Lots of updates - lots of pics!

And I have once again managed not to blog for almost a month! Well, it's not because I haven't been stitching. I've done quite a bit over the last few weeks actually. So here's an update (I apologize for the wrinkly fabric, I simply did not have the time to iron the fabric this morning):

Beloved Child:
It's finally finished!! I'm going to get it framed over the next week or so. It is so good to see the final result - and so good to return to my other projects. It took just about two months to finish for me (not counting the one month I spent in World of Warcraft):

"Beloved Child" today - finished!

After the finish I picked up on Envy once again:

Mini Citrine:
After the page finish on Envy, I picked up the Mini Citrine, which I have not worked on in ages! This is also my first full row finish on a HAED!

QS Sapphire - NEW START:
For my birthday (the 23rd of Nov.) I received materials from the hubby to start a new cross stitch design. I chose to start QS Sapphire by Rachel Anderson, simply because I think the colours are stunning!:

That's it for this time around. I'll be working on QS Sapphire for a while now (until the first full page finish).

Happy Stitchings!

Another update - sooo close to the end!

I stitched quite a bit last week, and I am very pleased with my progress. I have to have the project done and framed by the 15th of december, and I think that should be doable :-)

However, this week is extremely busy due to the fact that I have to correct something around 90 essays, 30 tests and give grades to 100 students - that will be so much fun! Or something.

Here's my progress since my last update:

As of October the 30th

As of November the 5th
Right - so back to work for me!

Happy stitchings!
