Mid-Week Progress

Just a small post to show you all what I have been up to! First, last Thursday I finished the first part, minus the beads for AAN SAL.


Now, since I have it in a Q-Snap frame, I haven't added the beads yet. But I think that I will, and just stitch it in hand after that.

Here is Joy all done! This one was a really quick stitch and I love the colours. My camera doesn't do it justice! Now all I have to do is take it over to my mother's and look for some fabric to sew it. Aren't Mom's great?

I have decided to take and cut out all the pieces for my Gingerbread Stitching House. I feel that it will be easier for me to stitch in hand, as I can add the beads as I go along. I feel that using a scroll frame would be too bulky and I wouldn't be able to add the beads with it!

I can't wait to watch the opening ceremony for the Olympics tomorrow night! So I will be sitiching and watching! Go Canada!!

Joy is so pretty Melissa. I haven't had much time for posting on the SEO stitchers board . I seem to spend more time on the blogs. Hope that at some point we can all get together for a SAL and meet one another.
