This is an awful picture (we're under a tornado watch and it's dark and cloudy here today and I just couldn't get the lighting right - the frame is gold, not wood!!), but I still wanted to share my finish! This is a brithday gift for my mom. I made lots of changes in this piece in regards to color and I'm really happy with the end result. I might stitch this piece again for myself and I think I might be stitching a lot more La-D-Da designs in the future. :)
Keep up the lovely stitching that you're sharing. I love seeing what everyone is working on and watching all the projects "bloom".

So yesterday I worked on Day 13 which was 3 Faces of Santa. I restarted this design as I started a long time ago on cashell and hated it. I am currently stitching it on Silkweavers 28ct lugana it is a green color not sure what it is as it is one of their limited edition. I love the feel of the fabric it is so soft. Here is a picture of where I got to yesterday:
And here it is now:
I also worked on my model but have to rip all that I did out. I am so frustrated as I messed up somewhere and not sure where. But that's ok it will get all my attention tomorrow and Sunday.
So day 14 is 2009 Boo club and day 15 is Celtic Spring. Stay tuned to Sunday :)

Think I may run out of room on my fabric. It is 18" across and the letters are about 2" with the pictures added, without the pictures they will be maybe and 1 1/2". Will be doing 4 across and will space added in-between not sure there is enough room. Can you all let me know what you think. This post is also on my blog if you would rather leave comment there. Will leave you with a pictures of my progress so far. The fabric is a pale blue, not sure you can see the color in this picture.

Well I am 2 pages ito the freebie Twilight by Celtic Rose ( freebie no longer available). It really looks so much better in life then it does in this photo, the colors blend a lot better in person. My goal for this week is to get 1/2 way though page 3, the pattern has 9 pages in total . My 2011 goal is to finish this :) This pattern has so much 939 in it and boy after awhile I really get sick of stitching with that navy blue !! Off to go do some stitching :)

This is the project that I'm currently working on. It's LaDDa's "Love Spoken Here". I'm making this for my Mom's up-coming birthday. I still need to stitch the border on this, but at least I'm moving forward. After I finish this, I'm going to paw through my "wanna do" stash and pick out something new and fun to stitch for me! :)
I love seeing what everyone is working on and all the progress that's being made! Thanks for sharing! :)
