Angel of Cross Stitch Progress

Woohoo!!!! I finished the picture part of Angel of Cross Stitch!!! I had pulled this out and kept it out for a couple of weeks over the holidays rather than adhering to my "normal" weekly rotation. I wasn't sure how much stitching time I was going to have, so I figured I'd leave this one out and stitch away. Then I realized I was getting REALLY close to finishing the picture part (still have half the border to do, plus all the back stitching), so I decided to just plug along and get it done. Worked out well - I stitched quite a bit last night, and then a lot today while we watched football. And just now I put in the last stitch.

So, I'll put this away for three weeks while I rotate on my other three projects. And then I'll tackle the rest of the border!

Thanks for checking out my blog, and thanks for all the comments!!

And oh yeah....HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! Hope 2010 brings you all you wish for!

This is such a neat piece - I don't think I've ever seen anyone actually complete it (lots of starts, but I've never seen a finish). I love that even your gridding is pretty!

She's looking superb :-) I hope the border doesn't go too slowly for you (are you sticking with this for a while to get it done or going back on your standard rotation?)
