Well, it is all Jo's fault! I started something new this weekend.
A little Mill Hill Bead Kit. Hopefully I will have it done for the Blog Hop Jo is scheduling.
Pour ta Fete got a bit of attention:
As did Purple Mountain Majesty:
I stitched very little on the Lizard Canvas as I need some threads to do the background:
And I'm not sure about the gecko's head. I may have to do some ripping.
Plugging away on More than a Rose. That background!
And I managed to start the hemstitch on Red February:
So what did you stitch this weekend?

The important word is TRY!
Pour ta Fete by Lind
I really want to start a new piece as I feel like it might cheer me up a bit. But a bit of progress on one or all of these would also be a blessing!

Well, I am glad I have a reminder on my phone for this lovely little challenge. I was wondering, what have I stitched that could count as a "gift"? Hmmm. Not Purple Mountain Majesty by Gay Ann Rogers-
(The trees are supposed to be half crosses, BTW. They just look a little weird to me.)
Not More Than A Rose by Melinda Sherbring:
You can't tell, but there is a ton of shiny threads on this piece!
Put Pour ta Fete will work! I think the original sampler was stitched as a gift for an aunt! That counts, doesn't it?

Gay Ann Rogers posted a challenge to stitch 15 stitches a day. I'm all for a new challenge! I decided to use Purple Mountain Majesty Heart as it has a ton of tent stitch that needs to be done.
Here is my start:
Ignore the crazy trees. They get another layer and I will fix them then.

New numbers were called for WIPGO, so I have abandoned the Lizard Canvas until I catch up for this month. But I did spend some serious time with Springhill by Rosewood Manor.
Here is where I started:
I'm a slow stitcher so I am happy with my progress. Now to dig out Angel of Love by Lavender and Lace.
