Day 3 in Brighton, its the end of another long day of stitching for me and Ann! I was toying with the idea of going home tonight after dinner. However, I was pretty comfortable, and Todd had called me warning that the forecast in our area was calling for freezing rain (I live about 3 hours away from Ann by car) so it was best to stay off of the roads. I'll finally be heading home tomorrow, not only because I'm starting to miss my boys (Todd included) but because I go back to work Monday morning *shudder*
Today was pretty dreary outside, and there weren't as many birds at the feeder today... but lots of greedy squirrels! I did managed to get this one pretty cool shot of a Chickadee about to take flight.
For most of the day, until dinner time I worked on Moonlight Guardian. I managed today to get the left hand border stitched. I would of liked to have also put in the box at the bottom with a moon in it, but I was pretty sick and tired of kreinik by this time! Can you believe, I've almost gone through one complete spool of 001HL, 025 and 060 #4BF! It seems like you need one spool of each colour per half of the border (and the instructions do tell you to get two of each, and its not an exaggeration). I love Dragon Dreams projects they stitch up so quickly!
Since I was sick and tired of MG, I took Ann's lead and started an ornament. Ann, the lucky devil has stitched up 7 ornaments since Christmas! No fair! So I pulled out one of the Mill Hill Kits I had thrown in my stitching bag on Thursday morning. I don't have the name of this one with me at the moment, that's downstairs. This is the ornament up to the point where I have to stuff it and close the final seam on the back. Tomorrow I'll re-post it with a totally finished picture and all the design info for you.
