Quick WIP Update

DS woke this morning saying his throat was still hurting so I kept him home from school again. I suspect he would have been fine to go but under my dragon-like exterior I really am a softie :)

Anyway, here is the current state of play of a couple of projects I've been working on recently ...

Wiehenburg 2008 Quaker Mystery SAL

I'm still quite a ways behind on the Quaker Mystery but the summer holidays are fast approaching and I expect I will get quite a bit done then. We have no real holiday plans at this stage - may go away for a couple of weeks in August if we can find someone to look after the dog.

After much dithering and dathering I finally started on Periphaeria's Mystery Spanish Sampler - I was planning to use a HDF silk but couldn't decide which one I liked. In the end I decided to use DMC Colour Variations #4210, one strand over one thread on black 25 count lugana. Yes, I'm insane!

Periphaeria Designs Spanish Sampler Mystery 2008 SAL

Off to check on the patient - told him he is well enough to do some revision but I don't think much of that is happening!

Your Quaker mystery is looking gorgeous Mel. I must admit I'm very tempted to join this but I don't think I can justify another big design! lol!

Nice start on the Spanish mystery sampler.

Hope your DS is better soon.

Your quaker is coming along beautifully ... as for the Spanish sampler you took the words right out of my mouth - over one on black? Yep, the word insane came to my mind too!!! ;)
