And now back to our regularly scheduled program ...

What little stitching I have been doing has been on Plum Street Sampler's Be True.  Though I have been checking my counts very carefully as I complete the rice stitch part of the border, I still haven't found the spot where I miscounted by one thread.  So, I haven't needed to frog quite yet.  That necessity remains a future delight.  I am including a progress shot just to prove I haven't completely ceased to stitch.  I am well aware that my record these past few months has not been particularly impressive and am anxious to prove that I am stitching.  Really, I am!

I also want to get back to some finishing.  I have cut the boards for the front and back of the needle case from the Stitcher's Hideaway and I have been browsing through fabric to convert some other finishes into totes.  And, then there are all those old jeans that need to be reduced to strips for braiding into a rug.  I anticipate a busy weekend.  Please forgive the dark photo, it was still quite overcast this morning/

This is looking fantastic - hope you won't have to do too much frogging.

Borders are not my favourite, I hold my breath when it comes to the matching up part lol

It's looking good and maybe you can get away without having to rip anything out. I should try making some bags too to mount stitching on...another good idea vs the expense of framing.

I am two weeks behind in reading my blogs, so this might be too late but... save the side seams from those jeans too. Wound around and around, they make great coasters. Saw that somewhere online, and it works! Hugs!
