Week 1 - Amish Life - Visiting the Neighbors

Darn Cat!!!!! I was well into composing my current post, and he wanted to be friendly, and I haven't a clue what happened to what I had already composed.  It just disappeared!

I have tried to make a commitment to myself that I would be a lot better at posting to my blog!  I had gotten really lackadaisical over the summer.  But the purpose of starting this blog was to keep a diary of my cross stitch and the progress I do from week to week, and if I'm not posting, well sort of defeats the purpose I started my blog.

This is a week's work on my current WIP.  Coming along quite nicely considering I'm not a big landscape sewer.  But....I have to be really carefully to stay on track, because pretty much all of the linen is covered with stitches.

In addition, I joined several FB sampler groups and have become waaaay too tempted by the beautiful samplers I see, and I just have to have the chart.   Like I don't have so much stuff in my stash!

This week, I received  C. A. 1945 from European Reproductions Samplers in Germany.  Plus I receive Charlotte Clayton from someplace in Canada.  And....I bought all the issues of Fine Lines on an ebay auction, just so I could have Hannah Pepper.  Now, if I could just lay my hands on Ann Rayner, life would be perfect!!!!

 I was assured by In Stitches that the order has in fact been placed with Nancy Sturgeon of Threads through Time, and she is in the processing of printing out those charts for delivery.  Maybe by the end of September!!!!!!
