Promised Mary Allen WIP, etc.

I finally took a pic of my progress on this special sampler. I haven't worked on it since last Friday, though. Itching to get back to it, but also enjoying working on This Is the Day. I also took a couple updated pics of it, to show the progress I made over the weekend.

Very slow progress, but I will get there. This project is just screaming to be done and framed and over my fireplace mantel! And it is all the fault of Siobhan and Terri, for enabling me so, with their finished Mary Allen's! Love you guys! This a pic of the completed model Mary Allen, in case some of you readers haven't seen it yet:


Isn't it just beautiful? I am loving the conversion to NPI Silks!

Also those pics of This Is The Day, by Hands To Work. I converted the called for fibers, to a little bit different look:



and a close up of the over 1 block, just need to add my initials.



It has been a gloriously beautiful day here in Indiana!! Hope you all are experiencing nice weather too!

Thanks for visiting and commenting!

Oh, my, gosh!!!!!!!!!! Jan, they are both so beautiful. I don't know how you can choose which to work on--they're both stunning. Your Mary Allen is coming along great! YGG! The fabric you chose is wonderful for it. I love your This Is The Day. Such a fun sampler to stitch--even if I do start singing it in a high pitched voice like we do in church, whenever I think of it! :)

I should be heading off to bed but now I have a burst of stitching spazziness after seeing your pics and want to go and stitch. :D

Siobhan said...

I mean, singing the verse, "This is the Day...". Ahem. Sorry. Like I said, I need to get to bed! LOL

Margaret said...

I want to do a conversion on my "This is the Day too" I want mine deeper reds/golds than what she has charted. I believe yours is LOVELY!!!

Jan dear one - you are flying along on your WIP's - they are both beautiful - Love This is the Day and it is on my to do list too. I'll have to admire Mary Allen from afar - way too much wording for me to stitch LOL

I've never seen the Mary Allen before...it will be just gorgeous!

Suzanne said...

Jan, could you post some purchase info on the Mary Allen piece and the designer info? Thanks so much!

Katrina said...

Jan, I pulled my threads for this is the day and then I look at yours. I love the richer colors. i don't suppose you'd be willing to share your conversion? I totally understand if you don't want to but I thought I'd ask :-).

Oooh, yes Jan! Please post your conversion!! It's stunning!!!

Add me to the list of stitchers who love your conversion on "This is the Day." I keep seeing this pattern in progress and wanted to start it, too. I'd love to have a copy of your conversion, if you're willing to share. Thanks!!

Mary Allen is high on my list! I'll live vicariously thru you until I can get her in the stash!! And I really MUST find that magazine!!! I love This is the Day!

joan said...

I, too like your This is the Day conversion and plan to start it soon. I was wondering what linen you chose, I usually choose thread colors first and then find something in my stash that works.Thank You for sharing your choices and your beautiful work.
