American Beauty

Another WIP done and under the belt.  I finished this cute little design from Sheepish Designs called American Beauty a few nights ago and havent had time to get onto the computer, let alone post on my blog.  Of course, not knowing the specific name to this fabulous charcoal 32ct linen, isnt the end of the world right?!  This tiny pattern called for Silk n Colors..... now I am not one to EVER complain about using silks, but I didnt have most of the called for colors, so I thought it would be fun to convert the cover picture to overdyed COTTON.  Yes, you read correct.
I am excited to cross off another WIP from the crazy January challenge.  One stitch at time, they will all get done.......eventually :)  I am working now on Carriage House Samplings Quaker Study.   I had started this ?????  and look forward to getting it done as well.  I will take some progress pics and share those with you soon.  It is another easy stitch, dont know why it has taken so long to get'er done!

There are a couple I am eager to get finished, and with Double Dee on the warmer, (NOT on the back burner) it is nice to free up the WIP basket.   So many options..........so little time :)
