Hello there!

I have had sick girls for THREE WEEKS! It was pretty bad. Everyone seems to be doing well at the moment; DH and I actually went away alone for Memorial Weekend. I have not gotten much schooling or stitching done lately. I re-started school on Tuesday, and things are going well. Things will be even better when the reorganization of the school room is complete. It started this morning when a stack of books slid into my coffee cup which spilled everywhere. If you cannot find a safe spot for your coffee cup, it is time to tidy up!
Stitching has taken a back seat to gardening. Now that the plants are for the most part in the ground and happy, I have been getting the stitching back out.

You would think the above design was a finish, wouldn't you? Well, I need to stitch a B after Michele and also stitch the antlers on that deer. This is who I am. I get right up to the end, and well......
My mom gave me Earth Sampler for my birthday. I am not sure why the rabbit is supposed to be Pomegranate. My pomegranate is distinctly pink.
I will probably wish that I had done all four squares of Jeanne d' Arc. I just don't know that I can stitch that much brown. I could always do the other squares and have them framed separately, I guess.

Check out Primitive Needle's website for corrections to the Earth Sampler chart. The bunny is definitely not supposed to be stitched in Pomegranate.

Thanks for the tip, Karen! I had already chosen "Walnut."
