Kitten Projects

That's what I've been working on this week, but I've not made a lot of progress, as usual.

Someday, I'll not only have days to just stitch, I will prevent myself from being distracted by computer games and other flotsam and actually get some real progress :D

Anyway - Snowing!

I doubled what I had done.  Doesn't make it a lot.  It is tiny on this 28ct!

I'm still quite slow with parking, although I must admit I'm enjoying it a lot.  It's keeping things interesting.  I'll never know how some people can keep track of dozens of colors, though.  I'm having a bit of trouble with six needles getting all tangled up.

Here's a full-picture with a red square showing how much I've done so far.  I think it's going to pick up speed as I get more used to the parking method.

Today was my day to see how much I could get done on Fred, since I thought I was going to a very quiet job site.  Usually I have hours to work on a project there, but not today!  It was almost as busy as my other job sites!  Yech.  But I got a bit done.

All the light blue finished up on the one book, some of the black, and down a bit more on the other book.

He'll get another day or two this month.  Should be enough to finish his main crosses up.  Then it's on to the crosses that I have to use gold blending filament with.  There is also a lot of backstitching, french knots and couching in my future.

I got another HAED layaway paid off, but I'm not going to drown you guys in pics this time!  I'm sure you're tired after all those WSnB pics!  So I will show you the new pretties one at a time.  First - Glamour by Marta Dahlig.  I've wanted her for a while.  I love the way she makes you look twice.  I'm going to try and stitch her without the grey background to save a few years off my life.  She isn't in my immediate future plans, though.  Not even to buy floss for, at the moment.  I'm kitting up 'Amanda and Axel' and 'Asian Fantasy 3' first.  Then she might get her turn.
