Finish, New Start, and TUSAL

Trail Creek Farm Spring
14 count Purple Rustico Aida
Anchor 1335 and DMC Variations threads

I have a small finish. I am going to Virginia for the next two weeks, and as I was going through my basket to determine which stitching I was going to bring with me, I came across with this very small WIP. It took me only hour to finish stitching. I dont know why I had stop, I think it may have been the colors. I think they are too light with the material. I had change all the colors, which I like them, its just the color of the material.

This weekend I came across a Spring SAL and I had to do it. I dont usually do SALs but this called me. As I was reading my blogs during the week, some my blog friends are doing the SAL too. I am looking forward to theirs progress each week as I stitch this. The material I am using is a linen and the color is a very dark rose. The picture is making this much lighter. If you haven't seen the SAL yet, you can go to this blog.

Like I said, I am going to Virginia. I have packed my stitching. I think I have packed too much, stitchwise, but I will have variety at least. I have a tendency to stitch more when I am not home. I have included the March TUSAL picture since I am keeping the jar home, but I will be saving my orts and putting them in the jar when I get home. It is not a good picture but you can tell more orts have been added.

Next time you hear from me, I will be in Virginia. If anyone knows of a LNS in the Newport News/ Virginia Beach area, please let me know. I am allowed to purchase stash when I am on vacation.

Many stitches to you,

First off, Vicky, thank you for your visit to my blog and the nice comment! I enjoyed my visit to YOUR blog very much. Your stitching is so well done, and I love the spring SAL, as well as the Trail Creek Farms small. I think the colors look great! I also love, love, love Cat Lessons, and your L&L Fairy Godmother is to die for. Keep it up... it'll be well worth it.
