I did manage to spend a little time with Francis Pool this week and actually made some progress on her.
With Thy Needle & Thread
I am still trying to work out my short (LOL) stitching rotation. Since Franny is moving along so well, I thought I would put her in the regular rotation and make the Peppermint Pig my stitch group carry piece. I started this one for my birthday but haven't been able to get much done on it. It seems that I frequently have a problem with the colors. I start with what is called for and then when I actually see the colors, I wind up making changes. This happened with the Pig. I bought the silk conversion when I bought the chart and didn't like the colors IRL. So I went back to the cottons and just love the brightness!

I have selected Ann Grimshaw for the next round and I think I will try to make the rotation length 5 days this time instead of three. I would like to make it a whole week but have too many things in the rotation for that. I think all the pieces need to see the light of day at least once a month and I do still have that birthday piece to finish!!
Until later, Laura
