In No Particular Order (except for the first pic!!!)

A masterpiece was completed this past week. Karin picked up her framed Mary Peacock sampler!!!!! It is breathtaking!!!!!! Congratulations to Karin!!! There are several others of us who are stitching this but we are nowhere near done (well Pat might be but she is the closest). We all fell in love with this sampler while Karin was doing it and the conversion she has from Shepard's Bush is extra special!!!
File this under "We are Crazy!" A few of us picked out another group project for everyone. I don't think everyone even knows about it yet! Primitive Betty's Spring Pillow Tuck is next up. I have recently fallen in love with the fabric Lentil by Lakeside Linen and I will be using that linen (36 count!!! I am getting really comfortable with it now!!!) and my thread is called Clay Pot.
Above is Pat's Quaker auf Clef's combo. Highly gorgeous!
Above is Linda's finished (and gorgeous) Quaker auf Clefs.
Above is a little piece I stitched over the weekend for an April birthday present. The chart is by The Sampler Girl and is so wonderful. Please note that I did it on Lentil and this is where I came to love this fabric!!!
Above is one of Jayne's current WIPs.....love it!!!!! I have this in my stash too!!
Here is a chart we were ogling at the shop. I love it very much; but then I looked at the chart and thought that it was a bit too much for my skill (patience) level. It is truly a masterpiece though.
On a total whim I purchased this chart from Danybrod who is a genius of color and style!!!! Check out her website!!!
Above is Barb's finished Quaker auf Clef's and below is her progress on the most beautiful Quaker Housewife.
I may have misnamed things and not spelled everything correctly in this post. I am pooped and I want to go work on my Spring Pillow Tuck.....and watch more of Bleak House which I have been thoroughly enjoying! Happy Stitching to all!!!!!!

Great pics, Laura. I never wanted to do an Ackworth Sampler but after framing Karin's piece, I think I just might have to!! Thanks for the recap.....it's amazing just how much I miss even though I'm at the shop, too!

Karin's piece is so amazing, I am glad I got to see in person.
I love the BBD Easter Parade, almost started it awhile ago, but figured it was much of a rush to get done by Easter.

Laura - I love seeing all the projects your friends are doing and Karin's Mary Peacock is wonderful - I want to be a "virtual" stitcher in your group - I ordered those lovely Jardin Prive I and II charts from Cathy last week - she was so very nice and accomodating. Can't wait to get my charts and get started and OMGoodness - I love the Easter Parade by BBD - not sure I've ever seen that one before - love your newsy posts Melody

OMG I need a vocab book to understand the specifics of your note! But hear me clear, your enthusiasm, joy, delight, and comaraderie come thru clear and lovely as always. Same girl, just a new passion! What fun! I remembered my Goggle info so I can leave you a note!
