thanks, everyone, for sticking by me through this Advent Alphabet project. i know it's looking a bit raggedy and honestly while it's fun sewing on the linen, it's taking a lot out of me -- the counting and the finding where to start a stitch on the linen! i only hope it will look a lot better when it's washed.. whenever that will be lol
anyway Joysze has just gently reminded me that i haven't posted any pic yet.. so i'm here to tell you that i can't! LOL foiled by my camera, i took a shot of my WIP and the battery just died so i'll have to wait for it to charge up again.
on the bright side, i was so excited to finish the square that i started on another one immediately. HA! how's that for progress? 3 3/4s squares down, 20 more to go! haha ha.. it's a Christmas countdown! anyway, just to keep me going i am posting a pic of what it's supposed to end up looking like..
and another, closer up (i finished Day 2, the little bell, first row, second column)
the other half:
you can just see the faint pencil marks on the side where my nephew (or niece) decided it was a nice sheet of paper for drawing on.. :)
and in other news, yippee! i found a working copy of the chart i lost (actually it was a magazine and i lost ALL the charts, i mean of all things, the magazine had all the pics and in the middle was stapled the charts, just ONE huge page all folded up!) i'm lucky i decided to make a working copy - although that's probably how i lost the whole charts page anyway.. from detaching it from the magazine!! Burda International for those interested.. let me show you the pic of the piece:
okay, with these flowery goodies i must go... it's my brother's 33rd anniversary of his Day of Re-birth and i have to go to work early so i can leave early for mass!
