Next is a pic of SB's Quaker Heart. I only got round to adding this to my stash about a month ago and couldn't resist doing a few stitches when it first arrived. I love the colours in this one. I am a long-time SB fan, a lot of the framed pieces on my walls are of the older SB band samplers and I just love the colours they use in their designs. While I don't plan to concentrate solely on this one for the next little while I think it will work up quite quickly.

Finally, let me share a WIP. I am attempting to stitch the relevant Plum Street Samplers Quaker Calendar for each month and was managing to do quite well at keeping up with my plan until I reached the summer. Unfortunately then I hit a blip and they were put to one side for a little while. So, yes, I'm working on the September one, the one for October is but a glint in my eye and we'll not think about November just yet! However, I have to say, this is probably the first 'series' that I have started out in January determined to stitch one each month and I've managed to sort of keep on track and not fall by the wayside around March! So far I have up to June finished as pinkeeps and have them displayed in a bowl. Okay, yes, I am somewhat behind on finishing them as pinkeeps but, hopefully in the not too distant future I'll set aside a 'finishing' day and get a few more put together.

So, that's what's been going on in my part of the world lately. In amongst Quaker Hearts and Quaker Calendars I'm deciding on a Christmas ornament to stitch for an exchange and I'd like to try and make a decision today on which one to work on and get started on it.
Until next time ......
