I had a finish the other day. Felt good to get this done. I love the feeling I get when I'm less then a day's stitching away from getting something big like this finished. I don't want to do anything but stitch till the piece is finished.

Next piece to work on and I hope my next finish: My Security Blanket.

I've been working on both My Security Blanket and Little Snap Dragon lately. As well as starting a new piece for a friends daughters birthday in March. Below is my progress on MSB and LSD.

I decided to start with Little Snap Dragon from my UFO list to get done this year. I'll work on this for a few weeks...or till something else calls to me.

This is what I got done over the weekend. (you can see the orignal WIP picture below)

1 of the colors for the wings wasn't in the bag I had all the floss for this project in. So I went out today and got it. Can't wait to get working on it agian. Everytime I went to work on a different color I seemed to want to work on the color I didn't have.

I'm taking part in the Crazy 2011 UFO Challenge on FB. Here are pictures of the 15 pieces I've chosen to get finished this year as well as pictures of how far along I am with each of them.

I've decided to stitching the following design since Halloween is coming up soon.

Witchie Renabest

My problem is that I can't decided which fabric to stitch her on so I did a floss dump the other day but I still can't decide so I thought I'd ask all of you which one you like better.

Number 1 is 32 ct Opalescent Jazlyn Cocoa

Number 2 is a 27 count Linda New Khaki

Thanks for your help. Hope everyone has a great weekend and Happy Stitching!

Card for Lisa

I stitched up a freebie kit I got from an old issue of the UK Cross Stitcher and put it into a card rather then the cardboard mount it came with and sent sent it off to a friend for her birthday. She's not gotten it yet but she doesn't know about my blog so she won't see this.

I enjoyed stitching it. I wasn't completely crazy about the 1/2 stitches in 1 strand. If I had to do it again I'd probably do it in 2.

Just short post today but i"ll try to be back with more soon. Happy Stitching!

My friend Monica went to Comic Con in San Diego this year and she sent me a huge box filled with goodies she picked up while there. As a thank you I decided to stitch her something. We are both Fans of J.R. Wards Series The Black Dagger Brotherhood. so I decided to stitch her the initial of her favorite character in the book. His name is Rehvenge and he has Amethyst eyes so I decided to use 2 different shades of purple for the stitching.

Here is what the finished stitching looks like

and finished into a pillow.

This is the fabric I used on the back of the pillow.

A pattern in my stash called Seaside Sweethearts has been called Seaside Sweethearts. I pulled the floss for it today and I'm thinking I'll try and start it tonight while I check out the Pats preseason game.
