Weekend Progress Report: April 3, 2011

This has been a somewhat easier week than the past four. Things are settling down to a more normal pace, thank the Lord. As a result, I did get in a bit more stitching than I have been able to manage in the past little while.

But before I get to the stitching I would like to announce the winner of my little stitching limerick challenge: And here is the winning limerick, so clever and witty that my husband preferred it even above my own [which, of course, was not entered in the competition].

There once was a stitcher named Rita

Who drank a strong margarita

Then she put on her blog

What she did to the frog

And now she's a target of PETA

by Rita E in AZ

I have to confess, that this was my favorite entry as well. I'll be notifying her on Monday morning and asking the folks at 123stitch to forward her the gc asap. I want to thank all who participated in my little limerick challenge ... I found it all very amusing ... we stitchers are very clever, creative and inventive folk. Would it be too over the top to pump my fist in the air several times chanting, "Stitchers rule!"?

Crazy January Challenge Projects:

Day 3: Homespun Elegance's The Stitcher is progressing nicely. I worked on this piece on and off throughout the day and have more than half the sampler motifs completed ... just another 18 letters and numbers and motifs to go, then the verse in the central box and adding the embellishments of scissor charm and mother-of-pearl buttons. I imagine this will be finished before the next weekend progress report.

2010 WIPs and UFOs

BAP: TW's The Autumn Faerie: This was my primary focus most of the week [Tuesday - Saturday] and it shows ... see yesterday's post for photos.
