What if I do both......no guilt and satisfaction....what could be better! Teehee.
So here's my (start!) of completing the UFO's. Here's the before picture of good old Max the cat....
....just waiting on the back stitching to complete him. And here 's how he looks now...
The top panel of Max (there's three altogether) is back stitched and looking good.
And as for the satisfaction of a new start? Well this little design was added to my on-line cart while Christmas shopping......no idea how that happened..... I blame Santa's elves for getting the order mixed up :)
It's another lighthouse design.....you know how I love anything to do with the beach and lighthouses! This one is stitching up extremely quickly. The sky is made up of only half stitches so I feel like I accomplished so much in just one week. The bottom part of the design has mostly full cross stitches so won't be completed quite so quickly. My plan is to do another panel of Max before I do any more of the lighthouse design.....and since I really want to work on the lighthouse, Max will be done!
And here's a fun crochet project my daughter and I did for Christmas gifts for two Viking lovers in our family....
The pattern for the helmets can be found here. We found that the hats were a bit too large so we adapted the pattern a bit so that they fit better. They were fun to make and I have to say they were a HUGE hit on Christmas eve....well worth the effort.
Thanks for stopping by!
Until next time....happy stitching!
