More Mary Wigham

I've been stitching diligently and feel pretty good about how much I've gotten done. Actually, I'm finding it hard to do anything else. There is dog hair everywhere and several loads of laundry to do and scissor fobs to photograph...well, you get the picture. And those of you who are stitching addicts know exactly how I feel. I didn't have the right light setting when I took this picture so the color is not very good, but you can see how it's coming along.

Being left-brained, the geometry and symmetry of Quaker samplers really appeals to me and even though a lot of the motifs are repeated from sampler to sampler I enjoy seeing them progress on fabric. And apparently I am not alone.

The latest post on the Needleprint blog indicates that the news of this SAL is spreading like wildfire. I would like to think I helped a little bit. When it started about 4 weeks ago it was rumored to be the biggest world-wide SAL ever. And this week the downloads doubled! Way to go. And it's not too late to participate. There are nine pieces of the chart, one of which will be downloaded each Monday. You can join anytime. It's free, but feel free to donate to the Acworth School via the Paypal button on the download page. HOWEVER, you may have to wait a few days if you haven't started yet. The dramatic increase in downloads has caused an bandwidth overload and it's unavailable right now. However, you can bookmark the page and keep checking. It's well worth it.
