River Island Needleworker

I am an avid needleworker and quilter from Plainwell, Michigan. Plainwell is located about 10 miles north of Kalamazoo, Michigan and is situated on an island in the Kalamzoo River. The Kalamazoo River is an EPA area of concern due to PCB contamination from the numerous paper mills along the river. For more information see Kalamazoo River Superfund Site and wikiPedia

Pompeji Gardens

Well after a belated start (part 3 was already posted when I joined the Yahoo Group) and a delay in getting the kit, here is my progress so far on Chatalaine Designs Pompeji Gardens as of mid-November. I used the wrong color for aqua/turquiose part and had to rip it out. I'm hoping that there aren't too many more algerian eyelets. I don't mind doing them once I get started, but somehow they aren't my favorite thing.

I am using 32 count natural Sienna as my fabric.

I have completed page 1 of 12 of Nancy's French Alphabet sampler. I hope to have 2 to 3 pages of 12 done by Jan 1. I am also using 32 cnt natural Sienna fabric with Elizabethan Green silk thread by Glorianna Threads.

The alphabet's color scheme is using the alma mater colors for my cousin and his wife (green for Michigan State) and Brown (natural linen) for Western Michigan University respectively. This sampler is easy to do, if not a bit large (32in by 32 in).
