Marion Progress!

I have been stitching away on Marion and here is where I am up to.  The tree and animal down the bottom I have to buy thread for, so until that arrives I can only finish up the grass and then she will have to wait to be finished.


I also pulled these other charts from my stash and they will hopefully be worked on throughout the year, aswell as my plan to start on LHN's Little Neighbourhood.  I wanted to make a start on my Carriage House "Alphabet Blocks" too but the threads are only in GAST with no conversions, so this one might have to take a backseat until I can afford to buy all the GAST threads.


Carriage House - Sarah Spurr
Goode Huswife - Home Sweet Home
La-D-Da - Bo Peep
All Through The Night - Use What Talents You Possess

Until next time, happy stitching
Lisa

Love your projects....if you want to try and convert the sampler threads, go to the Stitcher's Village website and click on their library...there will be a " book" where you can find conversions. It would be a good place to start...if you can't find it, let me know and I"ll send you the link. Good luck!

Lovely work on Marion. Nice designs you are going to start. I will send yo an email with the floss conversions for the Alphabet Blocks. I have the vhart with all the letters in the one chart and it has provided the conversion. I am only using the GAST thread for the background behind the words.

Lovely stitching Lisa and I lvoe your choice of charts - I think the Homne Sweet Home one looks wonderful x

Oh it's great to see Marion nearly accomplished. I'll start her today and I think she will be a fun stitch. I chose a couple of overdyed threads that I have in my stash, some are the ones the chart recommends, the others are just what seemed similar in colour.
I love your choices of me-stitch-charts, lol. Happy new stitching year.

I'm so far behind on blog reading and commenting that you may have Marion complete - she's certainly looking lovely! And now I may have to look for more stash - love your Home Sweet Home and Use What Talents patterns.
