Friends of the Heart by Plum Street Samplers
Started using Anchor 403 instead of the DMC 310 and I am not happy with it at all. It seems fuzzy for some reason. I am not going to re-do it, but not sure which black I will use going forward. I am using basically DMC as I don't have the called for Gentle Arts threads, but am substituting a couple of GAST for the pomegranates because I like the variegation. I am using Ruby Slipper that is left over from some project or another and am happy with how it turned out.
Harvest Garden by Scattered Seeeds Samplings
I am not sure about this one as the entire alphabet is one over one. I am looking at this as a discipline exercise although I have not started it yet. The photo is so much different than in person. The fabric is very dark. Interesting how it photographs.
A Scottish Sampler by Down Under Designs
I have had this for so long the DMC in it is in the black paper labels (some time in the 1990s). Figured I better get going on it! I am enjoying this more than I thought I would even through it is on that really stiff Wichelt fabric that likes to fray the thread. This is a 40 count so I am doing 1 over 2.
Of course I still have other WIPs hanging around, Isaella Uffindel; The Library and Blackwater Hollow to name a few.....
Garden Club Series by Blackbird Designs that I have been collecting. I am going to do them on 32 count evenweaves from my stash using DMC 2 over 2.....my plan right now is to stitch them together once they are done, but we will see how far I get.
Am anxious to start these, but on the other hand, I really like to get some finishes done before I start even more.....

Fine Feathered Friends by Willow Hill Samplings
It has definitely been a strange and long summer so far. I am ready, like everyone else, for this year to be over....on the other hand, in some ways it has been a productive year. I hope I will look back on it with more positivity than I am feeling right now.
Stay safe, stay kind.
Thank you for visiting. i wish you all the best whatever you are doing.
