Mistress L

I am half done with Mistress L!  I measured and it is now 16 finished inches long.
You can't really appreciate the design unless you see photos closer up:

 I started the next row and when it is done, I'll be at 17 1/4 inches out of 32.  I am working on row 32.  Only two more rows and I will get to put in the Queens.  So I am very happy with my progress.  Maybe I can get this done this year.

I started the Elegant Stitch/Betsy Morgan Breast Cancer piece.  I wanted to try it on white instead of pink.  I think it will work.  I'll show you my progress tomorrow.

Lynn and Ednamay, you are listed as no reply.  Lynn, I emailed Lois at Elegant Stitch to get the Breast Cancer piece.  As far as I know, it is still available although it is listed as a limited edition. (

  2. You are moving quite quickly on that sampler. It is very pretty.

  3. Thank you Amy! I'll have to figure out how to switch from no reply.

  4. Looking lovely! Looks like a lot of fun and unusual bands in this sampler.

  5. This piece is awesome.

  6. It looks great! That is a fabulous sampler! I started it, but then indecisiveness hit - I saw a completed one on a darker linen - and now I can't decide which linen I prefer....

  7. Love following your blog and the progress on the various pieces you create - especially the casket! If you're ever willing to sell the Mistress L pattern when you're done with it, please contact me!
