The grass took forever, in more then the obvious reason that there is 19 rows to fill in, but that the thread would break every 50 stitches or so. Now, most of you know that I like using a longer length of thread, only because I cant stand having to re-thread all the time. So, I tried a shorter length, then shorter, then finally I was using 1 foot lengths, and it still continued to happen. What a PITA!!! There was no turning back so I pressed on. It took a few nights of this ajida to finally get the front lawn done. So, now it is and while watching 'Vertigo' (great movie- never saw it before) last night, finished up the lawn and started the final phase of this cute project. Almost done with the black box-- why I didnt finish the row I dont know, but tonight is another night to keep going :)
So patience you have all had for 2 weeks now-- at least 2 weeks, and I have started from the Scarlet Letter Dona Dorothea or Double Dee for short.
There are a bunch of us who think this sampler is simply outstanding, and had to start her ASAP!!!!! So here she is, my start on Double Dee and I am soooo excited to work on her as well.
I am going to finish Fruit of the Spirit for sure next, then I have to pull out Rosina, Double Dee, Ann, Ann, Susan, Elizabeth and line them up in a row, and see who is going to be next in the running. I would love a rotation, but with these girls, I just cant stitch on them for just 1 night. So maybe a weekly rotation could work........ We shall see.
Thanks for all your wonderful comments on my last post-- it always makes my day :)
