Where did it go....
This week just flew by. I actually thought I hadn't accomplish much but I guess I did.....
I finished the Ornament from the Just cross stitch Christmas preview mag. I need to make it into an ornament yet ...soon.
Next I put some stitches in the Nordic Angel. As you can see here her dress is finished, now it's the apron. Yikes!!! lots of white and gray.
Jeanette Douglas has put out a chart for an Album of Stitches...I decided to do this on black Lugana...yup BLACK...I know I'm nuts but boy will it be pretty.
I started it this Saturday. Oops sorry Bling I left you behind for a week. I promise I'll get back to her.
The picture is of page 1 and it has 8 pages and a front cover and a back cover. The picture I took of mine is a little gray. But believe me it's BLACK.
The first page is done with the Mosaic stitch.
Pretty small on 32ct but it is so pretty.
All the pages will be a different colour.this one is pale green and blue!
Ann and I spent an afternoon at her store and put all the colours together for 10 of us to start page one. Yes you heard me right there are ten of us that bought the charts and are going to learn how to make all these wonderful stitches. We will get together once a week. Maybe even some of you will be encouraged to join us. she has a few chartsleft and can order more!!!!!
Well I had better get caught up on my blogging .I seem to have gotten away from it. Sometimes I just want to STITCH.
Also the singing starts tonight.
So two nights a week are taken up with singing..how did I ever find time to work.
Stitch with happy fingers!
