Work in Progress Wednesday: Thistle

It's still very much Wednesday here in Seattle (I'm at a conference for work). This is the thistle project that I had hoped to give to my MIL in August. As you can see, I'm still working on this one. There's always Christmas!

The last time I showed it to you (but not the last time I worked on it) was April.

This project is so 90s, at least it feels that way to me with all the careful rows of specialty stitches. Was this sort of sampler bigger back then, or is it just my imagination?

Long day of sitting in presentation after presentation. And jet lag. I think I'm in need of a lie down...

I still like those patterns even if they are "90's" but, they still aren't teddy bears. Its beautiful.

I think it stands the test of time. House you have a bit of time to get out and enjoy Seattle. It is such a pretty city.

I started a pattern for my MIL oh back in March maybe for her birthday in June. I have not finished it and it's a Halloween theme... yeah. Maybe for Christmas. It's got so many fractional stitches... I'm blaming that. Not my lack of motivation. :) I hope you manage to finish yours by Christmas!

I have several Shepherd's Bush patterns from that era and I love them! Maybe because you couldn't get designs like that here.

This one is really sweet, your MIL will love it I'm sure.

Looks great Nikki. The 90's weren't to bad.
