We'll be starting Great Harvest first in a couple of weeks.  I am also this close to finishing my Mermaids, here is a little peak....

I hope to finishing all the stitching, and back stitching, by the weekend so I can do the beading.  There are a ton of beads to add and I can't wait to get this  finished!

Have a great week everyone and Happy Stitching!!

Congrats on the finish Carrie. It turned out great. Sorry I flaked on you. I still haven't found my stitching mojo yet. I have both those Diane charts (have about 95% of her designs). Might start Great Harvest with you and Chelle.

Hi Carrie,

Congratulation! A lovely finish.
Your next SAL is beautiful.

Greetings Manuela

That was way too much fun, along with WAY too much backstitch!!!

I found some really great beading needles at Hobby Lobby. They don't require that you put the strands of floss through an eye. You just pull them up into a catch at the top of the needle. They don't work all the time for every bead, but it's so much easier to just rethread them and go back when the thread comes loose. I hate threading those little beading needles with the eye in them. Very frustrating.

I love the way All Hearts Came Home looks with the stars. Hope they are in my mail today so I can finish that one up.

Anyone who wants to stitch Great Harvest with us please let us know. We stitch on Sundays.
