I am going crazy....

It was a busy week again and the evenings were not very productive at least not in the meaning of stitching.

On Wednesday I got some free tickets for the game of our local ice hockey team at work. Unfortunately that was the game they did not win after a long series of wins...
Anyways: Go...Wheat Kings...Go!!! :)

I just put a few stitches in the top left and 2 more tombstones:


Browsing blogs I got so excited to see some stitchers starting on these very big and beautyful samplers, that I couldn't stop myself from gathering all the materials for Susan Rambo after I got my copy of the SANQ in the mail on Friday night. Not sure how long I can withstand the temptation to start her. I should really know better....I plan on stitching her with DMC on 40ct R&R Salmarsh Green. It is a real nice soft green/grey but I couldn't catch the colour with my camera. I haven't stitched with DMC in a long, long time, so that will be a nice change. Two of the colours in the list didn't seem quite right when I compared them to the picture in SANQ so I exchanged those to what I thought looks more like what's used in the sampler.


...And I fell in love with Ann Grant from Shakespeare's Peddler. That's not quite right though...I fell in love with her the first time I saw her on the SP's blog. But now seeing Nicole's and Deb's start on her I HAVE to order the chart and thread pack. Have you seen it??? - Just beautiful! So as soon as that package is gonna show up here we can expect me to go crazy again and add to my already big number of WIP's. But stitching is supposed to be fun, isn't it??? ;)

Aren't these blogs awful for enabling! LOL Your Jenny Bean piece looks wonderful. Are you going to stitch Jenny's Beans Creation as well? And I'm going to be watching for your progress on Susan Rambo. I almost started her, but then Ms. Grant called the loudest. You will love working on her as well.

Yes, stitching is suppose to be fun. Pay no attention to the number of WIPs you may have - go for it!!! "p)

Susan is such fun to play with :) I'm also planning to stitch Ann Grant, but still awaiting for my threads to come in. They are both big girls and not sure if I should wait Ann till finishing Susan, but Im very tempted like you said after seeing Deb's and Nicloles... I'd love to see your start on either one!!

Great progress on JB! I just love that series.

The threads and fabric for SR look great - I may cave on that one as well. I have caved for Ann Grant - just haven't gathered all the materials. What fun!!!!
