WIP and Thank You!

Firstly, I would like to thank Nicola and Marsha so very much for the gift of the "Animals From Early Samplers" book which I won in one of last months draws.  It is a wonderful book full of counted thread charts of insects, animals and birds with DMC and silk information.  I know I will get a lot of use from it so thank you so much.

Also, the photo shows my very crumpled and limited progress on the Gardner Pocketbook.  The strange looking unstitched circles at the top are the areas for initials and the date.  As I'm planning to use this as a stitching pocket, I haven't yet decided whether to put the charted initials and date, or mine, or both so I will probably leave that part until the end.

It is a very relaxing stitch and is just the right project for winter nights when I'm tired after a busy day at work.

I hope everyone else is enjoying following these two blogs as much as I am.   The achievements and talents of the stitchers here, coupled with Marsha's amazing samplers are truly inspirational.
Kind regards

It's good to see your progress on this design, I do like it and need some inspiration to get going with my start on it. I think this is just the push I needed.
