Finally An Update

My September stitching schedule was completely unsuccessful. I didn't stitch on Love With A Capital L nor the Mirabilia and Passione Ricamo SALs. In fact, I only managed to finish Part 20 of Romantique Sampler last week. I had wanted to show the photos way before this but my computer went down not long after that.
Finally, after a long, arduous process of troubleshooting and reformatting which I would rather not go into, here's my long overdue post. So glad the computer problem is all behind me. Phew! Let's hope it stays that way for a very, very long time, if not forever ^.^
Here's Part 20 :)
Only one more instalment which will be sent today! I'm so excited to get this done.
Of course, there's also iStitch's Mystery SAL which I finished last weekend.
I recently got an Android phone thanks to a friend in Australia so I've been playing with it too much some. Hence not much stitching done this past week.
I'm currently working on the second block of Shepherd's Bush's She Tends. Now, wanna hear something funny? If you recall, I had a Birthday Giveaway last year which included some Crescent Colours floss? I had completely forgotten that I still need a couple of those for this design. Sigh! This is why Mikey calls me his goofball. Had to reorder them from 123 Stitch so I won't be finishing this anytime soon until my floss arrives. Double sigh!
Dear Anonymous who left a comment on my last post, please do not be embarassed to leave your name and link to your blog. We're all stitchers and there's no such thing as amateurs in my book which I'm sure many other stitchers will agree. I personally would love to have another blog to admire or as Joyce like to say, stallk :P As to answer your question, I usually buy my supplies online, be it linen, floss or charts. You can find the various links to the ONS I frequent, especially for hand-dyed fabrics at the sidebar of my blog. Please do email me if you have anymore questions. I'll be happy to answer them.
Happy Stitching!

WOW!! I just love your sampler! the rest of us...can't wait to see the finish...and that will be # 14 of my crazies! your other SAL is coming along nicely too...I saw this too late to get in on the action, but probably a good thing as I'm drowning in projects that have deadlines at the moment! Will check back soon to see your finish! *hugs*

Beautiful stitches!

Anne said...

Your sampler is coming along beautifully Veronica! I hear you about computer problems. I've had to reformat mine a couple times too. I think it's actually time for a new one! I'm glad yours is back in working order. What would we do without one?!?!?

Great progress on both your samplers! Oh boy, computer problems are such a pain! I'm glad you got them figured out.

Christine said...

Wow, Romantique Sampler is beautiful! Can't wait to see it finished. Lovely progress on your other SAL as well.

Giovanna said...

Great progress on your WIPs - Romantique is particularly amazing!

Siobhan said...

Your WIPs look great, Veronica! Sorry to hear about your computer woes. Hopefully that is a thing of the past! Congrats on your new phone! They are addictive. I have to set mine away from where I stitch or else everytime I hear it ding to say there's an email or a news alert, I drop everything to look!

Pumpkin said...

Your sampler is just turning out amazing! I love the colors. The dark blue just makes it all pop!

The little SAL is just too cute and I'm enjoying seeing this one every time you add a new section :o)
