Comming Along Slowly

Here is how far I am on MLQ. I've been stitching alot of exchanges lately so I have only been working on her here and there.

I love seeing how far the rest of you are on her and also the ones that finished her and moving onto the Gentelman's Quaker. Beautiful work everyone!

My latest progress - getting there!

Thought I'd post a picture of where I'm at. I just have one more small motif to do near the lady's feet and then I'm doing all the alphabet rows. Hoping to get it done this week as I want to start something new on Nov 1st. My lighting is not the best - taken at night. :)

Mystery Solved

After a morning of playing "Sherlock Holmes," I figured out the mystery "brown."

It is DMC 420, yay!

I am back in stitches and rolling along once again.

Thanks for listening, and sorry for the interruption!

Whoa Nelly

Wel, l I am proud to say that I am 3/4 of the way finished with the Gentleman, however a bit of a tragedy has befallen him, well me, I ran out of my "brown" and cannot find where I wrote down the DMC color! I have searched everywhere, and sadly as I recalled posting my color list here, I changed them along the way and never noted the new numbers. I even made the choice to purchase my floss at Michael's instead of online so I don't even have a record of the purchase, oh dearie me!

How do you all keep track of your project history, such as the fiber and floss that you use along with a certain pattern?

I know I will figure out the missing color as I have narrowed it down, but for the time being my stomach knot has tightened.

On a happy note, I must say that everyone's progress and finishes are fantastic! You are all so very talented, and you all inspire me :)

Sorry for the rant, I hope no one minds, but I figured you all would be able to relate :)

My Lady is finished..

I finish her a couple days ago. Now to get her framed up. The Gentleman will have to wait for a little while.


I look forward to seeing the other finishes!

I got My Lady's Quaker finished last night! I'm very happy with how it turned out!

I ended up changing the skin color again - three times a charm right? I went with NPI 202. For a list of the other colors I used click on my name below and that will take you to my other posts. I had fun stitching along with you all! I don't plan to stitch the gentleman, so it looks like I'm done with the SAL. Good luck to all of you! :)

Lady is at least done

Again, I'm only stitching this at lunchtime at work so my progress is slow, but this is such a fun stitch I don't mind it lasting a bit longer ;)
Thanks for looking!

Finally posting some progress

I have been bad about getting anything posted here. I started in mid-September but I was concentrating on finishing my Beatrix Potter Quaker sampler by end of September so I didn't have much time for my poor Quaker Lady. I am trying to make more progress now. I can't believe how fast some of you have finished this project - I have so many projects going I am like a bee going from flower to flower LOL. I am stitching this on 40-ct linen and I seem to be slower stitching on it as I have to be more careful placing my stitches for some reason.

I am loving seeing all of the other color combinations you all have been stitching. Congratulations all!

A Start On A Gentleman

I started "A Gentleman" this weekend, and here is my progress. I chose to work him in the exact same fabric and colors as my Lady. I had a real hard time deciding on the color combination for his clothes, but this is what I ended up it coordinated well with The Lady's dress.

I am enjoying working on him as much as the Lady, what a great artist Nathalie is.

Thanks again, Petra and Amy :)

Missy's LQ Progress

Well here is my progress on Lady Quaker. I hope to finish her this month.

The colors looked a little washed in the photo. I love seeing all of the wonderful versions everyone has posted!

You ladies are awesome!
