Workbasket's Quaker Sampler. I am really pleased with the progress made on this. I finished the gold motif and the two letters, C & D, stitched in gold. I see this piece becoming a year-long companion, with one motif and its companion letters worked each month. Since this piece is being done on 40ct linen, it's not a candidate for a travel piece. I can only work on it in very good light ... so I'll be tethered to my Ott light when working on this,
And since this will be a long weekend due to Martin Luther King Day, I'll be deferring the first Crazy January start to return to my stitching rotation, Sue Hillis' Cookie Santa, till Monday. I was hoping to work through the challenge projects in chronological order but some of the flosses and fibers I ordered way back in mid-December for a few of the projects [notably, The Ice Dragon's Kingdom and Black'd Skie] are still on back order. I expect I'll have to do some skipping about. Not a hardship ... I really love all the pieces I selected for the challenge and will be delighted to return to each and every one of them.
