Two Real Ornaments Before Leaving

So, I've been busy this past couple of days finishing ornaments to send out before I get on the plane on Saturday. The bargello that I finished on Sunday is now a real ornament, as is the January Heart I finished way back in February. It's amazing what a deadline can do! I kind of like the way the bargello came out better than the heart, though.

January Heart Finished!

I managed to finish this on Sunday - it was halfway done and I just decided it was time to finish. Looks pretty good. I'm going to finish it into an ornament and give it to Muriel, who gave me the needlecase I showed off a couple of weeks ago. This makes three finishes on my Ten Project Challenge. The picture didn't get taken until today because my husband was off in a foreign country for the week.

The Small Pieces

Both these pictures were taken on Friday, so they don't show current progress. I worked on both today, adding some to the edges on the mini mandala and completely finishing the January Heart. You won't see a picture of the completed stitching until next weekend, though, as my husband and his camera are both in France. That makes three complete projects for the 10 Project Challenge on the Wagon. I'm getting there! Today, I taped the pattern for the Silk and Metal GCC from Kay Stanis on my kitchen window and the silk on top of it to trace tomorrow. It's my new start - another piece of goldwork!

January Heart for Valentine's Day

See? I really am progressing on this. Last night I finished the second of the two upper lobes and started the row below the bottom one half stitched. Got maybe an hour and a half's work on this to do, at most. Maybe I can finish it up for a Valentine's Day present.

January Heart and Midi Mystery

Both of these made visible progress last week - there's just nothing really interesting to say about them except they should go faster! I think I'm almost done with the arches, finally. As for the heart, since this picture was taken, I've almost finished the top two lobes. It should be done rather soon.

Mini Mandala and January Heart

Considering how small these are, it's a wonder they're not done. At least each made some progress this week. Hopefully I'll be able to finish them off very soon.

January Heart

Every year in January, my local EGA chapter (Pocono Mountain) does a heart project. This year was no different, and I had signed up and paid for it before I found out about the 10 project challenge so... i ended up starting it Monday night. It's sideways. Don't blame my husband, I didn't tell him which side was up! The light pink is the widest point of the heart, so it should be a quick finish. It's just a really simple cross stitch piece.
