Being stuck in the house has some advantages! I can sit and stitch with no guilt. Luckily for me the bad stuff has passed, so it's back to my normal schedule..darn it.

But there's been some progress.  This is the Plateau. Almost finished with the stitching.

Obviously I found a tray. Exact size, too. Found it at Hobby Lobby. This is the fabby, too. I've used the rose fabric before and I just love it. I saw the polka dot fab staring me in the face, so I bought it thinking I may use it for trim--maybe.

I've finished the stitching on one (of the 12) Helga Mandl biscornus. I chose a lighter fabric and ended up changing a couple of colors and doing some back stitches. It's smaller than I thought, but I'll get over it!
I'd like to find some buttons to use on all of them--to kind of bring them together.

I really haven't done much on the Red Thread except finish the last two pictures. It's a really nice piece.

My favorite! The Family Sampler. Great progress. All the family is in, including my Linzie and Marley and Annabell. I tried to get the colors as close to the personalities as possible--including the LSU colors!

Garden Prive. Putting in all those little squares is BORING!!

So that's it on the home front. Happy Stitching to all of you. And stay healthy.

That's a lot of stitching! Good for you. Making the squares for Garden Prive may be boring, but what goes in them sure looks nice.

Lots of stitching, the family sampler is wonderful.

The 15 sided biscornu from Jardin Prive will be so effective when completed, it'llmake all the boring bit seem worthwhile

Looks like you have some really nice projects going there. I haven't done needlework for a long time but getting in the mood to get back to it.
