|Stoney Creek Reptiles and Amphibians|
This first pic is my progress on the Love Quilt Square for Brody. You can see a bit of the tree in the center and I am still on my first coil of snake. The colors are soooooo pretty. I am a sucker for greens. I know it doesn't look like much, but its coming along. My goal of finishing page 1 by the end of May was a bit ambitious. I began with the largest page of stitching, BUT I will have page 1 done by the end of the first week of June. My hands are just itching for that birth sampler.
|Lizzy Kate "Sisters"|
This next pic is of Lizzie Kate's "Sisters Forever". The colors are so pretty. I am using the DMC alternatives. Since my DS loves to touch the threads, I have to wash my stitching. It's tough keeping the hands of a 20 month old clean. Especially when his best friends are Yorkies. Who knows what those three get into. I am using 28 count Lambswool Jobelan. I am really glad I decided to use the recommended fabric. It makes that first color really jump out at you. Too bad I don't have any sisters. I would love to have one of these for myself. I may have to break down and purchase "A Brother". I am soooooo liking Lizzy Kate and U2 right now. In case I have not mentioned it before. I am a U2 freak. I have been since the 6th grade. I even remember having a crush on the Edge. He is so my type and ironically does not look anything like my DH. Go figure.
Well folks, that's it for today. I will have some stitchy updates on Tuesday with hopefully some fabulous progress on both stitches. And yes Joysze, I am one of those who LOVES new starts, but I LOVE finishes even more (LOL). Hopefully I will have a couple more finishes in the near future. I have some great coupons from the local craft stores, so I will be gathering supplies for a flat fold finish soon. Wish me luck and I hope everyone has a wonderful week-end.
