Last week was all about preparing for bad weather that was predicted to come our way. I must admit, I didn't do much, lol. Stayed out of the stores on purpose and stitched instead! So let's see what I got done. :0)
I've been determined to get a more respectable amount of work done on Garden Party for the Cross Stitch Collection magazine SAL. So I worked with serious intent on the lady I had started. I got her finished! She has a lot of confetti that drove me a bit mad. But looking at the other ladies in this section of the pattern, they don't have a lot of confetti like this one. So perhaps I can whiz through them faster. Here are two pictures of her from the week.
I'm also doing 12 (hopefully I'll get a full 12 done) smalls for the same SAL as Garden Party. I'm doing Christmas ornaments for them. Christmas never truly ends for a stitcher, does it? I got another stocking done on my first small. This will be an entire set of ornaments that tell the Night Before Christmas story. I know it doesn't look like much, but with the progress I've made this week, I'm certain I will have this one finished this month.
I also did some work on a birth sampler that I'll be getting a commission on.
And just a teensy bit of progress on Lady Victoria.
Other than that, our week included some hearty and warming soups with homemade rolls:
Chocolate dipped rice krispie treats:
And games of "find the poodle" when he sits on the pillows that look just like him:
