Red, White, and Bloom

By Country Cottage Needleworks
Stitched on 32 count chestnut linen with called for threads EXCEPT the green I changed to Gentle Arts 'baby spinach'.

Building a house

A summer house! :-) This is what I've been stitching since putting the 'Birds of a Feather' sampler up the other day. I'm a little surprised at how much is done. It goes to show how much time I've had to stitch lately. I should clarify that it was already a WIP so what is stitched is much more than 2 or 3 days of stitching.

I've been diligently stitching along on part one of With Thy Needle & Thread's 'Birds of a Feather' mystery sampler in hopes that I would have it finished by the time my chart fir part 2 gets here. Last night I decided to do some counting and checking to be sure things would line up when they meet. :-( I discovered that I've got to rip out all that is circled here. I keep telling myself it could have been worse if I had not checked when I did! Oh but how disappointing it is to rip out several hours of stitching!!!!! My son is in the hospital so I've had big blocks of time to work on this and it's looking like the weekend will find us still hanging out there. So there is still hope of finishing this by next week when chart 2 comes. I might have to put it up and out of sight for a few days while I recover from this frogging disappointment!
