I've been working on the Oatlands Mystery Sampler. So far, so good, but I'm learning to dislike the very Williamsburgy colors I chose. Normally, I would really like those colors. But somewhere along the line, my tastes seem to have changed. They are very, very, very bland. I like the colors Donna chose for her sampler, but I'm not sure I could live with them for a long term project.

I have finished stitching all of the projects I selected for the January challenge. Now I need to do some finishing work. Good thing I didn't include finishing in my challenge. I have some projects from 2008 that need finishing work.

I am currently stitching Easter projects that didn't get finished before Easter. I have a chart from Trinity Designs that I am working up for each of the grand kids. Maybe they will get them next Easter. That might give me time enough to do the finishing work ... maybe not.

I also have a couple of other goodies in the works. One is a version of a Cluny tapestry. I tried doing it on gauze, but the eyes and the gauze didn't work together, so I am now doing it on a piece of 40 count fabric I had. I haven't gotten very far, but I just restarted yesterday. I will post a picture when I have enough done that you can see that there is something actually stitched. Another piece in progress is an Ink Circles piece - Circque de ... forgot the French word ... circus of diamonds. It was designed to be done in one color, but I am filling in the centers of the diamonds in colors. Pictures later.

Tomorrow is Cinco de Mayo, so obviously we had Mexican tonight. Someday I might actually get it together.

Loudoun Sampler Guild is having what sounds like fantastic field trip. But, I'm not going. Sniff.

Happy Cinco de Mayo, Happy Mothers' Day. And happy anything else that comes along before I get back.
