A Hidden Treasure


While going through some tote bags, I found a CHS design I had been working on and obviously set down and forgot about. I know I wasn't really thrilled with the count size I used for it (Aida 14ct) but look at how much I have done on it! I thought about re-starting on a smaller count but I have way to much done to worry about that now! Now I need to go through and get the threads pulled out again for it so that I can resume working on it and hopefully have another CHS finish very soon!

While I am writing about CHS works in progress, Independent Mind is starting to coming along nicely! I no longer feel like I am stuck in first gear on it. I am almost finished with the divider which will make me very very very happy! I will share a picture as soon as the divider is finished up!

The rest of the week will be spent with stitching, appointments and if the weather permits, Harold and I will probably get busy with some of these projects we need to to take care of.

If I happen to disappear for the remainder of the week, I hope you all have a lovely Easter filled with jelly beans and marshmellow chicks! Thanks for stopping by. Your visits always brighten my day.

Oh, it's looking so lovely. I am so glad you found it :)
I have sent you a couple of email in the past couple of months and wondered if you received them?

Have a most lovely day!

I am pretty sure this is one of the ones I just ordered when I heard about her retirement plans. Or was it one of the ones I meant to order? Oh no, now I have to check!

I glad that you kept going on this even though your not loving the fabric. It still looks wonderful. I did this piece a few years ago, took it to the framers, got it home, hung it on the wall and then discovered that I didn't put the legs on the birds on the left hand side. What a head slap moment!!! But I never took it apart, I just wait to see if anyone mentions it and so far they haven't! LOL

The CHS design looks great and you're right there is too much done to get hung up with it being on 14 count it'll still look great when it's done :-)

That's a beautiful WIP, Sherry! I love finding little WIPs I've forgotten about... especially if I've made good progress on it. ;)
