I worked on "Embroidery Guild" a little bit more yesterday and then I decided I wanted to stitch something with some pink in it! So I started "Quilting" by LHN from the new Little Women series.

Little Women - Quilting

I think the fabric I'm using is 32 ct. Vintage Lentil by Lakeside Linens. It was a scrap I found in my stash. And here is my little progress pic on EG. I only got a little bit of the third lady's dress stitched.

Embroidery Guild as of 6/26/08

I have been trying to keep fresh flowers in the house. They just cheer me up so much. I bought a bouquet of colorful carnations yesterday and picked out the pink ones for a smaller bouquet for next to my bed or desk. Here's one of the bright pink carnations...


We are driving down to Florida today to visit our families. We'll be staying until Monday, and I won't have access to the internet, so I'll have another update probably Tuesday. See you then! :)


  1. Your progress on both projects is really pretty! I too found a piece of fabric that I had gotten that was just the right size and I am using it. I found an older Crescent Color of Joshua Tree and it is more green so I am going to use it. This color that came with the project didn't look like it would show up very well with this fabric. I hope you remember your Ott Light when you come home. Have a great time and I hope all goes well for you there in Florida!


  2. EG is coming along nicely and I like the new start on Quilting - that's a gorgeous pink!

    I love fresh flowers in the house too.

    Have a fun trip to Florida and don't forget your big Ottlite.

  3. I love the pinks in Quilting - I might have to buy that one for myself!

    The carnation is lovely!

    Have a great trip to Florida!
