An illustrated post!

See, I keep my promises, just a bit late! Better to be a low show than a no-show! LOL

I thought I would share my WIPs.

First is Halloween Chorus from an old issue of Cross Stitch! Someone posted their finish of this on 123 two years ago and I just loved it. I found the magazine on Ebay and kitted it up and it's sat there for two years. I hope to get it finished quickly. I don't know what I'll do with it. Too cute for just a pillow, right?





And my finishing WIP of the PS Santa and Friends for Dalene. I chose this just because the deer are so prevalent here in the country and I wanted her to have a bit of Maryland on her tree. I feel very honored my humble little stitching will be going to South Africa. But on a sad note, keep her in your prayers tonight, she has sustained a loss in her family.



Lastly is my Waxing Moon Winter Grows on You. It's probably not easy to see the snow elements of the design in the picture, but there isn't anything else I can do. I am enjoying it, though the frog has come visiting a bit more than I'd like.


See, I'm still stitching. I will say, I like seeing all this progress on these smalls. I love my massive projects, but there's something about the short-term nature of a small project. It's like a spring fling that ends before the shine wears off, but in a good way, LOL. Anyway, once I get the finishing of the ornie out of the way, I will pick up my big projects.

Yes, smalls are the instant [comparatively speaking] gratification of stitching ... and yours are just lovely ... That pumpkin chorus is going to be a hoot when stitched up. How is your CEC Sleepy Hollow coming along ... when I saw the Halloween SAL photos of that piece, I was blown away. I have that chart in my stash but probably won't get to it for months and months so will have to be content watching your progress.

That cat conducting the chorus of pumpkins is TOO cute, Rachel! Can you tell me the exact issue of the magazine that the chart is in? Perhaps I could buy it on ebay...

After a year of doing ONLY small pieces, I am more than ready to start something larger. But, you're right, ornaments offer a "quick fix" and a great feeling of accomplishment :)

Your stitching is looking great on your WIP!!! I LOVE that ornie and will keep her in my prayers!!

I do my thing and you do yours. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, then it is beautiful. If not, it can’t be helped--Frederick Perls
