Phuan Update

Worked on Phuan for the SK Freebie SAL this past week.  Here he is before:
And after:

That wallpaper is murder! But I enjoyed stitching on him and I am making some progress.  This week is Themed SAL, and the theme is is feathers/fur/scales, so any chart with a bird reptile/fish or animal works.  Almost all of my WIPs qualify, so it will be a surprise.

Since I'm on the East Coast, Irene may mess up my plans.  I am figuring that I may be without power for a while at the very least.  We have everything battened down, and we are hunkering down for the big blow.  I just hope we don't get flooded.  That would be baaaad.  Hope everyone on the coast is secure, good luck to us all.

Another Page Finish!

This past week was the UFO/SWIP SAL.  I have so many that fall into this category (it's a shame).  So this time I selected and oldie but a goodie, Dark Cherry.  She was my selection for the 2009 Freebie SAL.  I haven't stitched on her since Jan. 2011.  Here she is before the SAL:

Here she is after.  I finished page 2 and started page 3.
Progress on her is pitiful. The end of page 2 was confetti laden, it took most of a day to finish it. The bauble at the bottom (on page 3) gave me a particularly hard time. I did something wrong in there, but I think I fixed it. It still looks wrong when I look at it now...  Have to put her away for a while, till I feel better about it.

This week is the SK Freebie SAL so Phuan is out to play!  They are saying rain for most of the weekend, so I hope to stitch through most of it and make some good progress.

Fragile Heart

I worked on Fragile Heart for the Freebie SAL this past week.  I finished page 2 and started page 3 YAY!  Here she is:
The UFO/SWIP SAL is up next.  I have a lot of those!  Not sure what to pick.  It will be a surprise!

Not a lot of Progress

Goblin Tree came out for the Retired Artists SAL (LR is no longer retired from HAED, but this chart is).  I didn't get a lot of stitching done with my SIL here, but here's the before and after:
This week is Freebie/Smalls SAL, I think Fragile Heart will come out to play.
