"Joy in the Journey" & BBD "Evergreen"....

Yesterday, I was lucky to stitch with Amy. Renae, Linda, Deb, and Faye and had a wonderful time making some new stitching friends. We had a lot of fun talking and laughing and stitching, believe it or not. After a little shopping at Down Sunshine Lane, we got down to business and I got a lot of stitching done on a new start.

Diane Williams "Joy in the Journey"-- FTLCS July 1999

I had started it a couple of weeks ago and love stitching it. I figured being in my To Do pile for 10 years was long enough and decided to not neglect anymore!

Once will look like this. Isn't this pretty?

Lastly....I finally finished "Evergreen" after picking up some more thread yesterday.

BBD "Evergreen" stitched on 23 ct. linen

I changed Palomino and Havana to Collards and Kudzu since I wanted it "greener". This was a fun stitch and I will probably frame it someday.

Thanks for looking and happy stitches.....


  1. I have all the FTLOCS and this pattern has always called to me too ;)
    Yours is gorgeous!
    Love the BBD Evergreen finish too! It needs framed ;)

  2. You have certainly been busy stitching. I love the Evergreen and the colors you chose. I have been rotating around and it seems like this way I don't make much progress. I need to put more hours in on one project and get something finished,

  3. Collecting ORTs, I see! Love them both and the message is a good one also.

  4. That is going to be very pretty - and I love Evergreen!

  5. I have always like Evergreen..I loved the changes you made on it! I might just do the same thing..Good visiting with everyone at DSL and I cannot wait until PALS.~~~ Faye

  6. Oh wow!! Beautiful progress on "Joy in the Journey"!! I hope you keep stitching on this! It's too pretty to put away again!
    Congrats on your "Evergreen"! I LOVE your color choices!!!

  7. Gorgeous new start and lovely finish as well. Sounds like a great time stitching with friends!!

  8. Very pretty, Karen. Nice finish on Evergreen, too!

  9. Your blog keeps getting better and better! Your older articles are not as good as newer ones you have a lot more creativity and originality now keep it up!
