My Huge Work in Progress List!

In the Home Stretch

I am so close to being finished with Gracie!

If she's going to be framed for my Mum for Christmas, she has to be done, washed, dry, ironed, and ready to go by the time I go to bed on the 8th.

So even though I'm close, I have to stay busy!  Tomorrow and Friday I won't have much time to stitch - Sunday, either.  So it's down to Saturday and Monday.

I did up all the roses on her skirt (aka confetti-land):

And I am somewhere around 2/3rds done with the ruffle:

I have to finish the last, large bit of ruffle and then go back and do all the metallic bits that I left.

Then she will be done!

I'm thinking of posting my daily progress just to keep myself on track.  We'll see :D

PS - I also have to get my nephew's Lego-Letter name done by Tuesday evening, but I only have to finish backstitching the bottom border on that.  I'll show you guys soon!
