Another Finish and WIP's

Kelly has received her package from me and now I can share the lil Piggy I stitched for her. I received the fabric as part of my Bingo prize and as soon as I saw it I knew I had to use it for this project.
"Small Pig" free design from Cyberstitchers
Stitched on 18 count hand dyed Aida
with DMC

WIP's....
This week I have been concentrating on two projects.
"Pansy Sampler Ornament" by Victoria Sampler
The members of my Hardanger Class will be joining me in a SAL doing the "Pansy Sampler" and I thought it might be fun to do the free ornament before we start. Just have to do the needle weaving and then add some beads and pearls and make it into a ornament. This was really quick and fun to do so far.
I finally have gotten back to the "Sugar and Lace Needleroll" ornament. All the stitching is done and today I'm cutting and then will do the needle weaving and add the gold beads before finishing into a needleroll. At the rate I'm going it's going to take me all day just to do all the cutting.

I hope to have both these projects finished by the end of the weekend. What's up next? I'm not sure, will just stick my hand in the WIP basket and pull out a couple more projects or maybe even start a new one.
Until Next Time.....Happy Stitching from WINDY Las Vegas

Cute Piggy!! I finally found the cupcake holders, but I didn't care for the color pack they came in. I'll have to keep looking. Your hardanger and needleroll project are so elegant looking!

I love the pig! How adorable! The hardanger looks great too. I haven't decided if I will do the pansy sampler but knowing me I probably will!

Your cupcake is the cutest ever! I love it! Sugar and Lace - very elegant. I love it! Pansy sampler - sooo dangerous... Love it but I'm scared just by looking at it. I still didn't get brave enough to cut my little "sweet dreams"...

awwww I have the same little piggy. I like what you have done with it. Very cool. I looked at all those stitches and just as fast as I looked, I looked away lol. Your WIPS are very beautiful.
