A Finished Knot

My Ghordian Knot is done. Need to drop it off to our group leader tomorrow after work. Can't believe how much I stitched this week to accomplish this goal.

No more geometrics for me that are the same thing four times. Repition of this type does not make me happy.

I'm sorry I couldn't pull the pulled work. Just don't have the hand strength.

All in all, I'm happy.

Edit:  this morning I realized I can't see my photo, so I'm adding it. If you see it twice, that's why. My abilities to edit on my phone stink...

Ghordian Knot

Yes. I have been stitching like crazy on this. Trying to turn it in on Monday. I'll definitely make it. Just a couple of hours on the border and the beads left to do.

I really, really like this. Even if I couldn't pull the pulled work properly.

Ghordian Knot

I don't have much time left to  finish my Ghordian Knot. It's due at the end of November and there's lots of stuff I need to be doing.

Made great progress today giving me hope.

But I find pulling pearl cotton quite difficult. Just don't have the hand strength.

Still it's quite pretty.

You Never Know Who You Are Going to Meet

Like a month ago, I was in Louisville having a great time with all things Seminar.

In my Zebra class I met someone that's a member of this group - The New Jersey Needle Artists - an ANG chapter. We were in the same Zebra Out of Africa class. And another member was in Cardinal Country as was my roommate. 

They have a snazzy blog to go with their website and you can visit it here - blog of NJNA.

Makes me wish I had time to work on my Zebra! 

So a salute to my new friends in New Jersey - you are doing a fine job on the social media thing and more especially with the stitchy thing!

Just yesterday I finally picked up my Loudoun Sampler Guild Mystery Sampler which I've had to ignore for the past two months. But I finally finished the June band and added my horse and fox to the first band. I'm ready to outline my design my own band and then I'm moving on to the Quaker band. No way I'm catching up on this project, but at least I'm continuing to make progress.

Visiting Fort Bragg

Drove down on  Friday to visit with Airborne (new name for DS), his wonderful wife, and our Miss Cuteness. We've just been hanging out admiring our little girl.

Did some stitching in the car on the way down and will continue with that project on 10 ct canvas on the way home today.

While here I've done some work on my twins project. I finished the one on the right a few weeks back. It has an error that I'm still debating on whether or not to fix. Or maybe I'll just recreate it on the left one?

Very much still in love with the Pepper Pot silk. Looking for another project to use it on.
