April progress....

April was a good stitchy month and  I
finished the next installment of my
Prairie Schooler ABC's sampler.

Prairie Schooler "G is for Gardern"

This was great stitch for April as the gardens
were so appropriate for the month. 
I only have 11 left to stitch and would love
to finish this one this year.   I just have to
double up a few months...easy peasy!

I was also able to finish two more on my
BBD Garden Series.  These stitch up
very quickly and I hope to finish this one
up by year end.   

BBD "The Gardener"
stitched with recommended thread
on Silkweaver 40ct Clay Pebble

 BBD "Lily in the Garden"
stitched with recommended thread
on Silkweaver 40ct Clay Pebble

Progress thus far....

I am taking part in Stitchmaynia 2017
and have decided to finally start all the
club kits I have been accumulating the
last 3 years.  All of the fabric and threads
are ready to go so it is easy to pick one
up and go.  Since they are all "smalls" I
am also going to challenge myself to fully
finish these so I can enjoy each day.

I am excited to be attending the
Primitive Stitcher's Society retreat this
weekend in Columbus Ohio.  I am so looking
forward to spending great stitching time
with both old and new friends.   I am off to pack
and hopefully get a few stitches in.
Happy stitching....

  8. I love your PS stitch! I might have to make that or the BBD stitch for my sister who is a great gardener. They are both lovely. The photos I've seen from the PS retreat look like so much fun, I'm thinking about going next year to Lancaster as its a doable drive for me from NY. Mary @stitchingfriendsforever2

  9. I am doing the ABC one as well but I am only up to C! Good luck with Stitchmaynia - makes me nervous to start so many projects so I didn't do it!
