Back From The Brink

Sabrina is still here :o) I've been in a bit of a stitching slump lately but I have made a bit of progress on her -

Photobucket

Thankfully, her dress DID cover that spot on the fabric. Whew!

I just have a small portion of her dress and the roses on her bum left to go and them I'm done side one of the pattern. I've been seriously thinking about taking a break from Sabrina for awhile and stitching something else. What? I'm not sure. I would like to get Gentleman Quaker by Jardin Prive done and then that way, I can have both framed at the same time (when I get some extra money that is).

Then there's Dog Lessons For People by Lizzie Kate. I think I have everything I need to stitch this one too. Or do I just dig out an ornament sized project just to give me a quick change of scenery? Argh! My mind just won't settle! What to do...what to do...

I want to thank everyone for their wonderful comments lately! I see that my Stalker list has increased so I want to welcome all my new readers and hope that you'll stitch around :o) I hope all the moms out there have a very Happy Mother's Day weekend.

Cole said...

She looks absolutely lovely! And I'm very glad for you that her dress covered the stain :)

Do whatever you feel like ~ WIPS are like shoes, a girl can never have too many!! LOL

Happy Saturday!

Sabrina looks gorgeous. But your possibilities for some different charts all look like good choices if you want a break.

I don't think I'd ever seen the Jardin Prive web site. Lovely designs there.

Sabrina is looking fantastic! Good work! Can't wait to see what you decide to pick up next.

What a beauty she is Cathey! I know that if I were stitching as large a piece as Sabrina I would have to take a break and have some small finishes. I really need that "thrill" that comes with a finish. I think that's why I'm so happy stitching ornaments.

Irene said...

Sabrina is coming along nicely. Your other choices are good ones. I find there are so many out there that I want to stitch it drives me crazy, or is it crazier ! *LOL*

you have a great Mother's Day.
Be always in stitches.

Cindy said...

Very beautiful! And, I'm glad that the stitching covered the spot. It's always good to take a break from a piece now and then. Probably not so good to take the long breaks that I do (LOL) but it surely does help to take that break :)

Looks great, I have her in my stash too, just need to finish my current project..haha!!!

Brigitte said...

Gorgeous stitching and great progress on Sabrina.
I still remember you stitching teh Quaker Lady, so the companion piece would be a great idea.

Bre said...

WOW, I can't wait to see Sabrina finished!

Angela said...

That's great news that the stitching has covered up the dreaded spot! Whew. Sabrina looks so lovely are you sure you want to put her away??? I agree though a small might be just the thing you need right now :) Just don't start too many projects like I did then you end up feeling bad! LOL. Happy Mother's Day to you.

Lisa said...

Sabrina is looking lovely & thank the lord that her dress covered the fabric mark.

Sabrina is looking wonderful, as for wanting a break from her I think that you should stitch on whatever you feel like.

Rachel S said...

She is looking gorgeous!

JOLENE said...

Sabrina is gorgeous......wouldn't it be nice to be that young and beautiful?! Smiles....

♥ Nia said...

Sabrina looks amazing :) She's really beautiful.. but too long to stitch :p
You should really make a break if you feel the need, then you'll continue with the same pleasure as always ;)
I never did anything so big, I admire you :)
