August 31st WIPocalypse

I can't believe it's already that time of the month!  (not THAT know what I mean!)

I just bought over 500 skeins of floss so I'm itching to get them all sorted out!!  
So here's my quick update for the past few months (I missed the first August update):

SK Seasons Spring by Nadia Strelkina - Heaven and Earth Designs:

I finished this piece for a very good friend of mine.  I didn't post any progress pictures, and really I finished it in July...but I've been waiting to put any pictures up until after I gave it to her.

Started 05/21/2012: Finished 07/14/2012:

Tamlin (new start) as of 08/19/2012:

Cathedral as of 08/23/2012:

Wings as of 08/29/2012:

I feel like I've left something out that I worked on since the last update...but my mind is drawing a blank!!

Before I run to play with floss....I wanted to give a BIG THANK YOU to Kim of Scully's Cross Stitching.  She was giving away some of her Teresa Wentzler stash and sent me the discontinued Best of Teresa Wentzler Sampler Collection.  

Here are just a few of the gorgeous samplers found inside:

Thank you again, Kim!   I'm still oggling and drooling over the book....I can't decide which to start first!!

Hope everyone has a fun filled weekend!!

I love seeing your HAED work. Enjoy playing with your floss.

Samplers, Silks and Linens said...

Its always nice to see a finished HAED - they are so easy to start but finishing them - not so
I have always been a fan of Teresa's designs - which one do you think you will start?
