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!

You got it right...where does time go? I get up every day at 4:45 a.m. and at night I'm still running hither and yon with nothing to show for it?!
All your stitching is just beautiful and you seem to just stitch up everything with speed :)

Great progress on everything Beatrice.
I carried on with Mosaic Muse and am working on the top section...it is quite addicting...tiny stitches but addicting nevertheless!

Beautiful pieces. You got that right. In retirement, the time does fly, but it is grand isn't it?

Your ornament is so pretty. Love it! Nordic angel is coming along beautifully too.

MSA on black! That's gonna be stunning. I really like this new design of hers. However, it's a little out of my budget at the moment. Looking forward to seeing progress on yours.

That angel is soooo beautiful. Hope you won't get bored with the apron. Poor little Bling, I bet he misses you. The ornament is really nice. You have been very busy and still I bet had fun.

The ornament turned out lovely! Nordic angel is really progressing too.
Great start to your JD album. It should be fun to see how the albums all progress. Hopefully you and Ann can post pics of all the different ones.

What a lovely pattern, and your finish of the Halloween sampler and earlier one of the Chirstmas Ornament are wonderful. You've been quite busy with finishing those and working on your Angel and new Stitch sampler too. Album of stitches will be quite striking on the black.
