Stitching pics.

Just a quick post now that the munchkin is gone off to bed to share my most recent stitching progress.

I am now about 3/4 done with German Garden. I really like the bottom half of this piece. It has some neat specialty stitches.

Over the weekend I spent some time working on Nathaniel’s birth sampler. I am now mostly done with bands 8-10. All that is left in those bands are the bees and ladybugs, but I think I am going to save all of them until last so I only have to pull out the detailed charts once.


In other news, our cat Cooper is now Internet-famous. Allen got a great picture of him several weeks ago. He added a cute caption and submitted it to After several weeks of thinking that it wasn’t a cool enough picture, we went to the site and who was at the top of the page…Cooper. If you like cute cat/animal pictures, visit the site. As of today, Cooper’s Dramatic Cat picture has moved to page two, but check him out. I think the fame is going to his head though. He asked if we could call him an agent!!!



  1. Both of your WIPs are gorgeous Leslie! I just love the little squirrels by the clock on the baby sampler.

  11. Congratulations to Cooper! And, wow, what a treat to see your German Garden. I feel a little guilty that I haven’t opened my box since CATS! And the baby sampler… if I were still eligible to get pregnant, I think I would consider it just to be able to stitch it too! LOL!

  12. I don’t think I have ever said hello before. Lovely projects. The birth sampler will be so pretty!
