An Update of Sorts

I spent most of this week stitching for my partner in the "Ready For Spring" Exchange", which of course I won't post a picture of until she has received it. The deadline for mailing is March 1st.

Because of this I made little progress on the Peacock and the Hummingbird. I will wait until next week to post pictures.

However, being a certifiable serial starter, I did start a couple of little projects this week. The first is as SAL called Whole World Biscornu. Each month we will be stitching a biscornu representing a different country. The first one is Russia. (The site is Russian but includes a English translation.) This is my progress so far. I am stitching 1 over 1 on 25ct cream DMC evenweave.

The second is another SAL offered by Alessandra Adelaide Needleworks. It is called "A Christmas Tree". I decided to make it ornament size and am stitching it 1 over 1 on 32ct Parkland Belfast Linen from Silkweaver. I have completed the first part. The next part comes out at the begining of March. The pattern calls for 10 different shades of green (DMC) and gold and red MH beads.
Despite these 2 projects (and the TW 12 Days of Christmas Ornaments that I am also stitching), I am not a big fan of stitching 1 over 1. Its seems like I spend a lot of time "frogging" when I do this type of stitching :(.

Don't Forget to check out my giveaway ending February 13th. See the post above. All you have to do is post a comment on that post for a chance to win.

Happy Stitching!!!!!!!!!!!
