It might look like it, just by the lack of posting here, that I have given up stitching. But, the truth is, I always forget to post pictures and updates.
My first finish of the year was Quaker Ball #2, this one done on 28 count linen - it is SO much bigger than the first one I did last year. (http://stitchingbea.blogspot.com/2014/01/finished-quaker-ball.html). It worked up really fast, mainly because I could stitch this without magnification (besides the green on blue; stitching on dark fabric is the pits ...)
