As Usual...

I'm late with my Wipocalypse report again but here goes:
I actually stitched part 13 on Around the World in 80 Stitches
This is without the beads, they will be easier to put on at the end.
I have been working on Angels of the World
I'm a little farther along since this picture, I've started on the globe in the center.
I finished the 4th part of the Plum Street sampler I shared before.

One sampler is more detailed than the other with more little motifs(the top one in black) and is stitched on 28ct and the lighter one is stitched on 32 ct linen. I also completed the second part or Thinking Positive sampler from Jardin Prive.
No progress on Trick or Treat, Africa, Three Kimonos, Idelia Mae, or the Rose Sampler. However the anniversary sampler for my son and daughter-in-law has be delivered and according to daughter-in-law is hanging in a place of honor.  
Well until next time thank you to all of my followers who still visit in spite of my tardy post and off I go to make those little xxs.

TUSAL and so little time...

First let me start by sharing my TUSAL, it has a little of everything:
White on the bottom from "Spiral", black from "Trick or Treat", and purple from the wedding sampler for my daughter. So as you can see I've been a little busy.
Speaking of busy I have framed the anniversary sampler for my son and daughter-in-law.
All that is left is the delivery.  My needle book exchange is finished and here is mine that I sent to my partner.
I will show the disaster I made with the first attempt next time.  Once this was done I started on DD sampler and all that is left for it is framing.
 The picture doesn't do justice to the Picture This Plus fabric called "Mirage" it's medium gray with purple undertones and yes my daughter's choice.
Last but not least I started on the Facebook Sunday SAL "Mary's Sampler" from Plum Street Samplers designed by Paulette Stewart. Actually I am attempting to do I & II, one is on an unknown color 32 ct R&R fabric and the other 28ct black cashel and both being stitched with DMC.  
Well like I said I've been a little busy and I've still got lots to do.  I would like to welcome my new followers and say thank you for all of the wonderful comments.  The back is back to normal or at least pain free for now.  I know I have been promising a drawing, well here is a little one for now.
As I was organizing my many magazines I discovered that I had a duplicate 2012 Just Cross Stitch Special Christmas Issue.

  Yes it is the 2012 issue but it's full of beautiful ornaments and it could be yours, just leave a comment saying you're interested and I'll draw a winner next Sunday October 13th.  Until then I'll be making so of those wonderful little xxs.
