After I got the bargello section finished on Dorothy Walpole, I moved on to the piece I have been working on for my future DIL's birthday. I've been carrying it around as my stitch group piece for a while now and it was time to get it finished, so I did!!

Then, I decided to start something off my bucket list. I have pulled this one out more than once just over the past year and each time put it back thinking the time wasn't right. So, I made it the right time and just got it started. I love this piece and although it will definitely be a long term project, at least now it is underway.

Then, as if that wasn't enough, I decided to finish this piece for my Mom. She is in a nursing home now and has little in her room in the way of decoration. I thought I would finish it with an edge so she could use it on a table as a scarf. As you can see, I've started it twice. The first time, I used a linen that was too heavy and the pulled work didn't open up the way it was supposed to. I switched it to a more open weave linen and I like the effect much better!
This is an EGA correspondence course our guild did last year and since I had the issue with the linen, I didn't get it finished in time for the review and it has languished ever since.
So, that is what has been going on here. I haven't worked on my SALs this month at all, except for Dorothy, so I am behind with those now. And since I have added 2 more pieces to the rotation, something is going to have to give. I think I will have to work on a couple of things until they are completed to get the rotation back to a manageable size and then play catch up with the SALs. Sounds like a good plan to me!!
It is IH&SW and I haven't been able to put fabric, thread and needle together yet so I think I will go do that now. Happy Easter and happy stitching to you all!!
