Progress!



First off, here is my Olympic project!!!  My friends and I love to figure out what we are stitching when.  It is always exciting to pick projects for specific times of year.  I started this during the Opening Ceremonies (which I thought were just beautiful); but have not progressed too far yet.  Hoping to go stitch the day away today!


 Shockingly, I finished 5 ornaments so far this year!  Above is a super quickie by Pineberry Lane!  I did it in wool and plan to do it again in a green wool. 
 Above and below are ornaments from various JCS Christmas ornament issues.  The skater above is supposed to have more stitching; but I got antsy and wanted to move on to other things....so she is going to remain as is.  Still cute I think.  My friend Linda said I should do the red of her sweater, skirt and hat in wool.  I took her sage advice and I think it looks really cool!!!

 Here is a mini Christmas stocking by Lizzie Kate.  So cute!!!!  Want to do the others in this booklet too.
I could not resist this chart when I saw it.  Those sweaters!!! I am hoping to make a bunch of these and have them finished as you see in the picture on the chart. 

Okay, back to Olympic watching and stitching!!!!  Hope everyone else is having fun with their stitching too!!!

Uh-oh. I'm sorry I dropped by your blog. (smile) I've been so good for the past few months of not buying any new stash, but those sweater ornaments are the bomb! I'm not going near Welcome Stitchery any time soon, but I bet Cathy would be happy to provide me with the chart! I'll see if I can stay strong. Love all of your other finishes, too!
