Stitchy Update

I have avoided posting on this blog because I didn't have much to report.
 
It's not that I haven't been stitching.  It's just that when one is working on BAP's, one doesn't feel that much is accomplished :)
 
(And I still don't have a giveaway ready for my 6th blogoversary! Oh, well, another day)
 
Here's an update of the ark on Plum Street Samplers The Flood-
 

 I was using the wrong color thread for the main part of the ship! Luckily I had only used it to outline the edges, so I was able to fix the majority of the problem-yikes!


I finished working on a friend's round robin band sampler.  The theme to this one is A Walk in the Woods. The bottom band is mine. Looking very cute so far!
 
Unfortunately the band sampler I submitted to this round robin group has been lost for nearly a year :( One member of the group was moving and it has apparently disappeared into an unknown moving box.
 


Out of desperation to have a finish, I dug out this Sam Sarah design-Liberty For Me. I even have a frame for it.  For now, it'll go on the ironing board with the other items ready for finish-finishing.
  
 
I also dug out this Hinzeit Alphabet Shuttle design. I used DMC 930 (blue) for the alphabet instead of the 310 (black) that was called-for.

 
This is the shuttle that the design goes into.
 
Another new grandbaby is due this Saturday,  So soon I should have more good news to post!

Great projects.
The Flood looks intense, but oh so pretty.
Congrats on another Grand Baby!

Your ark looks amazing! That is such a huge piece and it is so pretty. Can't wait to see more. The RR is sweet but what a shame yours has been lost. That's terrible. Love the Shuttle design, too. The blue letters were a great choice. Congrats on the new baby to come!

You've been busy... that's plenty to show for it! The Ark is coming along nicely, the RR is looking cute, LOVED the Sam Sarah one, and look forward to seeing the shuttle put together... never saw one before! Hope the new grand baby has a peaceful entry into our world! :)

You have been busy. I had not seen a round robin in stitching before. A surprise how it turns out! I am looking forward to seeing the shuttle finish too.
