Inspiration progress



I managed to get in some stitching over the weekend on Inspiration by Rosewood Manor. The colors are more true on the left side of the photo where my light was shining when I took the pic.

I also managed to finish my French Monogram design into an actual basket. It turned out okay I think, but I'm still not itching to make any more. I decided I'd give it away as one of my "Pay it Forward" gifts. So if you'd like to have it, make a comment to this post and I'll draw someone at random. Psst... I'll load it up with some other goodies inside too! Not sure exactly what yet, but it will likely be based on whose name is drawn and what chocolate I can get hold of. :)

I love the basket, and would love to be in the drawing!

Inspiration is coming along nicely :)

I think your basket turned out well. Although I can see how making one would be enough. Isn't it funny how those things that seem the easiest turn out to be not so.

I think the basket looks great. We should compare notes though, I wonder if you had the same trouble I did...

Inspiration is wonderful! Rosewood Manors' work up so beautifully. I was in awe when I saw all her models at Celebrations.

Your basket is lovely, but I'm even more excited about seeing your progress on Inspiration. After your first progress pic I went out and bought the chart and fabric, since I loved your pic so much! Don't know when I'll start it, but I really enjoy seeing your progress!

Now, catching up on earlier posts: congrats on the review and new tasks at work; leadership is scary, but I know you'll do great! And I love Katie's HD, very cute!
