Catchup Time!

If you read my earlier post you will understand why I didn't feel like posting last weekend.  However, throughout this difficult time I did continue to stitch. It was a great help and now I am ready to post an update.

First off, I finished another Christmas ornament.

  1999 Santa © 1999 The Prairie Schooler 

I also made further progress on "99" and the Sunflower Fairy.

Only 60 more bottles to go. 

I have finished all the the stitching (including the back stitching) and now I am ready to add the beads.

My goal for next weekend is to have all the beading done on the Sunflower Fairy and to complete 6 more bottles of beer on "99".

I am also currently stitching a free chart from Stitchers Anon Facebook page - Holmsey Hare's Haven.   It is called Be Happy and features Holmsey Hare next to a Daisy.  I stitching it in memory of my MIL who enjoyed life to the fullest and always had a smile on her face.   Her favourite flower was a Daisy.

Here is my progress to date:

I am stitching it on a piece of light green opalescent evenweave.

Take care and happy stitching!!!!!!!!
