A lot of Progress

I think I have over twice as much done on this piece as I had 3 days ago. It is moving very fast. So much easier than I thought it would be yet has enough detail to be challenging enough to hold my interest. I think this will go to Addie but if not if will go to Chelsea then. I'd like to have both thier birth samplers done by the end of summer. I'm also posting a picture of what the piece will look like when it's done. The thing I am noticing on this kit is it really cut me short on the yellow floss. Fortunately I have some here and the shading matched. I'm not sure I like the way the first Princess eyes look. The scan makes her look so much worst than what it looks in person. Usually the scans make a piece look better.
This coming Wed. is our last BSF Meeting for the year. I hate to see it end I enjoyed it so much. Last week was the last time we meet in our own groups. We had lunch together afterwards and tried to get each other's e mails and those on Facebook connect with each other there. We had one person who was visiting from Singapore the last 3 months. She will be returning in a couple of weeks to Singapore. She said she might be back sometime next year (it really depends on if her job sends her here again or not.) We hope so.
Things are winding down for the summer but other things will be going on to be kept busy.
Well...until next time.....Happy Stitching! I'm going to read some more blogs.
It's a couple hours later and I have figured out why it looks so bad. I am not going to frog it as there would be too much to come out. This piece has gone into the garbage. I am so upset I could cry as I've made so many other attempts on Birth Samplers and all failed. Birth Samplers are not for me. Addie, Chelsea, Logan, Nicholas, Kate, and Scott are all just going to get pieces when they get older! I'm so frustrated and upset!

Feel for you getting so far then finding an error too big to cope with.
You have amazing strength - I would never be able to throw it in the bin! Instead I have several such pieces lurking at the very bottom of the UFO pile in my stash cupboard.

I'm sorry your birth sampler didn't work out.
