I stitched on this today. Have this whole 1/4 section done except for the holly and beads. I will add them when i am all done cross stitching this piece. it is Christmas Angel by Joan Elliott from The Cross Stitcher December 1996 issue.
My Friday Finish Father Time the first in the Vermilion set. Took about a week from start to finish. Will now go into a drawer and await the other 11. My QSW The cats were done in two colors but you can't tell from the photo.Done on Saturday
I used DMC 434 and 3685
The heart was done on Sunday and in DMC 3685. Only took just a few hours to complete this quickie.
Here's my progress so far on my Cozy Christmas Afghan....4 squares down and I can't remember how many more to go! This one is really fun....I've had this in my stash for years, but never really took time for it before. Now it's back in "rotation" so I won't have any more progress on it for another 5 weeks or so, but....here it is so far!
Here's my next WIP - Rose of Sharon from Mirabilia. I've been working on her for 26 hours now. I've changed the color of her dress, as I don't like yellow so much. I'm stitching her 2x2 on 28 ct English Rose Jobelan.
Here's what she'll look like, when I finish (of course the dress will be violet :) )
I changed some of the colors to suit me a seeing as I couldn't find a color code. I felt like such a dummy when I was almost done stitching the cat. I realized that the grid was counted out in 5's not 10's. When I first started to cut the fabric I told Dennis "What have I gotten myself into !!!!!!" Thinking it was gonna be much bigger then it was. Hope nobody else made that same mistake...LOL Thanks for the freebie and thanks for the SAL.
