Wow, it's February already

Where did January go? Sorry I haven't updated in a few weeks. Work has been very busy, but that's okay, better to be busy. Here are two patterns from With My Needle's "Quaker Pattern Book" I finished recently, one finished a few weeks ago and the other finished this past Sunday:

I think this one was Chart A:


And I think this one was Chart I:


And last week, I finally got started on Peppermint Twist. First night stitching on it, I only completed a short distance of the light green border. After the last couple of evenings, here is what it looks like now:



I'm stitching Peppermint Twist with some other stitchers on the Peppermint Twist SAL blog. The start time was Jan.1, but me and a few others got a late start as we waited for either pattern or floss or fabric. I'm stitching mine on Silkweaver 32ct lugana, color is Creekstone. And like many others in the SAL, I'm using Belle Soie silks. I love the way it's looking on the fabric so far.

That's all for now, sorry for the short and sweet update. Hope everyone is having a good week so far.

PT is looking great!! I actually just started mine on Monday but haven't taken a pic yet. I only have part of the corner pointsettia done (it's on 40ct so i am going a bit slower). I also changed the red to the TUlip red in BS.
