She's Armless

This is where I am currently with the lovely Hannah Lancaster. Her dress is nearly complete. I only have a couple of rows to go before she is done and then I just have to finish off the side pieces, put the cross parts onto the border and she is all done. Yay she says lol.

I love Hannah, she reminds me while I have been doing her of one of Goofy's friends - Pete. She looks like one of his family. Oh I'm terrible lol. But you have to laugh sometimes.

Nothing much to report here. I'm looking forward to finishing Hannah and I think my next start will be Susan Rambo from the new edition of SANQ. What a stunner that one is. It is really jumping up and down getting my attention. I have all the DMC threads and just need to get the 40ct linen.

I hope that you have a wonderful weekend. I am going spend some time on the weekend with some of my family which will be lovely. I have 3 birthdays at the moment. On Sunday it will be my Father's 81st birthday, so it will be lovely to spend some time with him.

Your Hannah is looking fabulous, Sandra! She'll have arms soon, I'm sure. lol! I agree - I have the feeling Miss Rambo will be my next start too! Got the threads I needed today. Just waiting on fabric. Like you! :D

Your sampler is looking beautiful! I love Hannah's dress. If it's this pretty now just imagine how pretty it will be when she grows her arms. Have a nice weekend celebrating the birthdays!

Your Hannah looks fabulous even without her arms. You are so close to being finished.
Happy Birthday to your dad.

What great progress you are making! I always feel slightly guilty when I am missing body parts; or at least very relieved when they finally get stitched. I am stitching a cat at the moment and was so happy when it became more than a blob... there's a head on the blob!

She looks great Sandra even with arms. I know that she'll have those soon. And you don't have much more to go on her!!

Ms. Rambo is really starting quite a stir, isn't she. I think I'm going to pull everything together this weekend and do at least a flower or something. Ann would probably kill me if I abandoned her.

Hi Sandra!

Your Hannah is coming along beautifully. I had a good laugh too.

I haven't received my copy of the latest SANQ yet. if Susan R is the one on the cover then I am sure she will be on my list! Have fun!

Don't you just love the colors in this sampler!?! Next time you post, I'm betting she will be complete. Can't wait!

She may be armless, but she sure is beautiful!

Hannah is looking amazing. I have taken a break from mine this last week, but I really do need to get back to it.

The weather is much kinder today, I even had to wear a cardigan to the shops this morning. I have been busy finishing off a whole lot of little WIP's this last week and my list has grown considerably smaller.

Hannah is looking lovely :)) Actually your Hannah is one of the samplers made me feel like I want to stitch a sampler with a girl in the center this year. Can't wait to see her get finished!! And sure Susan Rambo is a fun girl to play with ;)
