Midnight Watch and SAL

This is the piece I was trying to finish at our Stitching Day.  I finally got it done and will most likely drop it off at the framer next week.  I enjoyed the colors and fabric but it was a labor intensive stitch.  I like a quick fix and this wasn't it.  Carol and I decided to do BBD peacock pinkeep as a SAL so if you guys have it and want to stitch it as well please join in.  Carol has the alphabet band finished and I haven't started yet.  I am trying to decided if I want to switch the threads colors after all has anyone seen a red peacock??  Anyways I posted a pic before I start and I will try to post once a week with progress.

Hi Everyone!  Sorry to miss our last stitching day.  I got tied up with family that I hadn't seen in a really long time and Dov threw me under the bus.  He volunteered my to take my cousins boys overnight so they could have more time with my boys.  I enjoyed my time with them but desperately needed my stitching day.  I hope everyone is doing well.  I would love to see pics of what you are working on.  I here Paula has some finishes and Denise I would love to see your tablecloth.  Cathy, what are you up to these days??  I know you decided on another stitching day, but I don't have the email anymore and in my absent mindedness I didn't write it down.  (menopause I think, that's my story and I'm sticking to it)  Please refresh my memory.  I hope to see all of you soon.

Singing the Blues by Little House Needleworks

This is the piece I started at our stitching day last Sunday (Was that only a week ago???). Fun, easy stitch. The colors on my piece look a lot more muted than they did in the chart photo, but I still like it. Paula, we're still waiting to see the pieces you finished last week!
