Not finished yet!

As you can see, no finish this week. The confetti at the bottom of this piece is just crazy.

It's a good thing the SAL on the Board this coming week is the Freebie SAL. I'm a bit fried on this handsome boy right now. So away he goes into storage for a bit. I'll be picking up Fragile Heart. She's got big blocks of color so it will be a nice break for me.

It's funny, when I stitch a lot of confetti, I get burnt. But, then I get bored when I stitch a lot of big blocks of one color. Go figure.

Chesterton SK Again

As I said in my last post, I did continue with my handsome young man. Here's the result of the detail stitch SAL from last week. I know it doesn't look like much, but remember, it's the detail/confetti stitch SAL ;-) I'm really in the thick of it now so the going's very slow.
This week is Themed SAL, and the theme is seasons. So, you guessed it! I'm staying with Chesterton. I really only have about half a page left. You'd think I could knock that out and hardly even think about it, but noooooo.... Really, just about every other stitch is a different color, and I'm not a parker, I go cross country. The thing is, the next stitch of the same color feels like it's half an acre away! I'm starting and ending threads all over the place. The back is a mess. Good thing I plan to cover it with fabric!

Chesterton SK Update

I participated in the SWIP/UFO SAL on the board last week with Chesterton.

This week it's the detail stitch SAL, so I will continue with him. It's good for me that these 2 SALs happen to be back to back. I've been using them this year to try and finish Chesterton. I'm close to being halfway finished with the final page. This part is particularly 'fussy' so it fits perfectly in the detal stitch SAL.

Have a good, stitchy week!

Progress on Fragile Heart SAL

Here's Fragile Heart after the SAL from last week. Sitll haven't finished page 1, and page 2 came out already!

The SAL on the board this week in SWIP/UFO so I brought Chesterton SK out of hiding again. I've been using this SAL to get him completed this year, I hope.

Draconis Lepus Leo (Pipsqueak)

This little guys is a joy to stitch! Love, love, love him!!!!! This is my progress Feb. 23 - March 3, 2011.
Of course all my pics are clickable to get the larger view.
Here's where I am on the original, see the white box.

Edited to Add: Thaks laura118, I wanted to explain that and I forgot. I stagger the end of each row when I work on HAEDs because I don't want to get a 'page line' on my work. Sometimes you can get what looks like an indent in your stitching where 2 pages meet along their sides. I've never seen it at the bottom of pages, only at the sides. So that's why it looks choppy at the ends.
