Pineapple Doily and WIP update

Recently I have completed this pineapple doily.  You can google this pattern in the name "Pink pineapple doily".  
 


Needlepoint sampler blocks update
-------------------------------------------

Stitches from the bottom row.
Blue and pink  stripe - Parisian stitch
Light blue stripe - Double Parisian stitch
Centre pink stripe - Elongated smyrna stitch
I have filled the empty spaces with straight stitches in dark blue thread.


The square with yellow and green thread is Sprats Head stitch.  I like this stitch very much.  Centre Orange color column is Cashmere stitch. The Red square on the left is T-square stitch.  The Red square on the right is T-stitch which provides a nice lace effect.
Only two more blocks to complete this sampler.

I have also completed the third  page of the mega cross stitch project.  It took 29 hrs in total to complete that page.

Happy that I have made this much progress in this project.  So  many color changes but the parking method of threads makes it easier to do.  That's all for now.  Will be back with another finish.  Till then Happy crocheting and cross stitching.
