So - I waited until now to post because I felt silly posting more update photos here of the same old same old.....

I am so thrilled that this is finished. It needs a good steam bath to fluff up the stitches and it will look better once stretched but IT'S DONE!!

Makhi by Landmark design - started Feb 2009 and finished Feb 2010. mbroider asked how big it is (and I don't think I've been asked that before!) It is stitched on 16 count aida and is 187x187 stitches which makes it about 12" square. This is the second Landmark design that I've finished of 10 that I purchased 2 years ago.

I finished Kazakh early last year.

I have started a third just today - I'll try to post the details tomorrow. I adore these patterns and hope to one day hang them in the stairwell.

Ginger, our puppy is starting to settle in and it has been wonderful to see our older dog becoming more playful again. The pooping continues, but I seem to be learning her schedule ;)
Do you think she'll grow into her ears??!?

Good night all,


  1. Wooo Hoooo!!! Fabulous finish. How happy are you?!? As for Ginger, she's so cute I could just eat her with a spoon!

  2. Yahoo - congratulations!!! It's gorgeous! Can't wait to see the next one. :)

  3. What a cute cute cute puppy! She will grow into her ears. I think she'll be pretty big. Makhi looks just gorgeous! We bought a Kazakh rug when we lived in Doha and your kazakh is just as gorgeous.

  4. Congratulations!! It is amazing you finished this project in a year's time? I just checked you crossed 34969 stitches from when you started!!

  5. Both of these are gorgeous, Caroline!

  6. Wonderful! Can you contact me on where to purchase these?

  7. OOOH I love your stitching what a work you have done but it's wonderful!!
