Bushel and a Peck - La D Da

I didn't think I was going to be able to start on Bushel until I got to Atlanta for my vacation. However, I finished Alex's ornament and just couldn't wait to pick it up. I was able to get some done before my thumb just gave out on me. :(

I had to stitch Alex's ornament in hand, and my thumb is killing me from the way I was holding the plastic canvas. Guess I was doing something wrong there. The thumb is still bothering me and I haven't been able to pick up any stitching since. I'm hoping to try today, but I'll be honest. I'm not very hopeful.

Below, you will see the first pictures of my progress. I've actually gotten just a little bit further, but not very much. I am loving stitching with the Vikki Clayton/HDF silk. It just feels yummy! LOL The linen is also a Vikki Clayton/HDF dye piece. And everything is looking so nice together.

Mom has asked me to help her set up a blog while I am down there. I am hoping that we will be able to do it. She does some of the most amazing stitching. I'd love for everyone to be able to see it. :D

I plan to post pictures of my progress while I'm down there. But, we all know how plans can go awry. ;)

Your progress is just beautiful!!! And thank you so much for your encouraging comment! It means so much! Sometimes I feel so alone in my troubles, and not that I want others to be troubled as well, but it is nice to know I'm not alone! You, too, dear are in my thoughts!

I love this pattern. I have it but I haven't stitched it yet. I'll be interested in watching your progress.
