Stitching Progress

I’ve made some stitching progress on my family history sampler.



I also have nearly finished the final block in honor of John Billington, my notorious Mayflower ancestor. I want to do a bit more tweaking, but the design inspiration has been somewhat lacking. It's the 3rd block in bottom row.



I don’t think I’ll have time to completely finish the first two blocks this week because so many other things are going on – a boatload of work for my full-time job that pushes into my personal time, a baby shower, getting ready for a business trip next week, and a couple days at my brother’s ranch on Friday and Saturday. I’ll hopefully have time to post some photos from the time at the ranch to show the cattle branding and sheep shearing that is planned – not to mention some dutch oven cooking, lots of gardening, and trying out my solar oven.

A note to Linda (aka Dreamquilter): Linda, if you have sent me your snail mail address for the magazine subscription, I haven’t received it yet. Please re-send asap! My e-mail is on my profile page.

I hope everyone is enjoying spring weather. Our weather has been erratic at best – snow in the mountains is predicted for later this week!

Bye for now.

I love this sampler - it looks wonderful.

Our weather is pretty erratic around here too - I guess that's Spring, but I wish that it would calm down a little.

Wow, this is such a cool project! I'm loving how it's looking! It must be neat to know so much about your family history. No such thing here. lol!

Looks amazing Nancy! Can't wait to see more progress. I really like this idea.
I finally read your post way back on my blog about my visit to Philly. Well, I was back again this past weekend. So much fun! I would love to visit with you, you probably know all the good places to go.
If you aren't doing anything Friday evening, send me a note. I'm having a little stitch night, and would love to have you come.
Hugs.

I haven't been on much, and checked your blog for the first time in a while, and I'm very sorry you haven't gotten my info. You must think be ungrateful. I have written to ou twice, using the email from your bountiful thoughts blog, and you don't seem to be receiving it. Get back with me, maybe you write me on my email and I'll respondm surely it will get to you that way,

Hi Linda. I don't know why the e-mail isn't coming through because the e-mail on both blocks is valid. Unfortunately, I don't have your e-mail address because it isn't on your blog profile. I'll cross-post with a blog comment on your blog.

Nancy
