Come visit with me as I stitch and craft my way from one Christmas to the next - I like to have Christmas projects close by me all year. I have a particular fondness for Santas and Angels. If you have the time, leave a comment so I know you've visited.

More progress ...



I finally feel as if I am really making some progress on Jolly Old Fellow. I am always slow to 'get into' a project (that's the main reason I do just one at a time), but bonding with Jolly Old Fellow has taken a record time for me, as usually after working on a project for this long I would have finished it! I'm now about half-way through page 4, and now that I've started using some greens it really does feel like a Christmas project. I am going to try and finish page 4 before April 20, to give me a chance of getting page 5 almost done by the end of this month. Then there's not much to do on page 6, so I hope to have the first 'layer' done and dusted by mid May. That's the plan, anyway.

I feel some beading coming on soon, so I'll take a little break after finishing pages 1-6, and make some beaded angels and bookmarks, and also maybe a few cross-stitched ornaments. I'll wait and see what flows.

You really are coming along! I am amazed how much you have stitched just beginning in January! Can't wait to see more.

Your progress is amazing, just ask any HAED stitcher! It is nice when a new color appears, isn't it? And in this case the red and now green, I think would also make me start feeling Christmas coming on. Taking a break is good. Hope to see some new ornaments soon.
