Finished with CDC & some other progress pics

Guess I took some blogging vacation in addition to my work vacation! Luckily, I did get some stitching time in. My original plan was to wrap up some ornaments, then finish Cirque before New Year's so I could start the Beatrix Potter Ackworth sampler. But, the best laid I didn't finish by New Year's, but I finished New Year's Day. This completes Cirque & makes it my first finish of 2009!

Between Thanksgiving and Christmas, I also spent a bit more time on Blackbird's "Mystery Sampler", finishing the 2nd part. The biggest mystery for me is "When will the last part be released?" I love how this one is turning out & I can't wait to get the next 2 sections done.

On Jan 2, I started Beatrix Potter's Ackworth School sampler. I'm doing this one with the ladies over at the BP SAL. I'm thinking if I do a minimum of 2 motifs a month, I'll have it finished by the end of the year. For anyone else doing this one; are you keeping the initials as is, or are you switching them out with your own? Drew's sister K gave me a Beatrix Potter biography that I'm really enjoying. It's fun to learn about the woman behind the books & makes me feel more connected to the sampler.

Beautiful CDC! Mine is about an 1/8 of the way done but I really want to finish it soon. I'm not sure when the last mystery section will be out. I'm thinking mid-February. :-)

Your CdC is fabulous!! Great colour choices. I'm itching to pull this chart out of my stash now that I've seen yours. Love the mystery sampler too.
