Some more stitchy pics

I have been doing a lot of stitching this week- it helps me relax from the stresses of work. I have a small finish that only took about 10 hours- my first finish since last year!! It is Needlewoman by Carriage House Samplings. I used HDF Kindling, Old Maid of the Heart, and Basic Black. There's a shadow in the lower right side that is not on the fabric- didn't notice it until I posted it!

I have also started the Spanish Mystery Sampler from Periphaeria Designs. I am using 36 ct Terra Potta linen with Bitterness silk, all from HDF. Mine will be monochrome. Here's my start on that one-
I have also joined in the HDF Forum Daily Strand and have committed to stitching one strand of floss daily on "Eve" by La-D-Da. This is an old WIP that I started in 2006. I have been steadily stitching her now for about 2 weeks and can see a lot of progress with just one strand. Here she is so far- I have added her to the sidebar to remind myself of how much I'm getting done!

Hi, I left a comment on your Feb 4 posting wondering where you found the chart for Polly Phillip 1772. I would like to find one as it is very beautiful. You do amazing work!
