A new start :-)

Yesterday I started the Toccata II SAL with Manuela. Manuela started on sunday but due to my DT Sampler Game Board SAL commitment I had to stitch two squares first.

Today I had to bring Lisa to the doctor...It started yesterday in the late afternoon. Her eyes filled with tears and after some time the tears changed to a yellow sticky liquid. And in the night she had a lingering cough. When I switched on the lights I realized she coughed gunk and it was all over her pajama and her bedclothes....poor little thing.

One week without blogging.....

....but with a little bit of stitching.
I put a few stitches in And a Forest Grew but I made a mistake in reading the colorkey and used only two green shades instead of three for the tree constituted of three squares on the left. I'm not going to correct this error :-)

And I stitched two squares on DT's Sampler Game Board:

Wohooo....my first finish in 2007!

2 minutes ago I finished Hearts and Flowers by Carriage House Samplings. I love the colors so much. It is stitched on my favorite Linen. Shell Permin 32ct.

....and now back to AAFG :-))))
Friday and yesterday I stitched each day one square on DT's Sampler Gameboard. On saturday evening we were invited to our neighbors home...so no stitchin on saturday ;-(
Thanks to our Game Board Sampler SAL I hope to finish the Gameboard very soon.

And here is my progress on And A Forest Grew. It is so much fun to stitch and there are a lot more color changes as you realize looking at the picture...but as said before: IT'S JUST FUN!
I did not stitch as much as Carol did, she's such a speedy stitcher :-)

Unfortunately ;-) I have to put it aside and take out my DT Sampler Gameboard to stitch my 2 weekly squares as agreed with my SAL friends

By the way, did you see the new Drawn Thread Designs? They are a must have!

Happy New Year to Everyone!!!

My dear friends, I wish you all a happy New Year 2007.
2006 wasn't a very good year for me and my family and I hope so much 2007 will turn out to be a better one!

I made some progress on Winter Wonderland and Hearts and Flowers:

And as fears when I saw Carol started And a Forest Grew by Rosewood Manor I gave in to the temptation and started it as well. I do like all these wonderful trees and animals so much....
