Finally progress!!!



Back from really glorious holidays in Switzerland in one piece , I might add, thank you.( yeah, I know....but I am always quite happy to be there and return quite rested ) . If you need a good sleeping pill, try my album  :-) . Remember those days when people insisted to show their pics, even if they were quite bad and mostly showed off "us here and us there and everywhere "? With internet albums you are free to ignore or just say "how wonderful"without even looking , much better !!!!

Well, nuff of that now,  during the last days of my hols weather was instable at best, often rainy, so  I decided to get into my stitching again. I seemed to have a "stitcher's block" or something, but it is over now, methinks.

Here is where I have got to by now :



 Last pic I posted was in Nov 2014. To be fair I had done some stitching in between , but it was verrrrrry slow going , I was not really inspired .

  1. Hello Elly,
    How beautiful the rug is! I can't wait to see it finished. The colors are wonderful!
    I am glad you are back safe and sound. It looks like you had an incredible trip...the pictures are so beautiful...#038 and 054 are my favorites.
    Big hug,

    1. Hi Giac, wonderful to see you again ! Thank you for your kind comments, both on the pics and my stitching progress. It seems there is hope even when having stitcher's block, after all.

  3. I know that stitching a rug is slow going at best but it must feel good to have accomplished all that you have done to date! The pattern is really lovely and whichever room you choose to place it in when it is finished, will feel that it has been worth the wait! :D
    Keep up it up Elly

  4. Elly so pleased that you had an uneventful holiday and came back safe and sound! You have certainly made good progress on the rug and it is looking gorgeous. Is this rug for you or is it a commission piece? It is always encouraging to see the design emerge isn't it? Hope you don't have any more stitcher's block ;)
