Below is My Favorite Things by The Drawn Thread. It's in my dining room right now and gets shuffled around when a new project gets framed. The framing on this was done at Wonders of Wildlife and reminds me of how it must feel to park your Mercedes in front of your mobile home. The sampler is simple and didn't take long to stitch but the framing includes a large fillet, a scrumptious linen mat, and an overpriced frame. I will not disclose how much I paid to have it framed but it kept the store in business for that week. They are now closed partly because I came to my senses and had my framing done at Michael's for a while after that.

Here is another project that is hanging on my wall. It was stitched when my son was a toddler. My husband and I went to Chicago to a Bull's game (Michael Jordon was extraordinary to watch) but I insisted that we stop at a cross-stitch shop and so The Earth Gatherer's by Shepherd's Bush was on it's way to a good home.
shapeshifters, and various other "supes" that Sookie keeps encountering. She is always in trouble! Last night I downloaded the book onto my iPad and a plan must be made. Read at work, stitch at home! Yes, that is the plan. I hope my boss won't mind! Until next Thursday, happy stitching ladies!

Here is this week's progress on ATS. The tree is coming up and there are lots of color switches so I may use 2 or 3 needles at a time for that. This is the end of 8 weeks and the total stitching time is 78 1/2 hours. Whew!
