JCS Horn of Plenty

Good evening everyone! I ran across this blog via Brigitte's post on her At Brigitte's Place blog. I have to say that I'm glad I found it as I was in some need of motivation to finish a project that I started in October of 2012. I started it for my aunt, but didn't feel the drive to finish it as it wasn't something I would normally have picked to stitch.

Thank you, Kaye, for allowing me to join your group.

Just the thought of this blog got me stitching on my pattern this afternoon. It is Sharon Pope's Horn of Plenty from the Just Cross Stitch October 2012 issue. The first picture below shows the fabric as it really looks compared to the second picture.

This was my progress from earlier this year after letting it sit in my stitched pieces pile for quite a while. I was able to backstitch a bit on it before putting it to the side to stitch on designs I actually wanted to stitch on.

And here's my progress this afternoon, two leaves and the top of the cornucopia on the right. Not a lot done, but it's a step in the right direction ^___^

I actually can't wait to stitch on it on Friday night. I think I'll need some relaxing stitching time by the end of the work week.

Have a great week everyone!

Glad to have you join us Rachel. You made good progress. The colours look great on that beautiful fabric!

So great to see you here, Rachel. I joined the group for the same reason - to pull out some of the older WIPs and make some progress on them. You made some nice progress on this lovely fall piece.

This is a gorgeous piece, Rachel and I am so glad that you are happy to be a part of this SAL blog. I hope that you have fun, remember the only rule is to stitch on a UFO or WIP on a Friday night, but of course, if you are busy one Friday night you can make Friday night any night of the week, right? lol!
