Shores and a Quaker too!

Well, here is a little post of the progress I have made this week on SoHRH...It is so much fun! I realize I am only on square 1...and ask me when I have gotton to about square 6 how I feel..right?? So, I figured I would mingle quickies as I go along...And, I came up with the doing the ....

Quaker Lady for my diversion....Just like SoHRH I am doing it on 40ct...I decided to go with GAST threads: Holly Berry and Dark Chocolate. The Holly Berry reminds me of the faded red I like to use at Christmas...just is a toned down muted red that is not too bright or not too cranberry either. Anyway, this one will be fun to migrate to when I need a change of pace...So, finally tomorrow is Friday...first week of school under my belt with the darlings....I am so looking forward to this weekend!! Happy stitching everyone!! Faye

I love your first square! I need to start mine (whining loudly).

Love your new starts. I just ordered Quaker Lady yesterday from Amy so hope to start it Monday or Tuesday. Love the Holly Berry...may have to take a second look at that color. I am planned to stitch with Poinsettia. Decisions, decisions.

You never cease to amaze me! Even with school just starting you seem to manage/accomplish so much stitching....I'm so jealous! Beautiful work FayeRaye, I was just looking at the Quaker Lady pattern just last week, I really like her, and your version, too.

Great new starts! Love your progress on both starts. I was tempted to start My Lady's Quaker too...the temptation is so hard to resist!!

Your first square is looking wonderful! Don't you just love it? And I love the Quaker piece too - I've been trying to resist it, but I don't think I'm going to be able to much longer. I really like the colors you chose for it!!

Both are beautiful Faye! I'm going to do Shores one of these years. I LOVE your Quaker Lady!

Tracey said...

I think my new goal is gonna be to keep up with you on Shores. Since I finished Block 1, I've been working on something else. As soon as that's finished, Shores will be in my hands again.

Oh, oh, I am so jealous - I just love the Quaker Lady (and Gent). I have ordered entirely too much recently and need to stop - so I haven't ordered these two. I will have to live vicariously through your wonderful work!

Jan said...

Faye, what wonderful progress! And I love the two colors you chose for your Lady Quaker!

Irma said...

I adore the colors you picked. Can't wait to see this finished. Isn't this a fun stitch?
