Class Pieces Galore!

I have received good news about the Berlin Woolwork Sampler. From my understanding the designer of this project retired but has given permission for another company to distribute the patterns again. I want to thank Paola and Juels for giving me some options for where to find the patterns and I found what I was looking for at Attic Needlework so thank you!
I also have completed 3 pieces of my Jackie Du Plessis class at Salty Yarns in August. One other is in the works and one I haven't started yet because I need to look more into the directions. Then I will be ready!

My class piece (above) has inspired me to pull out another design by Jackie Due Plessis which was actually a class piece but not a pre stitch. So I started stitching on this design and have only been working on it for about 2 days off and on and I feel that I have made great progress this piece is really fun to stitch. It eventually will turn into a basket when complete.

I have to work tonight so I'm off to stitch for a bit before I have to leave.
Have a great Saturday everyone!

First I will explain my title. I recently seen The Berlin Woolwork Sampler completed. It was absolutely beautiful! If my memory serves me correctly Paola completed it on 45 count. So I decided that I want to stitch it as well, thank you Paola for the show and tell. The pattern is no longer being printed. So I bought the four parts that Salty Yarns had and 3 parts online but I'm missing two parts, part 6 and 8. If anyone knows where I can purchase them please let me know. I will say that I can find part 6 easily but part 8 is nowhere to be found. Please Help!

On to some stitching updates. Here is a picture of one of Jackie Du Plessis's August class, at Salty Yarns, pieces. The piece still has another line of words to complete the saying.

Working on Jackie's Class piece inspired me to pull out another class piece that I went to. It wasn't a pre stitched piece so I just started it yesterday. It is going quickly.

Now I'm going back to google to try to find part 8 of The Berlin Woolwork Sampler. Wish me luck!
