Small Progress

Hello everyone,
A few weeks ago I was convinced that after I finished Justice, I'd go back to Scottish Band, but instead I picked up Lady and the Castle on Saturday--another project started several years ago. (I don't recall now why I put it away.) Because I needed to sort out the threads again and re-familiarize myself with the pattern, I didn't get much done. Here's what it looks like at the moment:

Saturdays are about my only day to stitch. Work nights are for knitting or similar less sight-intensive activities. As much as I'd love to join in the Manifesto SAL, I'm a one-project-at-a-time person and for the next few weeks, this will be mine.

Hi Chicago Erica! I was not familiar with Lady and the Castle, so I looked for her on SL website...oh my, how lovely she is!!! These "pictorial" needle works are stunning, and I think I need to get one!!!

I will definitely be looking forward to your progress on The Lady.

I too and very interested in the progress of this piece. It looks so interesting! Maybe next post could you take a pic of the cover to the pattern? I would love to see the "big picture".

I am so excited that you will be stitching this sampler.

I have just received a catalogue from TSL and she is on the front of one of the supplements. I was studying her last night before I went to bed and ending up dreaming about her.

What a coincidence she should be featured on the blog today.

Do you think that this is a message to me? LOL.

Please, please can we have lots of close ups.
