Today's Stitching Update

Sorry, I haven't been very regular in posting. Work has been busy, the kids are playing summer sports. We go to the lake every chance we get. Fortunately, I have had more time to stitch so here are the updates!

Drawn Thread Game Board Sampler - two more squares finished on the far right!


WIP - this is the Heart in Hand Wee Santa from 1997. I started this about two years ago and am determined to finish it this year. I have some backstitching to do on Santa's face and I need to connect the stars plus attach a star button - he's almost finished!



Finally, I've completely finished the verse for My Sunshine from La D Da. All I have left to finish is the outside border. I must admit, I had some difficulty counting this one - I was trying to do it at the lake and wasn't concentrating as closely as I should have been. Despite a couple minor errors, it looks great - I just might have to fudge the border a little bit! (The fabric looks a bit washed out in this photo - it's more gold in color!)



In addition to these three projects, I've finished stitching three of my upcoming exchanges. I just have to do the finishing. I must admit that I wish I had done the Biscornu Exchange on the SBEBB - the completed projects I've seen on everyone else's blogs are fabulous!

Have a great week everyone!

Hey, Carol, these look great! The last La-D-Da I did also had me triple counting and frogging. Sounds really lovely at the lake. :-)

Good Progress on GBS! We're at about the same point except I started on the bottom. :) I love you Santa and your La D Da piece. I used to sing that to my son all the time when he was a baby... I should make it for him. :) It's so cute!

With all that going on in your life Cathy, I'm glad that you can get away to the lake often!! We really need to get out in our trailer - it's been since February. Think it will have to wait till June tho with all the work being done on the house.
