Official Progress Weekend (OPW)

Tonight is the start of our first "Official Progress Weekend" or OPW as I am going to call them. Tracy and I have decided to work on our Ink Circles and Just Nan SALs and see what progress we can make this weekend. Here is my before shots:

I will post again on Monday to show progress. I hope to have many more of these OPWs.

Hope everyone has a lovely Easter Weekend. I am spending mine with friends seeing as my dh is away.

Don't eat too much chocolate!

PS Thank you for all your encouraging comments regarding blog reading. I am so glad I am not alone.

Great idea to have an OPW! :D I like your projects -- pretty colors on both! Looking forward to seeing what you accomplish! Have a great weekend and a good Easter!

Robin said...

Good luck with your OPW! What a great way to spend a 3 day weekend. I love both of your stitchie pieces. Oh my! I would be afraid of the Ink Circles...somewhere I would miscalculate and there is no room for compensation stitches on that piece! Love the color combination.

Shari said...

both pieces are beautiful Hazel! Love your picture at the top of your blog.

Hello Hazel - I think this is going to be my weekend for catching up too -- hopefully both stitching and blogging. I read through your last three posts - many lovely finishes and WIPs that you are working on! I too have had so much trouble finding time keeping up with all of the blogs, but when I do have time to visit - what a treat!

Happy Easter!

Dianne said...

Both are beautiful!

Tracy said...

Hun OMG your JN looks stunning I'm going to have to catch up your putting me to shame xx

Sally said...

Beautiful progress on both pieces Hazel. I do like the JN best though! So pretty and sparkly.

I think you're going to have a very successful OPW weekend! As many others have commented, the Just Nan piece is wonderful!

Thats a great idea! Ive been enjoying working on CDC again as part of my rotation

Brigitte said...

That's a really great idea. I'm looking forward to seeing your progress on Monday.
As for leaving comments - I do it the same way as you do. When I have a lot of time (very rare!) I leave comments wherever I go. When time is limited I just leave comments on blogs whose owners also comment on mine.
Have a great Easter weekend!
