I am still able to show some stitching progress!!!
First up? Just a small bit of progress on Chatelaine's Fairy Garden Mandala. I couldn't leave the dragonfly unfinished so I completed the first one.
I did some mindless stitching (without pattern) and filled in the Fairy on Amberlyn's Christmas stocking. Even after doing that, some of the little designs needed some backstitching. I'm in no hurry so I just pick that one up as I feel the urge.
I felt like I totally neglected the Castle SAL. I've had some issues with this one, as has many other stitchers, so I don't feel alone. But I have to feel like I can conquer it, so out it came. I didn't realize Part 3 was sooooo big, or that it was almost exclusively specialty stitches. But I finished it!!! It has LOTS of beads in this part too. This shows the piece overall, but if you follow this link there are 3 more photos, close up and trying to show the beads.
That's all for now. I only have to work 2 days in the next 2 weeks, so pretty lazy end of the year. This weekend will be crazy with 3 Christmas's being celebrated in 3 days. But that's the fun of it isn't it? We did get some snow (3 " maybe) so looks like we should have a white Christmas and if you live in Michigan you might as well have a white Christmas!!!
I hope all my blogging buddies have a great Christmas and very Happy New Year!
Almost forgot....here's Amberlyn and her first visit with Santa!!
