HEAD & Breadcloth updates....

Over the weekend I finished page 30 of the Dance of the Graces.   I just LOVE the cheerful colors on this piece.  Makes me smile everytime I pick it up to stitch on it! 

Was able to start the stitching on my special project and made good headway on that one as well.

I also got all the stitching and beadwork completed on Mom's breadcloth.  Just need to clean it and put the backing on it.

Last Friday my LNS held a class on making an ORT Bag.  This will introduce several new stitches that I've yet to do.  It will be fun trying out new stitches and working with silks for the first time.   When I've gotten a little further along, I'll post pics on this as well.

My daughter has just started joining me in going to my LNS for stitch-ins.  She is working on L&L's Celtic NOEL.  She is stitching her on 28ct Black Laguna. 

I also received a BEAUTIFUL ornament from Laurie in New Zealand from the TT2 Ornament Exchange.  She did a lovely Hardanger ornament!  It is beautifully stitched!  Thank you Laurie for this lovely ornament!
