WIP Wednesday update

Well....I missed posting on the day, but I did get some stitching done was WIP Wednesday over at Friendly Stitchers.

This piece is Winter's Majesty.  I started stitching her on Christmas day 2012.  She has been languishing in the corner since August 2013.  I LOVE this piece!!  BUT....there is metallic thread, and blending filament, and Marlette thread, and I nearly lost my sanity!  LOL  I've decided I really want to place her on my I need to get busy.  If I start to act deranged, please gently place me in a rubber room, but let me have my stitching!  OK?  She is going to be my Wednesday WIP, but also one of the Wipocalypse pieces I want to finish this here we go.  Here are before and after pictures of my progress yesterday.

Here is a little close up so you can see the detail of the snowflakes.  It's a challenge with all those short stitches and the metallic thread.  

I finished up another piece...except for the personalization at the bottom.  I'll get to that later, but I'm calling it my second finish of the year.  Unfortunately, I can't show pictures yet, as it's a gift...*sigh*  I'll post it when I have given it to them.

Today I begin stitching on In the Land of the Free.  I've had this in my stash for a couple of years.  I had it on hand in case we did another patriotic exchange over at Friendly Stitchers.  We never had another one...LOL!!  I have always wanted to stitch it for myself though, BUT...I'm going to get it stitched now, and framed.  I'm going to donate the finished product for a raffle for an organization that will help Veterans suffering from PTSD.  I may even stitch one for myself while I'm at it!  Off to get started now!  Have a wonderful stitchy day!
