A Finish....A New Start

I completed my March goal of 2 more of the 12 Days ornaments. I'm now half done with the set and I'm sure I'll have them all done in June. I really do like each one better than the last and look forward to doing the next two.

"One The Twelfth Day..." Day 6 by The Cat's Whiskers
Stitched on 32 count "Summer Khaki" Belfast Linen
with DMC 4210


Being the Serial Starter I am I get to start at least one new project for every finish. I just couldn't resist starting one of the newest charts in my stash. I just love this little stitching angel and thought about how I wanted to do it all day yesterday. It just kept calling my name so last night I opened my box of fabric and this piece of Silweaver jumped right out into my hands. I then opened my box of overdyed floss and right on the top was this Dinky Dyed silk in just the perfect shade of blue. This is my progress from last night and early this morning. I think it will be completed very soon since it's one that is easy to stitch but hard to put down. I'm seeing it in a white frame with a mat to match the threads but we will see what I can find when it's finished. Like most of Sue Hillis designs it will fit into a pre-made frame so I'll be able to do it myself.
It's Friday the 13th so beware of those black cats, and don't walk under any ladders. hehehe
Until next time....Have a Great weekend with lots of time for stitching
