A slightly better start to May

So, I have been a bit more in a stitchy mood so far in May. I have been a bit busy, but I at least am starting to feel like I am making progress again.

To start off the week, I pulled out my Bordeaux Sampler again. I really did make progress on it, even though it might not look like it. Tons of green backstitching and a multitude of Rhodes grapes.

I also spent some time on Wednesday stitching on Stargazer. I didn’t make any visible progress on her this past week so I didn’t bother with a pic. I hope to make a bunch of progress this week as I really enjoyed working on her again.

Then over the weekend, I spent my time getting a start on my Neighborhood Round Robin. I really hate basting, so I have been doing a little at a time and it really drains my stitching energy. I did manage to baste one whole block so that I could at least make a start on my portion of the piece. I chose to do the house and tree from Lady Scarlet by Lilybet Designs. Here is my meager start. Now that I am finished with Barnabee, Friday nights are going to be reserved for Round Robins and Exchanges. I will have very busy Fridays as my neighborhood has to be mailed on June 1 and I have a birthday exchange and our Dragon RR due to go out on July 1. I had better get stitching:)

Here is my start on Lady Scarlet. My RR is stitched on 40 ct Creme Brulee linen by R and R Reproductions. It is an absolutely stunning color.
