Ok, now on to stitching. I'll start with the Mary Engelbright quilt, which is for my niece Cassady pictured above! It is slow going on it. Not because I don't want to finish it, I just find stamped cross stitch so incredibly tedious. I have no patience for it what so ever! But I do try to pick it up occassionally and do some work on it.
The part that has been completed thus far.
Close up of the area I am currently working on. I hope to finish Mother Goose in the next 2 to 3 "sittings". But of course, I have to pick it back up again!!! Looking for some motivation, other than that deadline of Christmas looming over me!!
Next, my "traveling" piece. This HAED I typically keep in my travel bag. But I had such great comments on it that I pulled it out over the Labor Day Holiday Weekend and worked on it. I am stitching it 2 over 1 instead of my usual 1 over 1. It gives it more of a "tapestry" feel. The jury is still out on which I prefer. Doing it 2 over 1 is definitely more work as it gets difficult to put the needle through. By the way, I am doing it on 25 count Lugana.

Keeping my fingers crossed, I hope to have a finish this week! If I do, I will update the ole blog with a pic!
Have a good week!
