A Stitch in Time*

Plotting A Project and Feeder Success!

I've spent all evening working on a sampler pattern of sorts that I will someday stitch. It's based on a wonderful sampler of homes I found online that was stitched by a group of French women. Here's a picture of that sampler, called the Dijon Sampler:

Several other stitchers around the globe have also stitched similar neighborhood samplers, and I've loved watching their progress online.

I would love to be part of a Round Robin, but I truly have never committed to one due to time limitations on my part. I just can't stand the thought of a deadline when it comes to my hobby. It's too much like my job then, to me. All the more reason I so applaud my fellow stitchers who stitch up a storm in Round Robins.

So all evening I've been graphing out various houses I wish to stitch, and fitting them along with other motifs on the graph paper my husband bought me. I've had enough for now, and I wish I had a crosstitch program of sorts for my computer. I think it would make it easier, wouldn't it?

We'll have to see about that one!

    hay que lindo pajarito, que lindo que pusieras un alimentador para poder observarlos, y yo creo que si, que cada ave tiene un comportamiento diferente.

    Oh I love when the birds start coming to the feeder. I had so many come in our old house, but here there are no birds :( I loved seeing the Cardinals and Chickadees and the finches on my feeder. Have fun!

    Isn't that a beautiful RR? I've seen it before. I'm currently in a neighborhood RR - this is my third neighborhood RR, and probably my 7th RR that I've participated in. I know what you mean about sometimes feeling the pressure, but the great thing about RRs is that you end up with such a gorgeous, unique piece when you get it back!

    Oh that sampler is wonderful. I'm sure you'll have fun creating one. The scrub jays sure are pretty. We don't have that type of jay here.

    Round Robins aren't for everyone. Yes you have a deadline to live with. But then you have to learn not to get worked up about things not being sent on time by other stitchers and trust in the co-ordiantor to keep things moving smoothly!
