JCS 1707 Progress

It's been too long since I have posted here! I hope everyone is well and happily stitching on your samplers.  I have had a wee bit of trouble with the Frog Prince with JCS so I have only a wee bit done.  Life has also been so busy lately that stitching hasn't been happening very much.  But without further ado, here's my progress on JCS.

I had decided to photograph him as how he would look if he were not upside down! His plumage has been difficult for me to stitch for some reason.  Perhaps it was because I had a lot of reports to write and couldn't focus on stitching.  Thankfully, reports are finished and Spring Break is coming so I'll have more time to devote to stitching him! 

We have had a very late spring this year and only now are the crocuses starting to bloom.  It's nice to have winter behind us now and a pretty spring to look forward to. 

Take care everyone! I love what everyone is stitching and am really loving those band samplers.  I might just have to buy one this year!!

Lovely start on your peacock! I love this pattern and will look forward to seeing your progress through it. I hope to see some pretty flowers where I live soon too! Thank you for sharing!

I am so looking forward to seeing this sampler being stitched. It is a new one for me.

Spring is a lovely time to start a sampler with so much new life starting all around.

I know everyone is ready for spring. Maybe except those of us who live in Florida, it soon becomes hot hot HOT.... You are doing wonderful with JCS and some of us are with you as well, not having a lot of time to stitch. I got to stitch the two weeks, while visiting mom in Ohio. Since returning, I haven't had the time to pick up a needle. With company arriving on Friday, it will probably be another two weeks.....

Very pretty! Will look forward to your progress. This is a new one for me as well. I am hoping Spring is coming soon. Today it is actually supposed to be 61...but we are having another chance of snow in two days. Fingers crossed that will not happen!!
