2 Quick Progress Updates

Well, I got busy last week and never posted my progress on my fractal. So...there's my fractal which was in the rotation for the week BEFORE the one that just ended. The other picture is my progress on "It's 5:00 Somewhere". Even though 5:00 Somewhere isn't exactly a Christmas picture, I am doing it (twice!) for Christmas gifts, so I worked on it during my Christmas week in my rotation. Now it's back to Angel of Cross Stitch. I will probably keep that one on the front burner for two weeks - since we head for Vegas Friday - Monday, there won't be any stitching done this weekend coming up!!!

Thanks for checking out my blog... I'll try to be better about posting weekly!

Angel of Cross Stitch progress

Latest and greatest progress on Angel of Cross Stitch! Now it's on to a week of the freebie fractal for the month. I'm liking this rotation plan, keeps me from getting bored with any one project. I did go to my LNS and buy some new fabric for Frederick the Literate (which will be my next lunch time project after I finish my Walking to Town) and also the supplies (floss, fabric, and charms) for my TWO copies of "It's 5:00 somewhere" that I'm making for two good friends.

Walking to Town Progress

Well, here is my "work" lunchtime sanity break is stitching on this. It's coming along quite nicely (if I do say so myself) although not as quickly as I would like. I look at my pictures, and I HAVE made substantial progress, it just takes a while because it's only an hour a day, five days a week (at most....).

When it's done, my next work project will probably be Frederick the Literate. It's a Dimensions kit, but I think I'll trade the fabric out. It's 14 count black aida, and I don't necessarily like aida (although this one is on aida, it was before I tried other fabrics), plus I'm not overly fond of 14 count...I like 18 count better. So, I'm off to calculate the difference in fabric saize and get some better black fabric. That may be tomorrow's that I've found a LNS. (hmmmm....when you use initials that kind of start with a vowel sound...."ell".....would be "an LNS" or is it "a LNS" because it would be "a local needlework shop"......such dilemmas!).

Anyway, thanks for checking out my blog. Hopefully Sunday evening I'll post my week's progress on Angel of Cross Stitch.
