Progress and Presents


Last week I made good progress on Noah's Submarine. The water on my current page is finished and I've gotten a number of animals/fish stitched up.


On Saturday while working on The Castle I found a boo boo! I was not happy! The section of rocks below the dragon's tali were all one stitch too high! It just wasn't something I could fudge. So out came my fine pointed scissors and out went that whole section! It took me all weekend to get those rocks put in! I was hoping to finish all the Cross Stitch on that page... for obvious reasons that didn't happen. I doubt I'm going to get any time on The Castle next weekend. I'll be attending The International Instructor's Course for TKD being given by Master Lu, it's on from Friday-Sunday.
Today I got a lovely gift in the mail today! Erica one of my fellow stitchers on the Internet offered to pick up the festive issue of A Needle Pulling Thread... my local Chapters was out of copies. Well she sent me this lovely parcel! Thank you Erica!

Dani - Noah's Sub is coming along beautifully. It sure has grown since the fall. The castle seems to have recovered well. congrats

So sorry to hear about the frogging you had to do, that is so frustrating when that happens.

What a fun surprise to get in the mail. I saw the cute Christmas Dust Bunny done on the DD board and when looking for that issue of the magazine too. I was lucky enough to find one at my local JoAnns. Have fun at your TKD class,
Sue

Great progress on both pieces! That sucks you had to rip out all those rocks though!
