A Little Bit of Progress

Thought I'd pop in and give y'all an update on my little stitching project. I don't have much else to show for the month of  February because this little critter has been hogging all of my time. This past Sunday was absolutely gorgeous and I spent most of it outside. Yesterday the wind blew. No, it REALLY blew. Think 50-60 mph sustained winds. All day.We live in the desert, surrounded by dirt. I felt really spoiled. I only stepped outside to chore and came back in feeling a bit like I had been sandblasted. I've heard that people pay good money for facial scrubs and I get mine for free. :)

I know that my stitiching time is about to decrease...dramatically, so I stitched like...well...the wind this month. So here's where I left off last month:

And here's Little Bit today:

It doesn't look like much, but I feel like all I did was stitch this month.

I am going to be really sick of brown, but I'm excited to give him to my FIL for Christmas.

What are y'all doing with your 'extra' day today? I am off to clean out the chicken coop! :)

Looking good! What cute little bear he looks so real. I can't wait to see it all done and in a frame:)

Karin, the bear is really cute!!! I remember doing those diagrams! I did a doe and fawn one year and I felt like I would never get done - but this one sounds like the perfect gift for you FIL!! I can totally hear you on the sandblasting!!! We lived in Midland for 19 years - in the country surrounded by cotton fields - We didn't have snow drifts we had sand drifts!!!

Have a blessed day!!

Oh wow -- this is simply beautiful! I can't believe it's cross-stitched! You've done a wonderful job with this! :)

He's coming along!

Karin, when you have your chicken house clean, drive up and clean mine!

That little bear is just the cutest thing!! Looks like he'll be stepping out of the linen to say hi.

Wasn't that wind storm just something else? The rattling windows and screens and shuddering house kept me up most the night. And then there is the clean up after it is over. Everything outside coated in dirt and leaves. Oh the joy!!

Oh soooo cute. Stitching just takes time. There's no fast way about it. Keep up the great work.

Karin said...

I LOVE this bear - it looks like pic but not cross stitched. Great job!
