OK, so not the most original title for a post, but it's 11:00 PM and I've had a tiring day...LOL And after 6 days of "starts" I'm getting a little punchy...
Today was a busy stitching day. It's not JUST Day Six of the Crazy January Challenge, but it's also UFO stitching day over at Friendly Stitchers Yahoo Group. Not having a valid excuse to escape the wet noodle so expertly wielded by Miss Mouse, I had to put a few stitches into my UFO, Rose Quaker from Wiehenburg and was actually able to finish a rose motif!! Here are the before and after pictures, can you see where I've stitched?
I also wanted to finish step two and step three of the January Mystery SAL and was able to do that as well. Each step is a different color. I still haven't figured out what this is, but from a distance it kinda looks like ET. LOL The colors are a bit off though...it will be interesting to see what it turns out to be.
And my final pictures are actually the first thing I stitched this morning. I decided my Day Six project would be "Lighthouse Sampler" from By the Bay Needleart. I am stitching it on 28 ct. Star Sapphire linen over one thread. Did I just hear a collective groan? It's pretty easy to stitch over one on 28 ct. you should try it!! I'm showing what I've stitched, along with a picture of the pattern. I love lighthouses, and I've been dying to get this started, it feels so good to have this on a frame and ready to roll. It's also a joy to stitch!
So there they are in all their glory. And I'm a tired DJ tonight! So I'll bid you a glorious good night and I'll see you tomorrow...who knows what Day Seven will hold? *Hugs*
