Finally The Enchantment of Winter Update
I have been teasing you for weeks now about Enchantment of Winter and the progress I've been making on it during my summer vacation. In the back of my mind I had a specific goal in mind, to finish stitching the over one section, this is a major part of this design as the Cathedral at the egg's center is ALL over one, with over one backstitching to boot.
Well last night around 9PM or so I was dancing! I have finished all the over one stitching on the Cathedral... of course it has to now be back stitched but I'll leave that for another time.
I couldn't believe how nice it was to get back to stitching over two and not needing a magnifier anymore! Not only was I stitching over one, but it was over one on 32ct linen.
I'll be putting Enchantment aside for a short while, hopefully tomorrow evening I'll have the time to start the wedding sampler for my longtime friend, Andrew. The wedding is September 10th but I didn't pick anything too big or too complicated.
How about a PhotoHunt to round out this post? As I'm now completely up to date for 2011, let's take look back at the themes I missed for 2010. The theme on January 2nd was "lick".
This is my friend Ann's dog, Paddy. She was being treated to an ice cream cone which she started with licking but once she got too the cone it was time to bite!!!
Sigh, its back to work for this girl tomorrow!
