Another A for Angel

I can finally show what will definitely be my last finish for the year - Carriage House Samplings' 'A for Angel', but in pinks and purples for a pink Stitching Diva who had a special birthday yesterday!


I had such fun playing with colours to find ones I liked. The main pink is Crescent Color's Pricky Pear. I can't remember what the rest were but they're all Crescent Colors or Gentle Arts threads. The edge is stitched with Delica beads and it ended up being a scissor fob/ornament/thingamabob.

This was number 7 on my Project Challenge. I'm speeding through the numbers thanks to Christmas ornaments so I've decided to up the challenge to 50! I need to go on the Wagon next year anyway because it'll be so expensive moving, so I might as well count projects while I'm at it. I've certainly got enough supplies to keep me busy - even if I stitch 24 hours a day! I'll update my original post for the 50 challenge...

I've also been working on Pompeii Garden (I finished part 3 last night) and my Christmas start - Spring Snapperland. My New Year start will be Toccata II by Drawn Thread. Tash and I are having a SAL of one motif a week. I'll show piccies another day with my 2006 overview and my 2007 goals (so prepare yourselves for a giggle at those!)

  2. That looks lovely! Great colors.

    Just read your stitching goals for next year. They are quite ambitious :) but I do think you can do it all and more! You're such a speedy stitcher.
