Can you believe that January is ending or has ended for some already? Yes, I am surprised. What a month this has been! 2014 has started off fabulously (well, not for my SFS balance which carries over into February) but for my girls it's been pretty darned wonderful.
Let's start off with Nancy who is stitching Stroke of Midnight. Nancy started last year with this project because it is so large and her goal is to give this to her sweet mother for Christmas this year. I've met her mother (wishing I could steal said mother) and know that Ma Peterson is worth every stitch and quarter stitch and tweeding done on this piece. A true labor of love
If you want to follow Nancy's progress, just click on her blog link on the right and add her to your reading list.
|Leonore's Peacock Tapestry|
Next up is Leonore, who is currently stitching up Peacock Tapestry. When Nancy and I put out the word about 2014: The Year of the Magnificent Teresa Wentzler, Leonore didn't run away...she ran right at us!! She had no idea who TW was, but her enthusiasm to join us and stitch up a few patterns was exciting to see. I'll let her tell you all about it when her interview comes up.
Will you look at that beautiful border?? I just love the border.
Now we have Krystal who has chosen Romeo and Juliet as her project along with "Stretch", "Renaissance Bookmark" and "Knotwork Bookmark".
She hasn't started yet do to her having to stitch up a birth announcement for her very first niece. Definitely worth putting TW patterns off for!
Her interview will shed more light on what is going on with her current project and plans for the future with her TW patterns. Click on over to her blog to OOO and AAHH over what she's stitching right now...those bright colors are very pretty!!
Our latest member of TW Stitchers is our girl Magical. She wasn't going to join us but then couldn't resist because our little group here are a bunch of enablers and our fervid attitude about all things cross stitch finally gave her a well needed pinch and for funzies she stitched up Futurecast. I am in love with her color choices!
Please visit her blog to see the .gif of her progression. It is fast and fun! I am hopeful she will find something else to stitch from the TW Freebies. Most of those are smallish so we shall see what she stitches up next!
|ECS so far|
And now we have arrived at what I'm doing. You already know!! But, to complete the circle of sharing I'll show you the progress on English Cottage Sampler. Nothing has changed since I posted this last time since I am currently on another project on my rotation, but never fear, I will be back at it soon enough. I'm just glad I got to start it in January as planned.
Alright, give a read to each of their blogs and make some comments and words of support and love to help them keep at it! Tomorrow starts the first in a series of interviews with stitchers who have stitched TW patterns and their thoughts about the subject. You will enjoy every one of these interviews, guaranteed!!
Until tomorrow my happy stitchers!
