Progress and New Stash!

This is my progress on Vervaco's Temptation. I have stitched and unpicked and stitched and unpicked the left arm this week more than I can say and I have to say that I still don't think it is absolutely right but I couldn't find my mistake but I still love stitching it.



My new stash is via Lisa at http://lisasneedlesandthreads.blogspot.com/ who brought two Little House Needleworks Winter Band Samplers so I swapped with her a chart I had that she wanted.



Thank you for your best wishes for my son, he is now back to normal.

Until next time, happy stitching

Temptation is looking lovely & I'm sure that no one would ever be aware that there is a mistake on there somewhere.
Really like the Winter Band Sampler but then I like all LHN :-)

Lovely stitching! Glad to hear that your son is doing well :)

Temptation looks gorgeous. If you don't tell anyone there's a mistake I daresay they'll never notice. I love the LHN chart too.

It's very beautiful. I don't think I could ever do anything that difficult. I can't wait to see it finished.

Rhona said...

Wow! That looks fantastic. Looking forward to more updates.

Denise said...

Very pretty. You're really coming along this. Makes me want to pull mine out to work on.

Temptation is making really good progress and if you couldn't find your mistake I don't think anyone else will either, it's too pretty to notice any mistakes!
Lovely new chart, I always like a red house in a design. Happy to hear your son is fit and well again xxx

Great progress on your WIP and nice stash too :) Glad that your son is better now.

Sally said...

Fantastic progress Lesleyanne.

Love your new LHN. I'm getting this later in the year as my surrogate sis Lisa is trading it with me :)

Glad your son is better.

Wow she is very pretty. I'm sure if you continue on stitching you will then find where you made a mistake.

Crystal said...

Beautiful so far

Joysze said...

Oh honey.... I don't think one could tell where the mistake on her arm is. She looks sooooo pretty. :D

Glad to hear that your son is doing great.

P/S. I added you to the International Hermit and Stitch Day list cos yanno.... Sunday as a Hermit Day works too! ;)

Temptation looks fabulous, I can't even imagine how many hours work has gone into it already. I notice many bloggers keep a note of how many hours a design takes, but I think if I did it I would scare myself!
LHN Winter Band Sampler is on my wish list, it looks like such a therapeutic stitch, one to pick up when a de-stressing is required!!!

Temptation is looking good, and I couldn't see anything wrong at all... but know how annoying it is when you can't find where things have gone wrong. I usually then enlarge my working copy and mark off the stitches as I go, painfully slow but usually works! LOL
Happy Stitching

I saw this update on the 2011 SAL blog as well and thought that it looked gorgeous on there as well. I agree, you can't see if there is a mistake on there, so I say run with it. Looks brill!

Carol said...

Nice progress, Lesleyanne! So glad to hear your son is doing better, too :)

You're making great progress and she is already looking fabulous.
The band sampler is a lovely design. A bit of light relief from working on the big piece maybe?

Tempation looks beautiful. Look forward to seeing it finshed. Don't know whether I would be able to have more than one chart on the go at a time. Maybe I will give it a go someday. Well done you.
