WIP updates – QC and MMM

Miss me? Thought so!
I have been stitching some. I finished a piece for a Halloween exchange but I am thinking about adding a little something extra for it. We will see. There is still some time until Halloween rolls around so I should be able to get it stitched, finished and mailed in time.

After I finished the exchange piece I decided to be a good girl and not start anything new, even though I was dying to! I started working on Miss Mary Mack again and also Quaker Christmas.

And here is Quaker Christmas. I have decided after much deliberation to stitch the words in english since translating them to Icelandic would be a really big job and I would have to change the design a lot for the Icelandic letters to fit in. Some words would work, like Peace – Friður in Icelandic, but some just don’t work, like Merry Christmas – Gleðileg Jól. Just doesn’t fit. So it is being stitched as charted.

It is very hard to take a picture of this piece because the stitches are so tiny. I am going to try to take a better picture of it outside when it is not so cloudy. I got cought up with my blog reading today but didn’t leave a lot of comments because I ran out of time. I am really trying to limit my time on the computer as much as possible. But, I do read, and I do love all your pretty work. Thanks for understanding 🙂

    Both are coming along nicely.

  3. I love both your WIP! Your Quaker Christmas, stitched on 40 count linen, must come out like a masterpiece, once finished.
    I see what you mean, I am trying to limit my time on the computer as much as possible, too. Hours fly there…
