Well, here is my end of the week update. As you can see from my previous post, I have another finish. That is 8 on the year, and that is great considering, I might have had 2 last year, both from the nativity set.
First we have the shepherd. I have been working on the back stitching and finishing up his head and face. He is still missing a hat, but I am going to that last, since it is not as complex as his face. This is a close up. As you can see, I have almost completed his face. I'm stitching as fast as I can!
I also worked on one of the wise men from the nativity. My mom started him way back when, and is not going to be able to finish him up. So I had to make a working copy of my pattern, and then try to figure out which colors she had already stitched. That took a little time, but I think I am ready to start stitching. Don't worry- I am going to finish his face first!
Next I have made progress on thankful heart. This is such a cute and easy pattern. I might keep this one and stitch it for some friends and family. I would probably do some color changes, especially if I did one for my SIL, since she is a pink girl.
I made a little progress on Children are a Gift, by LizzieKate. I focused mainly on the other LK, Love is the Greatest Gift, this week.
Lastly, I thought I was going to get started on a UFO that I have had for a long time.
I was looking at the start today, and suddenly realized that I was stitching in the wrong direction. I had turned the fabric sideways! So I decided I would frog the stitches out and start it correctly so it would fit. Well, after 30 minutes of very careful frogging with my handy dandy Stitch Blade, I got careless and sliced 3-4 threads of the fabric! Arrggghhh! Well, I guess I have to find some fabric now to start over.
