March Freebie Fractal

Well, here's my progress so far on the free fractal for the month of March. I started it as kind of a rotation project to alternate with Angel of Cross Stitch. It's a TON of confetti stitches, as you can tell. I am thru the first three rows of blocks of ten on page one. I think I'm going to set it aside for a week's worth of Christmas ornament stitching. Then a week on Angel, then back to this for a week, etc. That way I won't get tired of any of them! (Famous last words!).

Floss Exchange

This is the lovely floss I got from Tammy as part of the ILCS floss exchange. It was so much fun to if the floss I ordered for Tammy would just get here so I could send it off to her!!! If I was thinking, I would have had it sent directly to her (of course, after I ordered it I discovered a LNS that I COULD have bought from!!!). I love blues and purples, so these are just perfect for me!

Walking to Town Update

Here is my latest update on "Walking to Town".

I have to say - I was VERY impressed with the customer service from Dimensions. This is a kit (I bought it when I first got re-bitten by the stitching bug, and wasn't sure I wanted to invest in fabric, and floss, etc, etc.....). I ran out of one color of floss (hard to see in the picture...but toward the middle there is a steeple, and it's half white and half purple, the purple being kind of the "shadow side" and I didn't have any purple left when I got to it). I e-mailed Dimensions (dummy me forgot to include my snail mail address, guess I thought they could e-mail me the floss!!!), they responded the following morning asking for my address. That was toward the end of last week, and this morning I had floss in my mailbox! (May have been there for a while, I hadn't been to the PO Box in about a week and a half). I was very impressed!!

One page completed!

Well, I've finished the first page of Angel of Cross Stitch (although it's page 4, since I started in the middle)....

Now I'm working on the fractal freebie for March. Because, of course, I needed another project!!! Maybe this weekend I'll bring home "Walking to Town" and update my progress on that too.
