


Second is Ann's....


Then Zentangle pt. 9 was finished....


Worked on Secret Garden 3 - right now it's confetti, confetti, confetti....I'm not so pleased with the coverage, but using two threads over one was just so bulky.


And lastly, Mom's travel sampler is showing some progress...


Hope you all have a great weekend!

You're on the ball - or should I say needle - aren't you? Beautiful stitching you've done in the chilly weather we've been having. Nice to see a sunny Saturday, isn't it?

Wow, girl you have some great progress there. Love that Zentangle.
Nice to see some stitches in your HAED. I know what you meant about two strands - I tried it and found it too bulky too but with the dark threads you can see through a bit. Keep it up girl!!

OMG Carolyn you've been so busy, they all look fabulous. It's a shame you don't come across many RR's over here in UK, maybe I'll have to start searching.

Hi Carolyn! I've seen your comments on many blogs and just stopped in to check out yours. The travel sampler you're stitching for your mom looks intriguing--I'll be back to see your progress...

Beautiful stitching :) I am always amazed at how much others can achieve :) Zentangle is a wonderful splash of colour!

I have not stitched since we moved - huge lighting issue in the new house and need to figure out a solution and fast - feel like I am going CRAZY!

Nancy M said...

I'm just fascinated with Zentangle. It's so pretty!!! Your mom's piece looks like quite the undertaking! You are a much braver person than me for doing that piece on black.....did that once, not sure I could do it again. Are you RR's about done???

Rene la Frog said...

great progress on your WIP's...everything looks fantastic

Sharon said...

Beautiful progress on everything-really liking the RR!

Your Zentangle just keeps tangling! So interesting and I love the bursts of color.

Gabi said...

Ohhh...finally an update on your fantastic travel sampler. It's such a beautiful piece.
Love your Zentangle too. Are you going to stitch the second one as well? I'm creating a different surrounding for it though.
Your hearts look great too.
