A Finish and A Start

Good Morning Everyone - It's Friday! Thank Goodness!

Wanted to stop by and tell you I have a finish!

Guiding Light
Heritage Crafts
scrap of linen
DMC Floss
This took longer than expected and those crazy half stitches weren't as bad as I thought they'd be. You had to count a little more than normal but all in all not bad. Think I will do the companion piece for this and then frame them together.

But, did I pick up the companion piece? No. I'm feeling a little wintery and picked up this -

Mine doesn't look quite that good :)

But, it is a start. My first attempt with this was on a Bay Leaf linen and the blue would not show. I know the greens would have been lost too. DH (my color consultant) came to the rescue and we decided on this piece of Coffee linen. The panels reminded me of the collage of the snow people I made. Guess I'm practicing.

Rather fired up with this new SAL in the works. We now number 5 and if anyone else is interested please let one of us know! I've added a spot on my sidebar for the SAL's I'm involved with. That way you can easily see how each of us is doing.

Tomorrow will once again find me watching OSU at noon. Hopefully, we don't make the showing we did last week with Indiana. We won by the grace of God. It sure wasn't anything else.

May your weekend be exciting and fun!
