Oooooooohhhhhh!!!! I love how it looks so far!! Is Kim sticking with the DMC colors or is she changing things up too? I'll have to mosey on over to her blog to see. So far I've been resisting this one -- read stem stitch. I'm assuming it has a bit of surface embroidery??? Can't wait to see more!

Sorry to hear about Frieda being back in the hospital. Poor thing. Hope she gets better soon!


Beautiful start, I love the color conversion :)

Sorry to hear about your mother-in-law... sending positive thoughts and prayers to your family.

BTW, I love the new header!


I LOVE that new header!! You are too freakin' clever. YGG on the new start. I love the bright colors but also love the more subdued colors. It's going to be amazing!

Prayers continue to be said for Frieda. And for all of you, too.



What a great color conversion! I can't wait to see how this turns out.

So sorry to hear about Frieda. I do hope she is feeling better. Thoughts and prayers to all of you!


Your new choice to stitch is beautiful, and your start is lovely!

Poor Freida. I hope she gets better soon!

Good to see you stitching again, I love the new colours. Happy New Year. Julia x

Sorry your Mother-in-law is back in the hospital. Hope she is better soon.

Love the colors you selected for your new project. They are so soft and wonderful. Love the flower and leaf. Bet this is going to turn out great!


Beautiful start on Sarah's Sampler. Can't wait to see more!

I hope your MIL gets better soon...


Great start on Sarah's Sampler - I much prefer your colour conversion!

Healing thoughts to Freida from across the ocean


This is a beautiful pattern Paulette! I love your color changes! I'm so glad you've gotten a chance to sit and stitch a bit. I'm so sorry about Frieda though. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.


I think that you've chosen some lovely colors for this design. I hope that you do post many progress pics of this one ;)


I think that your choices for the threads for Sarah are beautiful. And that's a beautiful pattern! I'll have to add it to my list at some point! And you have a great array of projects in your WIP pile. I've seen DB finished by someone in my Guild and it was spectacular!

I'm sorry to hear about Frieda and hope that she gets better soon.

Ohhhh... Paulette I love the conversion you did for your Sarah. Belle Soie are my silks of choice these days and your palette is is wonderful.
I hope you get to put in a few more stitches soon.
Love your new header.


Love your new header - very stylish!

So glad you have found a little stitching time and Sarah is just an amazing piece - I am going to need this one. Your color changes are just lovely. It's going to be such fun to watch your progress and Kim's and to see the differences in colors.

Our prayers are with all of you and especially Frieda.

Happy New Year, Paulette.


I love your colour choices for the sampler!

Sending good wishes for a speedy recovery to Frieda.


Great colour choices and a good start! I wish I could be so bold with changing the colours...
I enjoyed reading about your Christmas time, and the pictures! Sophie's expressions are the best :)

i love your choice of sampler starts for 2010! it will be fun to watch your's and Kim's progress!

hope freida is feeling better and home soon. thats no way to start the new year!


I love your color conversion as well, I really don't like bright pink in any sampler- it just seems so.. unnatural.
Bless Frieda's heart.. I hope she is doing better now. :)
