Angel of Cross Stitch / Chirstmas ABC's

Well, I took a picture of Angel of Cross Stitch LAST weekend, and never posted it to my blog. So here it is in all it's glory - made a little bit of progress on the border.

And here is Christmas ABC's. The floating equal sign is actually two stripes in an ornament - I just stitched them because I had a short length of red floss left and rather than wasting it or tucking it away, I figured I might as well just use it up!

This was a fun weekend - an all day stitching session at a local store (8 of us from our So Cal stitching group) and then a Super Bowl party today. I didn't really care who won the game, but I came within one touchdown of winning $300 in a Super Bowl pool! But alas, the Colts missed their last opportunity to score - if they would have made the touchdown, I would have had the money! LOL

Your angel looks quite pretty. Love also your Christmas ABC.
What a bummer that you JUST missed out with winning a price. On the bright side...it sounds like you had a great weekend.

What a fun weekend...nothing like stitching with a group of friends. Your WIP's look good and Angel should be finished soon.

Great progress work on your ABC's. And your Angel is beautiful. I wish I lived closer to the group to get together with you gals. But it's just a bit too far.

Yes, we all wish they'd scored that touchdown (and another)! But it was a good, clean, close game - don't get much better than that. Angel is almost done - what an accomplishment!

You had so many lovely stitches on the go that I couldn't decide which to comment on so I will just write it all here. I really love AOCS. It looks like you are well on your way to a finish there. Christmas ABC is so pretty! Sorry that you didn't win the pool. I know that would have made for some great stashing.

The angel is almost done - how exciting that must be. I love the colours in the Christmas sampler, too.

That Angel of Cross Stitch is so beautiful! I still remember the first time I saw it in one of the CS magazines years and years ago. I always wanted to do that one someday. I love your ABC also!

You're on the home stretch with your border!!!! That's a fun LK piece. I was with someone Superbowl that one $850!!!! He had to pay $100 for the ticket.
