Memorial Wednesday

Here is my progress on "In Memory"


I'm using Vicki Claytons HDF, and I am really liking the conversion.  It's not EXACT, but close enough for my taste.  This is 11 days progress, and I am really enjoying it so far.  My biggest challenge, of course, is the extra fabric.  I don't have a scroll rod or a stand, so my hoop tends to be quite heavy.  I don't dare cut the excess until I have reached each corner so I will know for sure where to cut.  I'll plug along for now.

A very nice lady out there in blogland (BeckySC) announced recently that she is hosting a BAP SAL, with certain requirements (found here), and if you finish by December 31, 2012, you will be entered into a drawing for a $100 GC for stash!  I figured since I met the requirements, I may as well enter.  She has over 100 participants, so winning a GC is a long shot, but it's nice to know I have lots of company stitching large projects!

I am also posting progress on the Remembrance SAL thread on the 123 stitch message board.  I am kind of co-hostessing this SAL with another very kind lady who is a member of the board.  We encourage anyone who wants to stitch a piece in memory of a loved one to join in and post progress.  It's nice to be able to share memories and stories about my Mom.

Your WIP is just lovely, the blues are especially pretty!

It's a beautiful start, Kat.

I stitched Lavender & Lace's "Angel of Mercy" following my daughter's passing - it turned out beautifully, and occupies pride of place in my living room, above the mantel.
