Here is my progress from the weekend on Baroque. I jumped around a bit having decided that moving to a different area to keep going rather than forcing myself to do an area I was less than enthused about was a better idea to make progress. I'm not likely to have this finished for my November goal with all the time I took out for my Mom's birthday gift but that's ok, its still showing some good progress so I'm happy with that.

I'm also getting Poirot ready to stitch. Mondays I stitch at a Needlepoint shop and I have no small canvas pieces to take along, that seemed like as good an excuse as any to start yet another project :) I am considering switching my large canvas to Twister for December. Of all my WIP's that is the one I most want to see done, I was SO excited to start that one, but with all the laying of threads and the compensating of stitches plus the fact that its done on congress cloth, progress has been much slower than I had anticipated.

I hope everyone had a great weekend and holiday if you were celebrating. I know I did, I took advantage of having Friday off to go pick up my new car !! I decided the Day after Thanksgiving day sales were just not a place for me to be as I work retail for 12 years, 7 of them in a major discount retailer so I know how crazy it can be and there was nothing that spectacular that I felt I had to go.


  1. Congratulations on the new car! It looks good on you. ;) And Baroque is coming along nicely. Keep up the great work.

  2. I love Baroque. Your stitching is just lovely. I swing back and forth between cross stitch and needlepoint and for the past 3-4 months I've been solely cross stitching. But.. the needlepoint bug has bitten and I'm working on a pillow for my daughter and enjoying every second of it. Will post pics when I have bit more done.

  3. The Baroque is looking so wonderful! I just love it and you are doing fantastic!

    CONGRATS on the new car! I love it and I am sure that you do!!

    Wonderful car!!! Congrats!
    I was wondering how long it would take you to give into Poirot. I lasted 2 days. :-)
    And...I agree with the others...Baroque is lovely.

  5. Wow-that piece is absolutely beautiful!

  6. I love all those fibers! They're so vibrant. You're making good progress.

  7. Wow - Baroque is a very, very pretty project!
