Updates and two finishes

I have a couple of finishes to share first. Last week I completed the "F" in the Erica Michaels Alphabet Series. I also did the outline stitching and Kloster Blocks for the page finishing. I didn't finish the page because I needed fusible interfacing. Picked some up at Wal-Mart, but haven't finished it still.

This weekend I finished the "G" in the same series. Petra had posted a comment thanking me for enabling her. You are going to love working on this series. I will take the blame for enabling you to work on this series. I love that I can choose from my existing stash of fabrics and mix and match the threads to come up with my own take on each block. I think the book will be really pretty once I finish. I can't wait to see how your pages look either Petra.

I have also made some great progress on Midsummer Night's Fairy. I have just a bit more on her skirt and then finish the upper portion. After I finish the stitching, then it is on to the beading. She is so beautiful.

Finally, I have worked some on "Achoo" for my son, Nicholas. You can see the puppy's face, finally. This one is coming along quite well, considering I only stitch on it one day a week. Very easy piece.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving comments. Everyone is so sweet and encouraging.

Great finishes and that's a lovely fabric you have used for the Alphabets series.
Both progress are coming along beautifully too.
Have a nice week.

Your Erica Michael's alphabet pieces are so pretty. I loved this when I saw it last year but didn't have time to stitch it since I was involved in so many other things. I can't wait to see it when it's done. And love the progress on your other projects. Great stitching. Looks like you've been busy. Thanks for the b'day wishes for DH. :D Have a great week.

Coming along nicely on your stitching. The fabric you have chosen for the fairy is gorgeous.

Hi Jen! I still haven't started, but it's because I'm waiting on my LNS to get me the RG thread packs and we have to get together to find some fabric colors...I plan on doing this after she gets back from Nashville and I get back from a quick mini vacation to Disney. I love watching yours evolve though and can't wait to get my hands on starting mine! I won't be finishing them as my LNS has a finisher and honestly the little time I have I'd rather stitch then figure out the finishing, but I will one day have a nice book like YOU! Keep posting pics of yours I love them!
