Here is where I am as of today on the Quaker sampler. The first and third pages are done, which completes the left side of the design. Not bad for someone who hasn't stitched in a couple years.
I'm also showing my niece, Bridgette, how to stitch. She has been asking me to teach her for a couple years now and I tried on Sat. the 27th of April. She did a great job. I showed her with the first row, having her help pull the needle through, and she did most of the second and all of the third rows herself. I am very very proud of her! Here is her stitching and as soon as I can get the pics off my phone, I will post one of her actually doing the stitching.
Last but not least I did get the K's Creations frame from overstock dot com. It is taking a bit of getting used to but it is making it a LOT easier for me to stitch without neck, shoulder and low back pain. Works very well and I am enjoying it.
