Some days I'd lose my head if it weren't attached. I forgot the other three projects. It took a little while to find photos, so here goes:

Three Pumpkins by Prairie Grove Peddler
I've had this kitted for awhile--planned to have it done by this past fall. Best laid plans! Anyway, it's ready to go. Not in the mood for fall right now but when the weather gets really warm here, I'll be ready to stitch.

Dans mon jardin by Jardin Prive

I love the French designers! And it can be difficult sometimes to find patterns. And it's always a help if the directions are also written in English. On the bright side, my French vocabulary is growing.
This is a biscornu, which is one of my most favorite things to do. I've started it. It is a bit repetative, so I work on it awhile and leave it sit awhile. Lovely colors!

Plateau de Brodeuse by Grilles de Maryse

Next to the Family Sampler, this is my favorite stitchy piece.I loved it the first time I saw it and then began the effort to find it. The stitching is maybe half done. It is simple and moves quickly. Even putting it together won't be difficult. I haven't found any matching fabby yet-haven't really looked--and the tray is a specific size, so maybe my luck will hold and I can find one.

Okay. Now I can rest a little. Got it all down!

See ya'll later.

I love all of your projects!! I love that Family Sampler. I'm not so crazy about LHN's people but I just love that sampler and some of her other recent releases. Can't wait to see some WIP pics of it!

Siobhan said...

...and by LHN people I mean the way the stitched people look!! Gulp. I figured I should clarify that statement!

What a lovely background etc to your blog Marian, i do like it

I'm way behind yet again, this cough/cold certainly is cutting into my computer time, i seem to be spending most of the time snoozing!

Lots of lovely projects for me to watch grow, you have chosen some beautiful designs. Well done on the framing. Linzi does look so cute and adorable.
