You know I'm working on my Terre de France marquoir daily. I usually stitch it every day for a quarter because I want to catch up on the published blocks. A quarter is not enough time but I don't want to give up the sampler during these months. I'll be busy with Christmas projects but it must go on!!! So I have a new block.




Then I stitched my Teri's stocking. Today the progress is not important, but I also worked on a Christmas ornament that I can't share because it should be for my secret partner in the EMS exchange.



I stole an idea from Renee blog. I decided to add a mini poll. I'm going to purchase and stitch a LHN pattern. They are all lovely and I can't choose one.....so if you like you can vote your favourite one! I could choose just the one you voted...



How do you `non-hoopists' who use a rotation system handle it (as it seems to be lot easier if you are in good terms with hoop)? Do you have several scroll frames? Do you use Q-snaps or maybe something completely different? Or do you just have one or two big projects and others are small enough to be kept in hand while stitching?

Today my answer is simple. I don't use a rotation system even if I have a lot of WIPs and I usually stitch every kind of project keeping it in hand. I don't use Q-snaps or hoops.

Hi Bea--I love the Terre de France piece!! If I didn't already have so many projects started I would do that one, too!! Seeing your poll was the impetus I needed to start a LHN project. It is a smaller one called Spot of Coffee! When I have a bit stitched, I will share my progress! By the way, we have mozzerella cheese here, but I don't think it is the same thing--ours is a hard white cheese. I think I would love the original (and have to be in Italy eating it of course!!LOL).

I just voted in your poll. Oh you're bad! I didn't know the Bookshelf. It has some of my favourite authors and titles. Oh now I want it! *bad, bad*... ;o)

LHN are nice projects. I have some free patterns & purchased Herb Garden. It says: "The herbs in my garden are planted to share...With family and friends and the little brown hare" So far, it is my favourite .... but all are nice

Good for you Bea for working on your Terre de France daily! I have fallen behind on mine while I work on exchange projects. I hope it will be easy to catch up. I love the floss you chose.
