Well, here is my progress on "Walking to Town". I have finished all of the regular stitching, except for one small part (if you look REALLY hard you can probably see it, it's in the bottom right corner area, right below the second row of the fence) where I ran out of the floss. It's been a little frustrating, it's the third time I've run out of floss. I don't THINK I'm wasteful when I stitch, and I keep barely running out, but still!!! And Dimensions has been good about sending me more, so I can't complain too much. Now it's on to back stitching and beading. It calls for French knots for snowflakes, but I can't do rather than aggravating myself, I'm going with beads.

And I completed another week on Angel of Cross Stitch. It's coming along pretty well. Now it will be a few weeks before I pick it up again. Today starts my one day a week SAL (well, I'm stitching one day a week, don't know what anyone else is doing) on the Monopoly board. I got my fabric Thursday. I think it's about as close to perfect color wise as I was going to find. It's a light seafoam green aida. I think it should be a fun stitch!

Oh well, that's it for me - hope everyone has a great week!!!

Great almost finish! The beads may make it look more like sparkling snowflakes anyway! Your AOXS looks great too!
