Northwind SAL Week 3!

Ok - no posts in a week and two today. 
Something froze over! 
(well, the temps did fall by nearly 30 degrees since Saturday!)

****************************************************

I think I am going to show our results this week by alphabetical order. Seems I have already been doing that anyway. 

That means Ms Angela is up first!
She thought her progress wasn't much - but I'm rather impressed! And look how fast she is catching up. Give her some cool weather and a chair on the porch --- look out. She'll be framing this baby before we know it.


Next up is Rose ~
(btw - I happened to catch E!'s ninetieth showing of Titanic today. Rose made it to a life boat! And Titanic sank like a rock. Wouldn't you think after that ship sank time after time the people would throw all the wooden stuff overboard and make a floating platform for those unable to get a lifeboat???) Sorry - got off track there! 
Anyway - Rose got a great start to her lettering! And she is ready to fly along next week! 


Shari, Shari, bo-berry is up next ~  
Now you want to see a machine stitch - check this out! She has hit the bottom of the lettering. Holy Smokes - She has a few lines on top and she'll be putting the verse to rest! 


And now --- me. I've managed to get 2 of the 3 birds in (like that's a shock) and the top half is fini! Thinking this next week will find me finished with the verse too. And then the BARN and GRASS. Almost solid stitching for the bottom quarter of this baby. Screech! Those are the brakes being applied and the wheels coming off. 


Ok kids - since I've managed to post twice this week (umm, today) I'm off to create havoc somewhere!

Fabulous progress ladies!! There's something about the long red T that I adore in this piece. Those birdies are getting caught up in the wind!!
