Stitching Done on SAL's

I actually got some stitching done on my SAL's this weekend. All was quiet on the home front so it gave me plenty of time to spoil myself with movies and stitching.

Friday - Santa Day SAL

I am almost half done with the "Charmed 12 Days". Will work on it again in two weeks since this Friday will be spent on "Christmas Soldiers" stocking.

Saturday - Smalls SAL

This is the start of "hop!" Needlecase Fob by Just Nan. It took me longer than I thought it would to do the outside border. It has a lot of over 1 stitches in it. I know the pansy looks upside down but will right itself when the piece is folded in half to make it a case. I should be close to a finish on this one next Saturday then I'll be doing it all over again for myself.

Sunday - Just Nan SAL

"Queen" is really close to taking her throne. I finished Band 13 today and there is only 1 more to do. The last band is a large one (similar to the top band) and will probably take a couple of weeks to complete. It should be all finished by the end of the month. The bottom picture is of Bands 11,12 and 13. Several people said they wanted to see them close up so here they are. If you want to see a larger picture of the complete piece you can see it in my Webshots album (link in the sidebar).
I'll be working on several projects I can't share yet; Biscornu for a exchange on my ILCS group and 2 Birthday gift. I know the people these are for read my blog so will keep them under wraps for now.
Hope you have a great week with lots of stitching....Until next time....Happy Stitching

Just having a chance to read some blogs!!! Thanks for the close up!!! I love the little lady bugs, I clicked on the picture and it enlarged nicely for me. I finished the front of my exchange biscornu last night!!! My DH goes to the DR. tomorrow.... he has high blood pressure too, but this is his first visit since the death of his Dad by the stroke, so I hope he tells him and does a bit more about his high BP this time, maybe I will have to go too.... LOL
