Finished first of 6 Fat Men

Here is my first of Lizzie Kate's Six Fat Men.  It's been my travel project (which means lunch hours at work, plus the occasional outside stitching session).  I didn't run out of thread on the vertical block, there is a snowflake that crosses over the line at that point.  The other square with the scalloped edges is only partially done - it was a time when I need some mindless stitching.

I'm going to put it aside for a little bit just because I have another project I've been DYING to start as well - it's a My Big Toe design that says something like "Remember, as far as anyone knows we're a nice normal family" just seemed SO appropriate for my family.

Thanks for looking!

Started Love, Quaker Style

For some reason, I've felt drawn to Quaker designs lately.  I found this pattern when I was in Las Vegas the last time, and decided to give it a shot.  It's almost monochromatic (mostly black) with a few splashes of gold and red in different spots.  It's an Aury TM Design.  I have finished page 1 plus a little - basically any motif that had any part of it on page 1, I finished off, even if it overflowed to the page to the right or the page down below (or both!  LOL).  I even started another motif on Page 2 before the week ran out.

I'm also working on Lizzie Kate's 6 Fat Men - had a stitching get-together yesterday and got a lot done on it.  I'm almost done with the first square - when I'm done with it, which should be in the next couple of days, I'll post a picture of it as well.

Thanks for checking it out!
