First of all...I finished another page of "Coming to Water". 9 done - 7 to go. This one is at the moment my main project. It's a pleasure working on it.
There was also a nice surprise in the mail for me. Carla from the "I Love Cross Stitch" yahoo group was my partner in the Needle and Floss Exchange. And Carla truly spoiled me. I love everything. Thank you so much Carla for all the things you sent. I hope you'll like your package too...and that it soon arrives.
And I started my first HAED and LOVE it. Boy are these charts huge. One "official" page is for me in reality 2 pages. Anyway, I will stitch on this one every Thursday , because I joined a SAL. Soon as Coming to Water is finished, Manhattan Wonderland will move up to take that place in. I'm working on 25 ct Lugana over 1 and to my surprise I'm loving it. I think if the picture would be darker I would have considered a different fabric, or a different fabric color. But for this design with quite a good amount of transparant metallic used in the snow section, white fabric is just perfect.
And there is another start - my new "travel project" which I take with me when I'm out and about. It's meant to be an ornament for Donna's Cancer Cure Project . This piece is dedicated to my Father in Law who is suffering from this terrible disease. It's stitched over one on 25ct Lugana using Threadworx "Shortcake" .
