Sarah Elizabeth Brooke 1842

Greetings friends and happiest of New Year to you all.....

We are still here at the coast of South Carolina for a brief stay before work resumes on Tuesday, but I did want to share what I have been working on the past several days...


I have been laying some bricks.....and planting a little grass with Sarah.....

Sarah Elizabeth Brooke 1842
The Scarlett House
40 ct Lakeside Vintage Meadow Rue
Belle Soie silks as recommended





Here is how things stood with her at the end of October when I sat her down to work on Christmas stitches.....



Like many of you, I am formulating my 2012 list of wants and to-do's...I have penciled mine down and hope to finalize things in the next couple days....It's an aggressive  list....And, fortunately I already have alot of the supplies on hand.....So, we will see!!!

I hope everyone has a great week as we all try to ease back into our normal routines...

Take care......((hugs)) from me to you~~~

Faye

Beautiful sampler you are working on! Isn't it fun to make stitching plans for the new year? I have a mental list, but will put it in writing sometime this week. Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! Yup, Christmas stitching derailed me too, although it was worth it. Your Sarah Liz is beautious! I've started her too, and now I'm off to get her out.

You've made good progress! She's a beauty isn't she? No sense my making a list for 2012 since I have a habit of losing lists. Best wishes for the new year.

Marion said...

Beautiful stitching! I am tempted to do this one as well, as my youngest is Sara Elizabeth.....
We will see.
I am just able to comment on Blogs again after months of not letting me...maybe the fact that I updated my Blog today had something to do with that!!!
Happy New Year to you!!!

You better not let any contracters see how fast you lay bricks, they will steal you away from your stitching. Great work as usual!
