WIPs

Well I refrained from starting a new project this week at my Secret Squirrel stitching group.   Instead I pulled out my Nan Tyson Euler "Between the Sheets" sampler from a class this past fall.  Until this week I had done no more than we did in the class.   Even though I really wanted to start something new, I am trying to stick to my resolve to shorten that WIP list.   

I love the colors and the feel of the silks.  I laid in my basting lines - which can be a godsend! and I am on my second time around with the satin stitch trianges.   Yeah, I got all the dark blue in all the way across and started filling in the lighter blue and somewhere along the way I was off a thread!  Out it all comes and not I am alternating sewing the light blue and dark  so I get the placement right.   Seems like my stitching can be all over the place within a single project as well as with many projects.

How pretty! I love the colors in this one, Robin. I have never stitched with silks, but I think I'm going to splurge and buy them for Autumn at Hawk Run Hollow very soon...
