A new canvas

This is a small one for my tree of Chrismons!

And next up is this DJ Designs piece. I think this is the 4th one I've stitched (basset hound, shih tszu, lab with ball, this black lab)

The stitch guide is of course by Carolyn!

Closing Ceremonies

I love stitching with the Olympics on TV. It's a wide variety of sports that you can pseudo pay attention to and still understand what's going on. My project this year was the Alabama belt for my dad. Here's the progress at the end of the closing ceremonies. 

This first picture is what is left to stitch.

Almost done!  A few more inches to go!

Olympic sized challenge

Another challenge!   Let's see if I can finish this belt by the time the closing ceremonies occur. I've made great progress so far!

Basset Hound Finish!

So I didn't finish this piece in early January, but I put the final stitch in on January 28th. 

Here are a few progress pictures:

The background is from Needlepointing In Your Nest by Carolyn Baird. Carolyn also did this fabulous stitch guide!

The basset is done!!
