A Quick Update

Before i head off to bed for an early night i wanted to share a quick update with you.
This is where i left Molly last week, more or less finished off the tree.


See that little blank space bottom right?  I had to un pick that bit as i stitched it in the wrong colour!
I had to have a rest from all that brown stitching so i picked up BP and stitched, errrr, more brown, lol
I finished off the motif on the left, completed the large one on the right and the small one above that.  I'm going to finish off the one i started next the the bird before putting it away for a few days.
I need some colour in my stitching life with all this brown so there may be a new start to share next time ;-)

Thank you all for your lovely comments on my last post.  Changing the background for your own image was not that hard, although i had to re-size the photo.  For those who asked to know how, go into Design Template then Background and there is a little box called Background image, select the the drop down arrow next to that box and it will give you an option to Upload your own image (or there are loads of different backgrounds on there to choose from instead)  It does suggest the size to make your photo so that it will fit.

I mentioned last time that i was going to start a 365 photo blog.  I made my first post tonight, i hope you will pop over and take a look and maybe a comment to start me off?

Until next time x

I've just discovered your blog, Maggie, and I really love what you've done with your background--I'll bet a lot of us will be trying this idea! Thanks for sharing the instructions--and all of your brown stitching is so pretty :)

Lovely progress on your WIPs!

Love your progress on both samplers, Maggie! I had to laugh about the comments about the brown. I'm mired in brown on CHS Elizabeth but finally got to add in some color in the form of bird eggs. LOL Your Quaker sampler is beautiful!

What a great possibility to create your very personal background. I love yours. And I love your two WIPs and the progress you made on them. When there is a big tree in one of my projects I'm always very relieved when it's done, lol. Like you.

Maggee!!! I love your progress on BP...that brown is gorgeous...hope you don't tire of her soon. I can't wait to see your finish. I am stitching her too, and need some desperate motivation to get her done. I don't mind working on it, but it is taking for-ever!!!!

Also love your new background, looks great!!

Maggie: I just checked out your new photography blog. What fabulous photographs! I have a minor in photography, but have never translated that know-how to my digital camera. Your work -- including the stitching -- is wonderful.
