Weekend Goals

The weekend is here again and I'm looking forward to NASCAR, Football and Stitching. I have set a goal of finishing three things this weekend.....



First.... This is another Lizzie Kate design for my DD Manda. Almost done stitching this one. I again have used threads from my stash to stitch the design and no one would even know the difference unless they saw a model stitched or stitched it themselves with the colors called for. I still need to get a silver spider charm for the top of the hat. I'm going to finish it into a wallhanging with the same fabric I used to make her Flatfold.



Second.....



This will be a very dramatic Biscornu. I had stitched the top (Grey with Black) top last Spring but have been putting off finishing the bottom on Black. As you can see in the picture the bottom is almost finished now. The fabric is 32 count and I'm stitching the design with #12 Perle Cotton. It is one of 5 free designs from http://www.cross-stitch-directory.com/ call Tudor.





Bottom

32 count Black Linen with DMC #12 Perle 415


Top

32 cout linen (not sure of color name) with #12 Black Perle Cotton




Third Goal.....


The last project I want to get done this weekend is Pansies Please. I will work on that on Sunday and should be able to finish it so I can kit up the next Just Nan project for the Sunday SAL.


Those are my plans and I think they are doable (is that even a word). What are your plans for the weekend?


Until Next Time (with some finishes)....Happy Stitching

Your goals sounds doable. I didn't have any goals, which is good since I haven't gotten any stitching done. I hope to on Sunday, football day!

Enjoy your stitching and Nascar! I did what I wanted this weekend, and that was to sew some more leotards for Tamsin, got some stitching done on my John Clayton piece, did some S.E.X and the weather was great. :))

Joy said...

I am SURE you met your goals! I am trying to whip my needles in shape with yours! LOL Thanks for the biscornu freebies you enabler you! :-)

Great goals and stitching Rene. That Halloween design for your daughter is very cute. I LOVE the biscornu. It looks very stunning. And I'll cross fingers that you also get Pansies Please done. :)
