Sunday stitching update!

Cross those stitches.

Hey, remember those? Yeah. I hadn't been cross stitching much because it seemed like a bad idea with a bitty kitten around, but I've been missing it, so I started up again. Just being very, very careful.

As I've mentioned, I'm using a system in which I work on one project for 10 hours and then rotate to another. So this week I finished my first ten hours on the Teacup Quilt:


And then I got a few stitches into my new project, Teresa Wentzler's Noah's Ark Samper. Sorry for the poor quality of the photo. I'm not used to taking WIP pictures in daylight!

Oh, I love the little teacups! That makes me want to go dig through my cross stitch UFOs. I haven't done that in a quite a while. If I recall correctly, I think I have a Paula Vaughn quilt project about half done. And a Teresa Wentzler nativity scene in some state of startedness.

Nice work! I love Teresa Wentzler, hope you'll post your progress. I did two of her big English Garden samplers years ago - very challenging, but so satisfying!

the teacups looks good! i saw some lightening mcqueen sets at michaels the other day and was wishing i still knew how to do that (i was taught as a kid but i tried to do it again and couldn't figure it out maybe someday when there isn't so much going on at my feet?!)

I have a cross stitch kit that I bought almost two years ago. I should put it in my UFO list!

The link to the Noah's Ark is neat! I really want to see yours better now.

Cute little teacups, how big will it be when it's all done? I was just wondering since you said quilt. When I think quilt I think bed sized. Nosy Arleta!

Just the thought of trying to do a Wentzler with its eighty-seven-gazillion different floss colors when there's a kitten in the room is very very scary to me. Which reminds me, there's a half finished Wentzler peacock wanting attention in my UFO collection.

Oh that *is*cute. Maybe I should resume my cross-stitching.
