A Stitch in Time*

A Bit More Progress

Here is the latest photo of my sampler. I really hope I find a bit of time to work on it this weekend. Wait, I won't find the time---I will set aside time to work on it. Last Saturday I stitched for 1/2 hour in the morning right when I got up, so at least that way I did get some stitching done last weekend.

House and Garden Sampler Progress

Here's a closer shot of the new house:
New House Emerging!

The green is a bit brighter than the other greens I've used so far but I decided to add more varied hues and tones to make the sampler 'livelier'. We'll see how it turns out! How do you think the new greens look with the other colors so far?

It looks to be a busy weekend for me at home. I will work on my master's project all day, both days. My goal is to put in twelve hours this weekend!

I have not been good at doing so lately, but I must get to it this weekend. Sigh. I would so rather go to the dog park with our dog, work on the house, visit with friends and family, or sit and stitch, but I need to work on this project!

Thanks for all your comments and support, and please let me know what you think of that new green shade.

    That shade of green would be better if it were on a green doughnut cake.

    I think the green looks great ~ is that a Lady Banks Rose climbing up the side of the house? Isn't it just wretched the way work/studies get in the way of stitching?? Hope you make lots of progress on both :~)

    I think it look good, it gives a nice bit of contrast. In real life there are so many shades, that it works well. Nice progress. Good luck getting everything done you need too, hope you can squeeze in a bit of stitching time too.

    Loved the before and after shots of your backyard area. The change from what it was to what it looks like now is amazing. I'd enjoy hanging out back there in the summer too.

    I think there are so many greens in nature that it will look fine!

    Well it looks good to me, lots of different shades in a piece makes it come to life don't you think?
