Reptiles

I do not give this piece much time. I tried to work on it the other night, but the cat thinks that I want to play with him when I sit in my stitching chair. What is up with that?

This is where I left off last month:

And here is where I am today. Not much-maybe 60 stitches, but it is better than nothing.

I Made a Mistake

I made a mistake but I am leaving it as it is. Why? One reason is I can't find it. The other is that I don't think it will matter in this little piece. But I also realized that I am missing a thread. That I need to find!

Finished the Pilot

Can't show you a photo of the piece, but here is my ort jar with the threads I used.
Guess what color it is?

I Stole It!

Ok, I did ask if I could have it as my son wasn't using it. This needlecase was made by my DS as was the scissors fob. He did a great job of adding magnets to keep the scissors in place and another pair to keep it closed. See why I NEEDED it? Yep, he is studying to be an engineer. The scissors stink though so I may need to replace them.

First Christmas Stocking Angel

 The above is where I left off about a month ago. And here is where I am today.
Not much and it won't be done this year, but at least it is getting a little attention each month.
But if you want to see a lovely Christmas stocking progress, check out Cross Stitching Librarian
She is fast!

New Threads

I ordered some threads for my guild as prizes and was very naughty and got some for myself. How could I not when http://colourcomplements.com/ has such lovely threads and choices. Now if she would just send me extra stitching time....
No, I am not sure what I will use these for, but I am sure there is a project in the basement that needs these threads.

Very Little Stitching

I am working on a pilot class for ANG. It is fabulous and reminds me why I belong to several guilds. BUT I cannot show it to you. So sad. It also needs to be done before April 1 and I just started it last week. Thank goodness it is small.  Because I decided to work it on black canvas, I can't take it with me so I worked on this piece while attending my local guild meeting yesterday.
Since that is the only day I have worked on it, there isn't much progress. But some progress is better than no progress.
