not far to go...

Even though I've been away for quite some time from my blog and you all, that didn't mean you weren't in my thoughts!
With the wonderfully warm and sunny weather, I've been away from the computer and spending time outdoors and with friends.
The Challenge posed be me by my friend Marni I haven't forgotten either, I've been working hard to reach it, but doubt if I will make it - I will do my very best though!

In the evenings, when we haven't had company pop in, I've sat and stitched as much as I could.
I'm still really enjoying this sampler, even with the occasional glitch caused by the faults found in the original pattern, causing me to spend precious time taking out stitches instead of making them! Not matter, it gave the brain cells a workout....lol!

Here's where I've left off.....



...and speaking of workouts, that's another thing I've picked up whilst gone from here, going back to the gym, which is where I'm headed to now!

I also want to say a big thank you to all of you who sent such kind responses and encouragements!
I'll try not to stay away too long....

cheers,
heidi

What a beautiful Quaker sampler! These are some of my favorite to stitch. For some reason I find this style very relaxing to stitch. The weather here has been great too and I find it hard to stay inside and sit at the computer. A rainy day today has reminded me that you are on my PIF list....no, I have not forgotten all abot it. Someday a package will arrive to you. Sorry for the long delay.

Am out there surfing the blogs again and once more returned to yours. I absolutely adore this Quaker sampler. What color is the thread you are using? It appears to be a charcoal gray...but sometimes photos are deceiving. Is it one over 2 threads? Love it.
