Angel of Cross Stitch

Here is my progress on Angel of Cross Stitch for the week. All that's left on page 3 is the border...sigh. The border is a pain in the neck! Each of those flowers you see have 12 stitches - 8 of one color, 2 of another, and 1 each of two more colors. And they come in sets of two.
So...tons of confetti stitches are in my future! But, when I finish page 3 I'll be halfway done with the regular stitches! YEAH!!!!!

Today it's Monopoly, then this week in my rotation is Book of Ink Circles.

And on a different note - how about the Olympics! It's been so much fun watching them, and it brought back memories. The year the Olympics were in Atlanta, one of the rowers was the brother of one of my co-workers. She was pregnant, and wasn't allowed to travel to Atlanta to see it in person. Of course, rowing not being one of the more popular sports, it was televised during the day. She and I were working very closely on a project, and so we would save the "portable" parts of the project and go up to one of the waiting rooms (I worked in a hospital at the time) and watch the Olympics coverage until the rowing came on. I think they took bronze, and her brother sat in the front part of the boat so you saw them a lot behind the gold medal boat. It was the closest I've ever come to knowing an Olympic athlete, so it was especially exciting!

Anyway, thanks for checking out my blog!

Angel is looking fantastic. Looking forward to seeing if you get to Free Parking on Monopoly.

I've watched every minute of the Olympics I can and have really enjoyed it too.

I can see where the border would drive anyone crazy, but the outcome will look great!
