Hello! It has been a while since I have posted. I never use the laptop anymore- just my Blackberry, so it seems like a hassel to drag it out. But today I shall show a few pics. I joined the Marquoir Group on yahoo and have been busy stitching some wonderful patterns. I don't speak German, but with the help of Babel fish I have been able to keep up. Also, the moderators are fluent in English and are great helping translate if needed.
I have also started See the Star by Monika Buro and have finished 6/25 parts. I am stitching it on 40 ct Spellbound from Sassy's Fabrics with assorted HDF. This is the first 5 parts.
Here is also Zentangle-2 by Kirsten Schmidt. I have stitched 4/24 parts on this one. The original Zentangle-1 is why I even found the group. I joined the group after it was already stitched, but was able to purchase it with a donation to a charity of the list mom's choice (there's a new list mom now, so I joined just in time to be able to get it!!). Zentangle-2 is being stitched on Sassy's Caramel Corn which is a very rich yellow. It looks very faded in this picture. The silk is HDF special dye that we called Crushed Berries.
I am also stitching Quakerchen (Little Quaker) and Sissi Sampler. I just got the 3rd parts of each of those and will update them a little later- if I can remember!!
Once again, all these wonderful projects are copywrited to the Marquoir Group which I highly suggest to anyone who likes to cross stitch! We will be starting a tea cup sampler soon as well as a couple of other samplers. Babel fish is a great tool to help with translating!!
