Picture Posting

As promised, I have taken pictures of my progress on a couple of projects. The first is the Friendship Sampler RR. I had Michele's, who requested that we stitch with a red color scheme. She enclosed some different threads in different shades of reads. I chose Pink Azalea (by The Gentle Art) to cross-stitch the heart. I satin-stitched the little squares with Pink Quartz (Belle Soie) - never have stitched using silk floss was a treat. For my name & state, I used Noir (Belle Soie), as per her request. It was fun...I hope that Michele likes did come out slightly pink, as per the name of the colors, but it was in her package so I hope that it is ok. All I have left to do is to find a postcard representing the area I live in, write a little message and send it all off...I hope to have this done tomorrow and get it in the mail on Monday.

My other project that I am working on, as per my earlier post, is Frosty Friend. Here is my progress:

This is an ornament from the 2008 Just CrossStitch Ornament issue. I am hoping that it will be a quick stitch, because this just might be a little surprise for my grandmother who might be coming to NC to see her great-grandson play hockey. Still keeping my finger's crossed. is time to hit the hay! Good night.
