Loving ES!

I am addicted to stitching Egyptian Sampler! I can't seem to put it down for long but is that really a bad thing? :) I am sure that will change once I get to the one over one stitching.


I have decided that since the SBEBB will be closing down soon that I will not be participating in any more exchanged for this year. My last exchange will be the Valentine exchange. After looking back through the year of what I did finish in comparison to what I kept and the numbers were quite low for me. I have so many things that I really want to stitch for me that I am going to spend this year spoiling myself with my finishes. Exchanging is fun but right now I just want to stitch for me!
Kim-The colors in Topaz's dress are DMC 3078, White, 318, and 415. I agree with you, the photo on the pattern makes the yellow look really bright but it isn't that way in real life.
Happy Stitching!

I think you'll enjoy stitching for yourself. That's a good goal for this year.

You've finished quite a bit on the Egyptian piece.

What is SBEBB?

i think the boards shutting have made a lot of people realise that they dont stitch enough for themselves!
You have made super progress on this already Dawn!

Wonderful progress on ES. I know what you mean about exchanges and it's the same for me even though I did stitch a few pieces for me in 2007. My last exchanges will be the winter and spring rounds for the seasonal exchange.

Great progress on ES.

I think the SBEBB was too much of a good thing and we were spoiled by the efficiency of Becky and the other mods. :)

Dawn Egyptian Sampler is looking wonderful - I can see how much you are enjoying working on it!

It looks wonderful Dawn! I can what you mean though by the backstitching. Great idea to do as you go along.

A few years ago I used to be in a LOT of exchanges. Then I got to thinking that if I just stitched pieces I enjoyed for myself, in my own time, I'd still be stitching but wouldn't have the pressure of deadlines or the worry that the intended person would/wouldn't like what I'd stitched.

So much happier now without the pressure.

I can still stitch for gifts and RAK's though, so it's all worked out well in the end. :)
