Challenge Progress


Has it been almost a month since I posted an update on my Challenge pieces ??  Looking back, I see my last post was the day after the Super Bowl and that was February 6th !!

I have been busy stitching on several things including a piece that wasn’t in my Challenge list.  This cute little needle book by Teresa Wentzler.

On the Challenge, Project # 11 was from the Just Cross Stitch October magazine.  It is by Heart Strings and is titles Trick or Treat Tree.   The little decorations are stitched separately and fused to wool felt, then tacked onto the tree giving a 3 dimensional look.  I have ordered 6 tiny candy corn buttons from my LNS to add to the tree branches…

Also finished is Project #6 ~ Glory Bee’s Flying Monkeys.  It was stitched on lime green Cashel linen and has a cute little Bat button attached below the broom.

Then for Project #3 – Stitchy Kitty’s Paws and Stripes  is finished.  It has a little American Flag print heart attached on the center paw.  Isn’t it cute??

I am currently working on Project #9 Dragon Dream’s  Runekeeper.  As shown here, I have completed 4 of the 12 squares, which include The Runekeeper (or Wizard), The Seeker, The Minstrel and The Dragon.

That makes 7 of the 15 projects started the first 15 days of the year that I have completed stitching.  Now to decide how to finish  them ?!?  Of the 7 only 1 has been finished, finished and that is the Frogging Scissors Keeper… I really don’t have a wonderful place to display my work so I have n a very large plastic “Tote” full of stitched up and un-finished cross stitch!  What to do—What to do??
