Well I have been stitching away on Houtman's 9-11, I have now have completed the second row.. I will probably do the translation for that bare spot last.  Mr. Houtman did not chart it in English as he did the Lord's Prayer will be coming up soon. 

In my previous post, I mentioned that I had done alot of work on "Harley's" (GD) Birth Sampler, only to find and error, that I could not correct, so out it all came.   Well I found the picture in the camera, for some reason it wasn't coming up in the download, so I had thought I deleted it.. So here's the miscounted medallion that is no more...
 Well it seems like summer has arrived in Virginia, and we are finally getting some much needed rain.  For the past two mornings we have had thunderstorms, at 5 am, right when DH has to leave to catch the train.  But the rest of the days are mild but you can feel the humidity creeping in. But the cats are enjoying their porch, especially their new rocker (may be one of the days I can get a picture of either Ishy, Rhory or Beau on the rockers. 

The only other thing going on is, Paul (DH) and I are heading to Richmond this weekend, so I can do some research at the State Archives and have lunch down at the old section by the James.  I will try to get some pictures to share.  But for now, I will leave you my dear Rhory, he is the sweetest boy...


  1. Your WIPs are lovely. Love the colors you're using for the birth sampler. Rhory is adorable too! Love his nest!

  2. Great stitching on your WIPs. Rhory looks quite cozy!
