a finish and some progress...

In my last post I showed you some partial happy dances, one of which was super close to being finished - my maple leaf... well my beads arrived in the mail yesterday and after a fun evening out with friends, I just had to sit down and finish it up.

So here she is in all her glory...

Maple leaf by AAN
Stitched on 28ct white joblean with DMC 815

I really like the way it turned out, and it was a fairly quick stitch too. Very enjoyable!

I also made some progress on my canvas project, with the backstitching on it. So far so good... It is actually going quicker than I thought it would.

And last but not least, here is my progress on Elizabeth... since it was a long weekend here, I didn't get any stitching done on Sunday on her but Monday instead. Here is where I am...

That dress is a killer! It doesn't look like its very big, but it seems to be taking forever to finish it off... I know that I still have lots of big blocks of colour left to stitch on this project at the bottom, but I really hope they go faster than this darn dress! Other than taking what seems forever, I am really liking the way she is turning out. I know Barbi hasn't been stitching on her lately as she has been busy enjoying the summer, but at least this way I can catch up to her!
