Nothing much new to say

I've been plugging along on the Plantation. The animals finally all have grass to eat, so I'll move on to adding a couple more trees and the border. Now that I've become used to the 45ct., it's really not that much different than 40ct. It's hard to see the size because of the close up, but it's really not a very big sampler. I'm very happy with the color changes that I made.

It really is coming along beautifully. I was browsing some shops today and spotted another Canterbury design--my poor brain is tired, and can't remember what shop or what design. Duh. (It'll come to me.) But I do remember thinking you'd like it, as I did.

it's gorgeous Tanya! But OMG, 45 count, I would be blind. I may have to rethink Lasik surgery, LOL. Love your color changes.

It's fabulous, Tanya! I can not imagine working on 45 count.... You are quite the zippy stitcher; not only fast but beautiful work, too!

Your work on Plantation is beautiful! It's really coming along. I never noticed before, but there's so much energy in the section with the animals - it really makes it even more interesting! And the shape of the large tree is really nice. Can't wait to see it finished.

Giirrrlll! You're my hero! This looks wonderful, and on 45ct???!!! I just started my first attempt on 40ct and it will be my last... You rock! Or, in the words of Wayne & Garth: "I'm not worthy, I'm not worthy!" Hope you've had a great weekend! ~Robin

I admired this the other day but didn't have the chance then to comment.

It is so beautiful. I love how the animals and green look together. I bet it's really striking in person with that thread count being so high. Wow!

Michelle said...

Beautiful! I am loving watching your progress on this piece!!! It's so fun with all the little animals!

Denise said...

I love the colors in The Plantation...I am sure that grass was a bite...46 count...no way!!!
