I am not sure anymore when did I started this one, i think end of last year or the beginning of this year. I want to go further with this one, only there is one thing that is putting me off is the picot one. We'll see......

Finally done the backstitching on the dutch girl.

Also stitched three blocks on Jayne's rr, the middle on the left side, top and bottom on the right side. I am only supposed to stitch two blocks and then send it back to Jayne but one was left to be stitch, (it was because one had dropped out a while back)i offered to stitch the last block for her. Now, it's on the way back to the U.K.

Today's SBQ was suggested by Carol and is:

Have you ever participated in a needlework mystery (i.e., a design that you started before knowing how it will look in the end and by which you receive parts of the design via the internet, magazines, or leaflets at spaced intervals)? If so, why did you decide to do the mystery? What appealed to you about it? Did you enjoy it? If you have not done a mystery, would you ever do one?

No, i never participated in a needlework mystery as most i have seen so far where all outside the country where i live and it needed cc for payment and i don't have one.

Last week SBQ:

Do you stitch "over one?" If so, describe your experiences. If not,
have you considered it?

No, i haven't tried stitching over one yet. Perhaps, if i have encountered a chart that needed to be stitch over one that i like i will surely try it.

Hi Mylene, your projects are all great. I especially love the hardanger, you should definitely pick it up again!

Hi Mylene, I understand your reluctance to stitch picots. They're not my favorite thing either. Have you thought about adding a bead instead of doing the picot? That would give the same effect, plus a little shimmer!
