When I started the Snow Belles, I just grabbed my threads from stitching Six Fat Men, since the colors were the same. I was fine except for the three stitches on her cheek - she is wearing a little blush on her cheeks, and the Six Fat Men didn't use that color! Since this is my travel project, I kept forgetting to pull that thread to finish off. So, I finally remembered to bring my stitching bag upstairs, make the three silly little X's, and take a picture.
Assuming I don't fall down on the job, there should be another update soon since I'm probably 3/4 of the way done with the SECOND Snow Belle.
Thanks for checking out my blog.

Here's what I have stitched so far - it's 4 pages out of 35. It's slow going, and this will be a VERY long term project, but I am loving it. It's called "Boulevard of Dreams" and it's a Heaven and Earth Designs pattern. It's a Las Vegas sky line. By the time I get to page 7 (the top right corner) there will be the very top of a building (It's the top of the Stratosphere, for those of you who know Las Vegas! LOL)
Here are my statistics on the project so far.....I keep an Excel spreadsheet to track my time (doing that for this one and my other HAED I have in progress).
