Olympic Stitching

I got a little more done on "Pansies Please". I'm still behind in the SAL and probably won't catch up while the Olympics are on. I found it very difficult to stitch with all the color changes while watching and cheering on the USA teams. The progress I did make was done while watching the NASCAR race.

Since it was so difficult to stitch with the color changes I decided to start another of the "Quaker Christmas Smalls". This one I'm doing on a piece of 28 count linen from my stash (no idea what the color is called) with Caries Creations "Bull Frog". On this one the background is stitched and the design is left blank. The chart has 3 different designs and each is done both ways. I will do the other two designs like this one. I think one will be done in Red and the other in Blue. Then I'll do them as I did the ornament for the exchange.






Until Next Time....Happy Stitching GO USA

These ornaments are so beautiful. I guess I'll have to get these too. You're as always as good in enabling as you are in stitching...which is lovely again...also the pansies. Watching Olympics here too :)

Nice progress. I understand completely about stitching and watching the olympics. I had to put my fractal away and start one with less changes!
I am also doing the quaker christmas small ornaments. I am doing it on 40 ct.
