Page 2 Happy Dance

Finished page 2 of CtS! I really wanted to finish this before the end of the month and I met that goal! Even after going in to work yesterday for three hours. I put a few stitches into page 3 after I took the picture.
I joined another exchange group Exchange Heaven. My first exchange will be a Halloween piece. I've been going through my patterns trying to decide what to do and I made a discovery. I have a sh*tload of Halloween patterns. There are so many to choose from! I will probably make it into a pinkeep. That is my new obsession. Once my partner in the LizzieKate Exchange receives hers, I'll post a piccie of that one.

Long time

Wow, it's been almost 2 weeks since I posted. I have been stitching. I stitched my Lizzie Kate exchange, finished it yesterday, and tomorrow it goes in the mail. Today I went back to my HAED. I have most of the dragonfly finished. I have about 1700 stitches to go on page 2. I hope to have it completed by the end of the month.

Thanks for looking. Have a good stitching weekend.

More CtS

I finished about 3 columns on page 2. There is a lot of confetti stitching coming up on the rest of this page. Oh boy. I really want to get this page done by the end of this month, but I have to work on my LK exchange piece this weekend. Maybe if that goes quickly, I can get this done. We'll see.
I have to brag about my garden some. I made fajitas last night using a green pepper from my garden. It was really yummy. If our cantaloupe and watermelons produce even half of the blossoms we'll be giving away a lot. They are loaded.

Well, I have to go stitch now!

Have a good weekend.

CtS Page 1 HD

Page 1 of Cts is finished - again. I restarted after Michelle at HAED reworked the pattern. I think the column is better, but the medallion is less defined. It looked better in the first version. It's almost like you need to fuse the two patterns together, but I'm not starting again! UH-UH, no way. I'm just going to keep plugging away. We'll see how it turns out.
