Here's what I've been stitching on for the past couple-three weeks!
It's an adaptation of an original sampler that is part of a collection of the Wisconsin Historical Society. www.wisconsinhistory.org
In keeping with my "use up what I have and not ordering new to finish a project" I stitched this on 30ct R&R Cafe Kona. I started out using the Gentle Arts Threads that were charted... if I did not have that, I used the DMC substitution (offered in the chart). And, when I ran short of the GA I started with... I continued on with the DMC... dare I say if I had neither the GA or DMC I substituted a close look-alike? lol! So, I guess that keeps up with the art of make do... ;-)

I've been taking a serious look at my stash of hobby stuff... particularly my cross stitch and quilting patterns. I came to the realization that my ambitions far exceed my time allowances... and decided to list quite a few patterns on eBay... all starting at 99 cents... click HERE to see if you "need" any of them! lol! I'll be listing more after these... so check back often!
Time to get back to finishing the projects I had started... some quilty stuff should be appearing here soon...
Until next time... stay healthy & keep on smiling!
