At the end of last year, when I was making plans for this year's stitching, I kitted about a dozen charts. With Thy Needle and Thread is one of my favorite designers and Brenda's Needleworker's Sampler was in that stack just calling out my name! I didn't start it right at the beginning of the Olympics since I was finishing up my SAL stitching but not too shortly after, I think about the 10th.
Since I am doing this as a combo report, I hope this will make sense in the end!! This is how far I had gotten by the start of IH&SW which was this past weekend. I thought I would be farther along than I was by then but actually watching the events really slows things down!!

And this is what the whole thing looks like now. So, so cute and I just love the border!!
It is close to the end, just the verse and the bottom of the border. I hope to have it finished in the next couple of days. We are supposed to have a snow day on Wednesday so that should give me the time I need to wrap it all up.
I was also going to give my Stitch From Stash report but I think I will save that for next time. Lets just say I was NOT a good girl like so many others!!
