SDW Week 11

SDW Sampler

I should have stitched the unfinished flower motif above and to the right of the church, I only have a small section to complete from last week. However, I was so worried about my MIL that I needed something I could stitch on autopilot so the church was ideal.

Whoever SDW was she was certainly a lover of BIG motifs.

I find it very hard to put SDW away each week but I have been good and she is tucked away safely on her rods. Jane Atkinson is back on the frame ready for this evening' s session.

I have been busy this morning printing off and cutting up the names for the draw tomorrow. It is a BIG day we have three lovely prizes. If you haven't already posted you need to today and if you have not commented on this post you will be missing out the chance to win a super bonus prize.

Hi Nicola! Hope everything is ok with your MIL. SDW is so pretty. Each section is lovely! I don't know how you have the discipline to put her away although having beautiful Jane to work on makes it easier, I'm sure!

Beautiful stitching Nicola. The flower section is gorgeous.
I'm in awe of how you have more than one big project on the go at the same time!

I looked SDW up on the Scarlet Letter site - this sampler is huge! No wonder the motifs are big.

I can't believe how fast you work!

You are making such great progress on this sampler. I know that sometimes filling in something can be restful as we don't have to think too much about what we're stitching. I hope your MIL is doing okay.
