Hi Blogger Friends.  I FINALLY finished the stitching on page 3 of the Stable and am almost done with the backstitch on that page.  Hoooorayy!!!!

Several people have mentioned that I am almost done.  Sure wish I was.  I wanted to be done by April 1. That would make it one year.  Not stitching on it for 2 months put me behind.
If you look at the lower left side - there are 16 rows to get to the bottom and 200 rows across.  I think I still have a ways to go.  At least I am enjoying stitching on it again.

Fall Welcome - Diane Arthurs - did the black bird

Santa's 12 Days of Christmas - Day 6 - Prairie Schooler - worked on the two geese

Thanks for looking.  Linda

I Made Some Progress

Hi Blogger Friends.  I feel like I actually made some progress this week.  Of course, now I'm trying to frantically work on all 10 Turtle Trot pieces by Monday.  (Will I ever learn???)

Stable - Bothy Threads Monday SAL - I did more backstitching on the open door and wall.  Also did some green and started the dog.

Fall Welcome - Diane Arthurs - Saturday SAL - I finished her dress, started the squash and did more backstitching on the basket.

Santa's 12 Days of Christmas - Day 6 - Prairie Schooler - Sunday SAL - I started the geese and did more on the coat.

A chart for the furbabies.  You can read all about it HERE.  The purchases will be donated to animal rescue or animal shelters.  They surprised me with a skein of floss.

I had watched Thoeria stitch this design.  When she finished it, she was kind enough to send it to me.  Thank you Thoeria.  Go check out her awesome stitching.

Justine won a giveaway on a blog.  The winner had to pick someone else to send the prize to.  And, she picked me.  I got these two great charts.  Thank you Justine.  Go check out more awesome stitching.

This was my very first cross stitch piece back in the mid 80's.  Oh how horrible I thought counted cross stitch was.

Thanks for looking.   Linda
