Saturday Morning

Well, it is now Saturday morning and the sky is blue and the sun is shining brightly - go figure! Doesn't matter - I had a lovely and productive evening!

This UFO was started like two years ago. You saw it last when I finished the stitching on it. Last night I added the beads and the star button. This is Wee Santa '97 from HIH.



Then, some of you may recall that early this year I completed the needlecase from Cindy Valentine called Apricot Elegance (only mine is done in mint green!) The stitching has been done for months, but I couldn't get myself to make the cording to finish it off. Yes, I finally tackled that cording last night and here's the finished product:



Will there be more updates this weekend? Watch and see!

What a beautiful finish. I love the green. We also cancelled plans because of 80% chance of rain...haven't seen a drop yet! Oh, well, more time home stitching.

It turned out beautifully, Cathy! So tell me, overall, was this a difficult one to stitch and finish? I've been thinking of buying the chart for myself one day, so I was curious as to how you found it. :)

Wow, Cathy! Congrats on putting the finishing touches on AE. What a treasure for your stitching basket!!

Sorry that it seems your camping trip was cancelled for nothing. Perhaps another weekend will work out.
