Elegant Doily from Kayann's Kreations was on the frame this week. The last time it was in the rotation, I found every excuse I could to not work on it. This piece is the only WIP I have that is a chore to work on. I know, if it's not fun, why do it? Shear stubbornness. I am so far along on it that I can't bring myself to throw it away and I know if I take it out of the rotation, it will never be seen again.
Here's where it was when I pulled it out:
I finished the wrapping in those nine blocks and did a lot more cutting. I also decided that I didn't like the spider webs and took them out. I think I am going to leave the border open, but as always, it's subject to change.
In my last post, I talked about the Chatelaines I had finished. Jo from Serendipitous Stitching suggested I show them all. So, this collage is for you Jo...

I started the new The Sampler Life block this morning. It's called Spring Hearts and was designed by Olde Willow Stitchery.
This one was smaller, 47X47 then the others, 50X50, so I backstitched an additional border to make it the same size. Shakespearean Fantasy is on the frame right now and I will probably be stitching black, black and more black this afternoon.
