Start 37 and cut thru Updates

Hi Blogger Friends.  I want to thank you all for the nice anniversary and birthday wishes.

I did about 400 stitches in the Stable yesterday.  I finished the golden brown and grayish wall on the right.  Also the light grey and terracotta in the sacks.  Two strands of white in the sacks which started the very large white fence.  And I did the pitch fork and shovel blue handles.  I think next week I might try and tackle a strand or two of backstitch.  (You can click on the picture to enlarge.)


I would also like to thank all of you that voted for my anniversary and birthday starts.  Although I didn't get to start on the actual days.  Here is the final count.
1.  Cut thru Steam Train - 27        Started 9-15-13
2.  Cut thru Cottage - 18
3.  Splish Splash by Diane Arthurs - 14
4.  99 Bottles - 12
I will start the last two in the CJC2014.

Cut thru Steam Train

My husband is stitching on the cut thru Narrow Boat.  He has done very little since his last update on June 3.  But, some is better than none.

I will be starting the Cottage in the next week or so.  I want to finish Good Morning first.

You can go the SAL page at the top and see everybody's progress.
Thanks for looking.    Linda

Wow, Linda! You and John both made lots of progress! I love seeing the before and after pics on the SAL page. You have a great start on the Steam Train. I'm glad you'll start the other ones in 2014 anyway.

Happy belated birthday and anniversary. The steam train is off to a great start!

Preeti said...

Great progress!! The train project is my favourite and I am eager to see your stitching progress on it. I am going through a busy time and cross stitch demands lot of time.
