I'm Ba-ack

...Or almost... I'm still dead busy with work. But here is something that I have been working on lately, it was a Christmas gift for my mother. The desgin is called "Spanish Beauty" and it's from Lanarte:

Hubby with finished Spanish Beauty :-)
I also received a fantastic birthday present from the hubby (my birthday was in November): Two new cross stitch charts from Heaven and Earth Design:

Mini Citrine

Mini Opal

The Citrine is my birthstone (November) and the opal is my husband's birthstone (October) - at least to some different webpages on the internet :) Nevertheless, the designs are gorgeous - especially the Opal one in my opinion.

I started the Mini Citrine almost as soon as I got it. Here is my current progress:

Mini Citrine as of January 9 2012

I have decided to put Envy on hold for a bit. I feel the project is a wee bit too big for my taste, and the stitches are very small compared to what I usually stitch. So I think I will continue with the Citrine for a while :-)
