Weekend Update

I've had quite the week so bear with me as I bring you all up to date. The week started off with a pleasant treat when I was profiled in Nordic Needles' weekly newsletter.

I started a new piece for our stitch-along (SAL) in the LHN/CCN group and I made much better progress that I anticipated. It's one of those projects that almost stitches itself because each stitch is a pleasure and brings a great design to life. We had 10 charts to chose from and I changed my mind at least half a dozen times before deciding on "Ladybugs and Bumblebees" by CCN. I'm stitching this on 28 count moss/celadon lugana using the DMC called for.
I also finished two previous stitched pieces into mini ornamental pillows which I did by adding beads all around the edge.
And last but not least is the blocks I stitched for the Fair & Square exchange using "Bernard" by Hand in Heart Needlework.
