New Stitch-along!!


Jacqueline over at Needleprint has announced a new Quaker sampler stitch-along! I am really buzzed about this one. It`s very different from Mary Wigham, it`s an interesting jumble of pattern and colour that should keep us all in stitchy bliss for quite awhile. I am anxiously awaiting the specifics of fabric count and floss, so i`ll keep you updated.
On the home front, I have made progress on Marriage of Minds, and a bit on my LJP quilt. I just have been to lazy to take pics lately for some reason. I had an interview with INS this week, and that had me stressed out, but all went well. It will be a year and 9 months before I have to worry about any more paperwork for them, then I will apply for permanent resident status. Then after that, it`s the citizenship test. I told my hubby he`s lucky I love him so much, or no way would I go through this much hassle. It`s been 2 years of paperwork, and we aren`t finished yet!
I will try to get a progress pic up soon of my stitching...til then, keep stitching ladies!

What a gorgeous piece - I haven't finished the first SAL and should not even consider this one.

Can't wait to see your Marriage of Minds.

The government is great at red tape - probably what they do best, lol.

Have a good week, MJ.

Oh no! I'm just catching up on my blogs and haven't gotten to Needleprint yet. I'm going to have to do this one for sure -- I just love that sampler soooooo much! Thanks for the heads up!
