Finally an Update

Hi blogging friends.  Thank you for all the wonderful comments on my last post.  They are greatly appreciated.  I decided a month ago to work on a WIP doing one strand a day and one day a week.  I picked The Library by LHN.  That lasted for two weeks.  I realized that the county fair was only 2 months away and I better get with the program.  Here is a pic of The Library.

I have also decided not to do Anniversaries of the Heart series by Blackbird Designs.  Its just way to big and has a lot of over 1 stitching that don't work on 14 ct fabric.  I have the first 9 charts if anybody is interested in purchasing them.  I started another picture in its place.  Here is a pic.

Neighborhood Row - Bent Creek - 14 ct lt. fiddler

So, I decided I want to crochet at least 6 afghans, a shawl and a doll dress for a 13" doll to enter in the fair.  I have until July 23 to complete them.  But, I also decided that I want to enter America, Land That We Love in it also.  There is a square for your name and Completed On.     How neat would it be to complete it on July 4?  As you can see, I still need to bs around the squares and I am also going to bs around the letters and stars.  (You can click on any picture to enlarge and click on the enlargement to enlarge more.)

Here are the color changes I made:
America - 666
Stars between - 798
State names and Dates - 796 and 817
Border around ea state - 321 and 995
Outside squares on first row - 798 and 321

The bottom saying will be blue with red hearts.  I also put the stitched by and completed on in one square.  The other square  will say:  All American - Baseball - Hot Dogs - Apple Pie.  I will be either hearts or stars or both on the bottom of eash one.

I'm down to about 7 weeks  so  I better get with the program.

Thanks for looking.    Linda

Everything is looking great !! I thought last year I may enter the fair this year. I might need to start thinking about that again. It will be here before I know it!

Your stitching is moving along great. I am also doing the Libray. I am on the third section of it. Good luck on finishing it for your fair.

Linda, I love the LHN piece and the color changes you made on the America project are nice. You are using my all time favorite red--DMC 666.

Lovely stitching, Linda and I'm sure you will finish in time for the fair and "America" is going to be gorgeous with the personalisation changes you've made! The Library is lovely ~ I've been wanting to stitch that one ~ as it your Bent Creek!

And as always your Kitties are sweet!

What a busy lady your are. I think all you have planned you can finish in time for the fair and only wish I could be there to see the results of your labor. Keep plugging away at it. So sorry you will not be doing the AofH series; but I do understand.
Take care and please post again when you have an update.
