Update for April 21st

 Goodness I haven't  posted for many days so here we go. I have went a little eBay crazy this month and won many older sampler patterns and two nice pieces of fabric a 40 count and a nice yard of 32 count both were ivory so I can do some hand dying. Here are pictures of my 16 new patterns. I picked up a few samplers and a set of  English houses done by Downunder. Nothing expensive but ones I really like so the stash collecting continues.
Saturday the 16th was our April Stitch and Bitch, Jan and Sharliena made it this time. Tracey was unable to make it this month but Sharliena did bring her oldest daughter with her this month. Jan and I worked on our Tavern signs but all I have to show is time is the sign outline so it is not very interesting. I will post a picture next month.  I worked on my Pot 4 Dickie and got the first line of the alphabet done in the second band.

And last night was the 2nd of this month's Stitch In at my LNS In Stitches and I got a little bit more done and now I am 3/4 way through skein number 3.

What a gorgeous piece! Could you please tell me where I can get this chart? From what I can see of the design, I know I'd love to stitch it myself!

Thanks in advance
Kell.
