Sunday Update January 13, 2013

My big news tonight is that my sampler, Gigi R's Belles-Lettres D, is on its way to Jill Rensel in Utah for framing.  It's in the UPS system and should arrive at her studio on Tuesday.  She's made a couple of preliminary suggestions in our e-mail exchange, and we'll discuss options once she has the piece in hand.

Stitchwise this week, I worked on HAED's Foregone by Marta Dahlig.  I'm enjoying stitching this one on 25 count Magic Guide, 1 over 1 full cross.  I have about 4,400 stitches done, but so far it's all dark drapery in the background.

Tonight I put Foregone away and will be working on HAED's Angel with Iris by Nadia Strelkina on the floor frame this week.  I also plan to do some beading on Mirabilia's Midsummer Night's Fairy, hoping to finally finish her this month.  She's been a long-time UFO.  Finally, I plan to start stitching Wisteria by The Silver Lining on black Jobelan, and since that's a smaller piece, I'll work that on my Q-Snaps and lap frame.

  4. Great project. Can't wait to see their progress.


  5. Oh how exciting to have Jill Rensel frame your piece! You've made great progress on Foregone. Wisteria will be gorgeous!

  6. I so look forward to seeing your piece framed! You got in lots of stitches on Foregone and it is looking great!!

  7. If I lived in the States I would have her frame all my samplers.

  8. I love your letter D by GiGi! In fact, I love it so much that I ordered the T design from Marty at stitchandfrog! :-)
    Jill just framed a Shepherd Bush piece of mine, and I love her work! Can't wait to see your "D" all framed.
